Welcome to Griffith Tutoring
Griffith Tutoring is a non-profit organization preparing at-risk Chicago high school students for the ACT college entrance exam by partnering with businesses and training their professionals to tutor and mentor the students.
Many high school students will not gain admission to college because they do not have a sufficient ACT score and cannot afford the private tutoring necessary to improve. Griffith Tutoring was established to address this issue, offering a free ACT tutoring program to students who have the desire and ability to attend college.
Griffith Tutoring offers a free six week ACT tutoring program to high school students as a means to increase students' standardized exam scores, expose students to young professionals, and improve Chicago's low college attendance rate. See more at Tutoring Program.
The organizations partners with Chicago businesses to supply the volunteer tutors to implement its curriculum and offers a simple, turn-key operation in which businesses can further their civic involvement. See more at Volunteer.
Griffith Tutoring typically enrolls students who project to score a 15 to 18 on the ACT with our goal to these students scoring in the 20s. See more at Students.
Griffith Tutoring relies on the generous support of individuals, foundations, and businesses to support its program, implement its strategic plan, and keep it completely free to the students. See more at Sponsorship.
