Call Agudah @ (212) 797-9000 and ask for Leah Steinberg. She will give you names of P3 providers.

What is P3?August 5, 2010 5:17 am at 5:17 am #738230
Are you answering your own question??
P3 maven , the fact that you are even use such a user name, implies the fact that you know about P3. How can you know this P3 center is so unbelievable if you just found out about it?

P-3 is a special education service offered by the NYC Department of Education to private school students; basically, it’s free tutoring for kids who are deemed eligible. Eligibility is determined by a psychological evaluation conducted by the DOE without regard to income.
To provide P-3 services, one must be NY state certified and willing to work either: a) directly for the DOE on a 1099 tax form and receive your wages at least 6 weeks after the end of each month, or b) for a P-3 agency (such P3 Maven’s post) for less pay than the DOE offers, but on a W-2 tax form and (hopefully) every 2 or 4 weeks.
Also, most Yeshivos only allow P-3 services to be provided during afternoon hours (or at the child’s home or a P-3 center in the evening) which is a big drawback for mothers who wish to be home for their children.August 5, 2010 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #738234
thank you!August 5, 2010 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #738235

Mazel: what do you mean by that?August 6, 2010 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #738237
everyone has to calm dif she is advertising who cares??
shes just helping the parents like me to find providers for our kids. be nice membersAugust 6, 2010 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #738238
no one is being anything but calm
as far as “who cares?”
no one likes to be deceived and lied to.
which may or may not be the case here but there are strong grounds for suspicion.August 6, 2010 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #738239
ok. I also used this center in july when my daughter got p-3 for summer bec she did not use some hours and they sent me a provider to work with her upstate. so i am thankful to them. I recommend them.August 6, 2010 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm #738240
I am a P-3 Provider and i am happy with their services because, they will provide services to my son in 2nd grade toward the end of the summer. I inquired to work with them the upcoming year and they pay the week after i bill instead of getting paid from the Board of Ed 2 or more months later. Thats the reasons i suggested them from the ad i saw in the community magazine the day after i poseted.
Im sorry for the confusion, i wanted to help people that were looking for providers.August 6, 2010 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #738241
thank you for the explanation.
no more posts on this matter please
only on the subject.
thanksAugust 6, 2010 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #738242
mazal please see my last postAugust 6, 2010 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #738243
Most schools do have P3 providers they work with. I went to DOE evaluation to try to get services for my children. Hopefully they will be approved and will get the extra educational help they need. Our school has a lady they work with specifically to provide P3.August 8, 2010 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #738245
Just make sure your child is really getting serviced at school for the full hours entitled. It’s tempting for P3 providers to cut down on time spent with each child so as to squeeze in more children.
Also, insist that your child not be grouped with more than one other child in order to maximize the benefit of the tutoring.August 8, 2010 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm #738246yitzchokmParticipant
as a p3 provider myself, I would not advise parents to “insist that your child not be grouped with more than one other child”. The reason being that p3 providers get paid per session, based on the amount of child they provide for. I don’t know of many p3 providers who are willing to tutor only one child at a time. I would be weary of a p3 provider willing to work for less pay.
As a side note, there’s nothing wrong with a group session. I find it a more lively and productive then a one-on-one session.August 8, 2010 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #738247
I need a p-3 provider for kids i work with in school. Any members available?August 9, 2010 3:08 am at 3:08 am #738248
Why was my post deleted. I am wrote I was confused. P3 maven mentioned she needed a p3 provider for her kids, yet she is a p3 provider herself. Can she please explain how come she can’t give that service to her children. I don’t understand why my post was deleted. Her OP didn’t make sense to me unless the Mods understood her point and can possibly explain it to me. Thanks. Don’t mean to cause trouble. Just a little confused.August 9, 2010 1:27 pm at 1:27 pm #738249
I think its harder to give your kids P-3 if your the mother. Better to get someone from outside whom the kids do not know than to learn with someone they are comfortable with. (not so hard to understand!)February 9, 2011 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #738250GemilasMember
I am looking for a P3 provider for my son. He has 10 P3s. Ideally in afternoon after 3:00 for 21/2 hours per day Mon-Thur. He is 9 years old in 4th grade. We live in BP. Any ideas?February 9, 2011 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #738251always hereParticipant
as mentioned in the 3rd post.. Leah Steinberg. she was wonderful for my daughter (@ BYBPHS). I dunno what # she can be reached @, unless the one from the 3rd poster’s still good. g’luck!February 9, 2011 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #738252
Will your son benefit from such long hours of learning?
Perhaps it would be beneficial to remove him from secular studies in Yeshiva altogether (and probably parts of Limudei Kodesh, too) and use that time (either in school or at home) for P3 services.February 9, 2011 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #738253GemilasMember
The idea is for him not to attend Yeshiva for English and hopefully have someone come to our house. Also, we are thinking of maybe only doing 2 hours a day and not 2 1/2 hours.
BTW – we are in contact with the Agudah and we are following up on some leads. No positive hits yet. It is difficult since in the middle of the year most P3 providers are already booked.
