Chicagoland Tutoring Positions

When students come to us, it’s at a critical moment in their schooling. Maybe they’re struggling with math, their grades have slipped, or they’re preparing for the ACT. At Nurturing Wisdom, we want to be supportive and come up with a plan to help students overcome obstacles to success. And that’s where YOU come in.

Our tutors love to make a difference in the lives of their students by teaching them new skills, building their confidence, and tracking their progress along the way. We don’t ask you to follow a script, to “sell” parents on tutoring they don’t need, or to teach something you don’t believe in. Instead, we give you access to tools and support so that you can focus on helping your students.
