STUDENTS IN LEARNING EDGE TUTORING range from straight-A, honor roll kids to those who struggle with the basics of math and reading. We’ve had success with both types of students. New students in grades K through 8 may register for the program. Returning students may remain with the program through grade 12. Learning Edge encourages strong parental involvement in the tutoring program and requires consistent student attendance to remain in the program.
Learning Edge gives priority enrollment to students from the Austin neighborhood in Chicago. Students from immediately surrounding Chicago neighborhoods will be considered once all Austin students have been matched with a tutor. Parents who want to enroll their children are required to attend one of the new student registration sessions that occur in early October. Individual orientation sessions with the Program Coordinator may be arranged in subsequent months depending upon tutor availability. Please check the calendar beginning in July for new student registration session dates.
Note: Registration is no guarantee of enrollment and placement with a tutor. We are limited by the number of tutors who volunteer each year. Students who are not initially placed with a tutor are placed on a waiting list of students until a match can be made.
New Student Registration
Registration is open from August 1st through January 31st. Tutoring for new students begins in October.
