Connecting Chicago operates on a quarterly schedule. You can volunteer for tutoring in three month blocks. Each student will receive one or two 45-minute sessions per week and you set a schedule together!
The upcoming session is Quarter Four. Tutoring will commence on April 19th and end June 18th. The deadline to register is April 5th.
All new tutors are required to attend a 45-minute training session over Zoom. This will give you the confidence to get started with your student! Once you register, we will send instructions on how to sign up for training. Throughout your time as a volunteer, we will support you with curriculum resources and personalized help!
All tutoring takes place virtually. Our tutors are trained to make learning over the computer a seamless experience!
In the registration process, you will indicate any preferences for student age or subject area. We will match you with a student who fits your skill areas! We offer tutoring in math, reading, writing, science and social studies. We can also instruct Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese!
