What We Do

Dutchess-Orange Tutoring (DOT) strives to level the local playing field by focusing on serving student populations with disproportionate access to educational resources.

Through DOT, K-12 students can receive access to free 1-on-1 virtual tutoring to supplement learning in subjects ranging from math to English to college readiness. Each K-12 student is paired with a volunteer tutor, who typically meets with the student on a weekly or biweekly basis.


With an emphasis on community service, educational equity, and circular learning, we are on a mission to leverage our collective power as students to center education in how we uplift each other and our communities.
