Mission

Tutoring Chicago's mission: Empowering economically disadvantaged children through education.

Tutoring Chicago develops a foundation for life-long learning by providing free one-to-one tutoring and mentoring to economically disadvantaged children. We currently serve 900+ students in grades 1-6, and will be expanding to serve 1000 by 2020. Please visit our website for more info, and thanks for visiting our Great Hearts page!

For the 2020-2021 program year, we will be providing a digital learning option so that our students and volunteers have the opportunity to connect virtually as well!

Tutoring Chicago is a private, non-profit organization that provides free weekly tutoring to 900+ students in grades one through six with the help of 900+ dedicated volunteers.

Our students come from economically disadvantaged families from all around Chicago, but most significantly from the Near North and Near West neighborhoods as well as the Logan Square and the Greater Hyde Park areas. Tutoring sessions are held Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM. Each student is paired with his/her own volunteer tutor. The program provides a safe, stable learning environment and individualized attention for the children.
