Created in March of 2020 by two Walter
Payton High School students, Connecting
Chicago is dedicated to combating
educational inequity by providing free
virtual 1:1 tutoring for students in
Kindergarten through 12th grade. We are
the largest student-led nonprofit in
Chicago and the fastest-growing provider
of free tutoring!
In our first year, Connecting Chicago has provided tutoring for more than 850 students from neighborhoods across Chicago. All volunteers are current high school, undergraduate, or graduate students, and are trained by the organization to provide high-quality instruction in Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and foreign languages.
Driven by our commitment to equal access, Connecting Chicago welcomes students with diverse learning needs and English as a Second Language (ESL) families.
