With school back in session, Cluster Tutoring is in need of additional volunteers to tutor students from Chicago’s Austin community on either Tuesday or Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. At this time, we have more than 30 students on our waiting list. The age range for our waiting students is from kindergarten through high school, but most are in elementary school.

Cluster Tutoring has been providing free one-on-one tutoring for students from the Austin community and the West Side of Chicago for 20 years. Many of our tutors have been involved with Cluster for three or more years and find they get as much out of the program as the students. The atmosphere is supportive, friendly and relaxed.

The commitment involves one 90-minute session each week during the school year through mid-May. Volunteers can come either on Tuesday to the Pine Avenue Church (5460 W. Augusta in Chicago) or on Thursday to the First United Church of Oak Park (848 Lake St.).

For more information about Cluster, kindly call 773-378-5530, or send us an e-mail at clustertp@hotmail.com. For an overview of the program, check out our website at www.clustertutoring.org.
