Adult Education Volunteer Tutor
Do you have the gift of teaching and the love of working with others? The Learning Center/House of Connections needs you! We are a community based organization that provides FREE adult basic education, high school equivalency test preparation, English as a Second Language, and computer classes to people of the North Lawndale and Little Village communities. To continue our work, we need your support as a tutor!
We’re asking our volunteer tutors to commit to 1 hour a week or more of tutoring. Our classes are scheduled Monday-Thursday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at The Learning Center on Millard. We can be flexible with your schedule to determine when you can come each week and for how long.
You will work one-on-one with students while the class is facilitated by a Malcolm X College instructor. We will figure out which class is the best fit for you once you get started.
