About Us

Dutchess-Orange Tutoring (DOT) for K-12 in Response to COVID-19 is a network of local undergrads and high school students in the Orange and Dutchess, New York area providing virtual academic assistance to K-12 students in public districts in these counties while school is remote or hybrid. 


DOT particularly seeks to help students who are at risk of being disproportionately affected by remote learning, including but not limited to students with parents who do not have the time to supplement their children’s new form of online learning, do not speak English as a first language, or do not otherwise have the ability to help their kids with their coursework. DOT also seeks to help students who typically rely on getting extra help from teachers outside of normal classroom help.


DOT is fully volunteer-based and is completely free (with the exception of suggested donations) to all students who sign up for the service. Since March 2020, DOT has facilitated over 250 matches between students/families and volunteer tutors. Read more about our team here.
