ORGANIZATION: Tutoring Chicago

Tutoring Collage

Deliver the power of education to a student right from your own home! Become a weekly volunteer tutor with Tutoring Chicago and work one-to-one with a 1st-9th grade student via Zoom. We have four programs that you can select from. Volunteer tutors provide academic support and serve as a role model and mentor to students from across the city. Weekly tutoring sessions focus on a variety of academic subjects, social-emotional learning, and the importance of accountability. No prior teaching experience is required, orientation and training are provided to all volunteers. Digital tutoring sessions take place Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings from 6-7:30PM (CST). Become a tutor and make a difference in a student's life today!

Life-changing role models needed.

Tutoring Chicago is a free one-to-one tutoring program for students in grades 1-10.

During the 2023-2024 school year, Tutoring Chicago will offer both in-person and digital tutoring options to our tutors/students from late September to late May.

No special skills, no experience or background in education is necessary. Above all the willingness to be there and the desire to impact, inspire and empower a student. Being present is all it takes. One and a half hours per week is enough to change a kid's life.

Our Values
Education is empowering. We believe that through one-to-one relationships with supportive tutors, students facing economic barriers can access brighter futures. Our mission, programs and delivery are centered in these values. We believe that all children regardless of economics, race, cultural background, gender identity or neighborhood are valuable, capable of greatness and have the right to the following:

  • A diverse representation of supportive adults who know them as individuals, value their needs and aspirations, and expose pathways for their success
  • Abundant exposure to knowledge, effective instruction, high quality resources, and critical technology
  • A secure sense of belonging and community that contributes to a healthy growth mindset
  • Accessible learning environments where role models are plentiful and a positive relationship with learning is encouraged
