Get to Know Us
We are an organization at the University at Buffalo (UB) that provides free 1-on-1 virtual tutoring and other educational services to local K-12 students. Our goal is to give back to our local community and enrich students' lives. We know that some students need extra help and are not able to afford tutoring, which can lead them to fall behind. We want to make sure that all children get the extra help they need so that they thrive educationally and are able to achieve their goals.
UB Homework Helpers is made possible by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and her team. AOC's Homework Helpers was launched by Team AOC in 2020 in order to assist families with the demands of online learning. Since then, AOC's Homework Helpers has provided families across New York City with over 5,000 hours of virtual homework assistance.
