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. We rely on the support of our volunteers, sponsors, and donors in our efforts to to increase students' standardized exam scores, expose students to young professionals, and improve Chicago's low college attendance rate.
By partnering with area businesses for volunteer tutors, Griffith Tutoring is able to maintain a 2:1 student-tutor ratio, which not only gives the students individualized instruction but also provides them with outstanding exposure to professionals and potential mentors.
With private tutoring costing over a thousand dollars per student, Griffith Tutoring offers a remarkable value and cost effective way for donors to impact numerous at-risk students. At a mere $250 a student, Griffith Tutoring provides its individualized six-week service that consistently increases student scores and exposes students to inspiring young professionals.
