Four days a week, 826 Boston’s main tutoring center in Egleston Square hums with activity. Students work one-on-one with trained tutors to complete homework, read aloud, and embark on publishing their writing in chapbooks and full-length collections. In 2014, we opened our first satellite tutoring program at the Grove Hall Branch of the Boston Public Library to better serve the needs of families in Dorchester and Roxbury. We’ve since grown to offer evening and weekend tutoring.

“I’m amazed at how competent they are as readers and writers now and how independent they’ve become when it comes to getting their homework done.”
