    What People are Saying about Tutoring Chicago

    One of the coolest things I’ve gone to as a tutor is the Life Skills dinner…the reward at the end is awesome – lots of really good food and a fun night out to dinner with friends from tutoring!

    Volunteering with Tutoring Chicago was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done.

    Tutoring Chicago has allowed my son to have another positive role model in his life, his tutor Lucy… without Tutoring Chicago I do not know where we would be.

    I’ve been volunteering with Tutoring Chicago for more than 3 years now and have enjoyed every minute of it!
