 Remote Learning Tutoring Service

Brittany Jean, a former AF teacher, has started a remote learning tutoring service. For families interested in this type of support, please visit to learn more.
<FYI> Free or Reduced Virtual Tutoring Options
Team Special Services has assembled this Virtual Tutoring Options resource outlining free or low-cost tutoring services available to our students that schools could share with scholars and families around Progress Report or Report Card nights. The list currently includes programs through Columbia University, Fordham University, and other credible programs. Please make this available for families or share specific tutoring organizations with your school communities as you see fit. The programs listed meet the following criteria that we believe can provide some support for scholars: 
  • Free or low cost
  • Provides a consistent tutor
  • Provides a higher frequency of 2+ times a week for 1-2 hours
  • Provides one-on-one or small group tutoring 
Achievement First is always in search of great teammates to join our community.  Through our referral program, we connect with hundreds of candidates every year. Recently, we launched an external referral program—this means that anyone can submit a referral and be eligible for a bonus, even if they aren’t employed by Achievement First. Do you know someone who you think would make a great teacher, leader, or operations teammate at one of our schools? Click here to submit a referral. If your referral is hired, you can earn a cash bonus. For complete rules, read here.
