Introduction

The Community of Volunteer Educators (COVE) is a volunteer-run public service organization dedicated to providing tutoring services and educational enrichment experiences to communities in need across NYC. Our vision is to support communities by developing innovative academic programming to reduce educational inequities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our tutors specialize in a wide range of topics that cover preK-12, including:

​SCIENCE

MATH

SOCIAL STUDIES

FOREIGN LANGUAGE

and many more!​

We are also able to provide alternative learning strategies for students who require accommodations!

** The gravity of current events has compelled us to think critically about our role as COVE in relation to injustice. We have compiled a list of Children's Books that address race and racism. **
