Celebrating its 10th year, Central Park Tutors has been featured in the NY Times, hired by Columbia Teachers College, and worked with students from more than 50 private schools in NYC. With some of the best tutors in NYC, Central Park Tutors provides homework help, test-prep, and college admissions guidance. Each tutor has a Masters degree and is experienced, personable, and supportive.

Central Park Tutors has a great reputation for providing academic support for students with special needs, general organizational help, and test-prep, including the SHSAT, ISEE, ACT and SAT.

In the words of one mom, “I want to stand on a soapbox and thank Central Park Tutors for helping my daughter! She for once felt good about math—but I could see more; she actually was saying she felt good about herself."

MamaSoul.com

0

The purpose of MamaSoul.com is to provide a place where women can ask questions and find answers in a safe, non-judgmental space; a place where women can access yoga and meditation from their home when walking out the door is too much hard work; a place where they can interact with nutritionists, doulas, social workers, and plain old mamas who know. Throw in a little curated shopping experience with recommended items to promote healthy living and some pampering, and you have MamaSoul.

MamaSoul knows that women in all communities can be in need of this type of help, but unfortunately don't have the access or the means. That's why 50% of monthly membership fees go toward a charity promoting mental health and wellness in women (for example, during National Yoga Month, MamaSoul will be donating to The Yoga Alliance).

Please visit the website for more information and to join.

My First Book Club

0

Through My First Book Club, children will gain a love of reading and an appreciation of books. They'll have the opportunity to become part of a community of readers and experience the social power of peers working together to explore the wonderfully exciting world of books. 

Clubs meet for one hour each week for ten consecutive weeks. Each session supports early childhood learners in making meaning while they read, think, and talk about books. Through the use of an interactive read-aloud, habits of a good reader are demonstrated. Children participate in guided conversations and activities about featured books.

Each club is kept to a maximum of 6 readers, and clubs are organized by age group. If you have a group of 4-6 children and would like to host a club, My First Book Club can create a class for you at your home.

My First Book Club will help your children establish their identities as readers while building the foundational skills for reading.
