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 our 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 provide you with tools and support so that you can focus on helping your students.
If you have a passion for education and love working one-on-one with students, consider joining our team of tutors! We have a great program and team in place to help you become an outstanding tutor.
Nurturing Wisdom provides one-on-one, in-home tutoring throughout the Chicago area.
