PBHA's Boston Refugee Youth Enrichment Tutoring

Purpose Statement

The BRYE Tutoring program, founded in 1987, strives to give Vietnamese children a foothold in America through instruction in the English language. By fostering a close, mentoring relationship between tutor and tutee, BRYE Tutoring is dedicated to bridging the cultural barrier not only through knowledge of language, but also by inspiring confidence and increasing self-esteem through a solid friendship. Tutors do not have to know any Vietnamese to be in the program. BRYE's selective application process chooses highly dedicated, outstanding tutors who devote Monday or Thursday (or both!), from 3:30-6:00 pm (including travel time), to tutoring. Tutors create their own curriculum tailored to their individual student, ages 6-12. BRYE Tutoring also takes two field trips per semester. Contact Chethan Bachireddy (bachired@fas) or Tiffany Niver (niver@fas) for an application or with questions.
