What am I signing up for?
One and a half hours per week is enough to change a kid’s life.
Every week, you’ll show up for one student. You’ll focus your attention on just that student for the duration of the school year, and have occasional conversations with that student’s parents and (perhaps) teachers.
Tutoring sessions will take place at a Tutoring Chicago location – Near North, Near West, or Hyde Park – or online, one Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday per week.
We will supply the curriculum and resources needed, covering a range of subjects. Potentially, you’ll help your student with any subject, but most students need particular help with math and reading.
Do I need any special skills?
No, you just need to be willing, willing to be there reliably for just one kid, and that kid’s family. You don’t need to be some sort of genius. You don’t even have to have a background in education.
What our kids need most is a tutor who is reliable and interested, who they can look up to, and who’ll be there to cheer them on as they learn new skills, new student habits and new ways to apply themselves.
