7th Grade


Following are test prep tutors who have participated in our past open house events. Some businesses are owned by graduates of specialized high schools or hire graduates and students as teachers and tutors, and minority-owned.

These are not endorsements. The Stuyvesant HS alumni Diversity Initiative and the Stuyvesant HS Alumni Association do not benefit from these businesses. Families should use these suggestions as a launching pad in the research for the type of tutoring that suits their children.
