One to One Learning Since 1965
For over 50 years Tutoring Chicago has dedicated its mission to the educational and social needs of economically disadvantaged children in Chicago with one-to-one tutoring and high-quality programming that is not only academic, but developmental and reflective.
This year, Tutoring Chicago will serve 900 disadvantaged students from low-income families all around the Chicago area. Since 2007, Tutoring Chicago has operated out of St. Vincent de Paul Center at Halsted and Webster. In 2011, the program opened a second location in Logan Square, followed by site expansions in the West Loop (2016) and Hyde Park (2018).
Tutoring Chicago’s mission is to empower economically disadvantaged children through education.
Beginning in 1965 as Cabrini Green Tutoring Program by a group of Montgomery Ward employees, the organization has helped thousands of students in elementary school grow both personally and academically through weekly one-to-one tutoring sessions with high-quality adult volunteers.
