Looking to make a lasting impact on your community? Join our growing volunteer team in Logan Square and help a student develop the foundation skills to be successful in school and in life.

The Basics:

  • Volunteers are matched one-to-one with a student in 1st-6th grade and meet with that same student once a week during the school year on Mon, Tues, OR Wed from 6:00-7:30pm.
  • To begin, you just need to complete a brief application, background check, and attend a 90-minute orientation.
  • Typical tutoring sessions include homework review and skill-building activities in literacy, math, technology, and other key subject areas.
  • Tutoring Chicago provides a wide variety of resources and materials and staff are on-hand to assist with questions.
  • For the 2020-2021 program year, Tutoring Chicago will also provide digital learning opportunities so volunteers and students will be able to connect virtually.

Mission Statement

Empowering economically disadvantaged children through education.


Since 1965, Tutoring Chicago has provided free one-to-one tutoring to economically disadvantaged 1st-6th graders. Currently, we serve over 700 students with the help of over 700 dedicated volunteers and we're opening a new location in Hyde Park in September 2018!

Our programs take place on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 6-7:30pm. Tutors and students meet one night per week to review homework and work on reading, writing, math, and life skills.

Chicago students need great tutors and mentors like you, now more than ever. We welcome you to join our growing volunteer team for the 2018-2019 school year!
