Tutor Time – Lansingburgh Branch

Lansingburgh Branch

tutor time

RPI’s Tutor Time was founded in Fall 2001 by a group of students participating in the America Reads / America Counts Work Study program, a government sponsored program that promotes the “no child left behind” initiative. Its goal is to ensure that each child, grades K-9, receive assistance in basic math and reading skills.

Tutor Time works on an appointment basis at each of its locations. Students are given one hour appointments between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Please make your appointment by calling The Tutor Time Hotline: 518-276-3098 or by filling out an application.

To see events at other libraries check out this system wide youth services calendar.
