Become a tutor, mentor and role model.

Tutoring Chicago is a free one-to-one tutoring program for students in grades 1-12.

During the 2024-2025 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.
