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!

The tutors are very close to their students and they make the students happy around Christmas time.

Tutoring Chicago is a great organization. I've been volunteering with them for almost a year. The program has improved even from last year, which a tell-tale sign of an organization that wants to grow and improve. If you're open to work with kids in this age range, I think this is the perfect program to do so.

Very friendly and helpful group of people. It was nice to be able to work with the children they tutored and the families of those children and see the special attention that each tutor gave the children. They all seemed to have a very nice bond.

I Would like to keep kids like my self off the streets and i have nothing else to do over the summer.And most kids that dont have anything to do end up being on the streets gang banging and end up getting killed and i dont want to be the one doing any of that.It wont only keep me off the streets it would keep me out the house.My mom wouldnt have nothing to worry aboout because she would know where im at.I love working with other kids so it wont be a problem for me because im a nice person and i can work as long as you need me to.I will always be on time so thats no worry.Thats all for now you can get to know some more about me if i get the job.I Wish My Self The Best Of Luck....
