“Really I can’t say enough good things about the Chicago Home Tutor. Our tutor is a great tutor, but part of what makes this exceptional is that they measure what they are doing, write detailed assessments of the student’s progress, and work with the teachers at the school.”– Beth H, April 2015

Welcome to The Chicago Home Tutor where we use the most current research in education and psychology to provide your child with expert tutoring in the convenience of your home- in the city of Chicago and the suburbs. 

As a team of school psychologists and specialized teachers working together, we have the skills to help every student reach his or her potential. Our tutors have a variety of areas of expertise, and we consult one another to find creative, effective solutions for all of our students.

We begin with a thorough assessment to uncover your student’s precise needs and skill deficits. We then design targeted lessons, constantly monitoring progress to maximize effectiveness and, when needed, alter our approach based on your student’s response to our lessons.  

Our graduate training in psychology has prepared us to work with diverse populations including students with ADHD, executive functioning difficultiesautism, learning disabilities, and emotional challenges. We also do psychological evaluations to help determine what services your student needs and can support you to arrange creative solutions for your homeschooling program. We can serve students on-site where they need us like in private schools and medical settings.

For additional information please see the menu tabs and contact us directly. We look forward to hearing from you!

Mission Statement
At The Chicago Home Tutor we know that each child is a unique kaleidoscope of skills, and we work to attune to your child’s needs by connecting with him or her and curiously listening and observing. We seek input from parents, teachers, and anyone else who can help us see the world more clearly through your child’s eyes. Then we send a compassionate expert equipped with an effective, scientifically supported program to remove any barriers to success. Understanding that we as teachers are lifelong learners who, like your child, function best with support, we monitor progress and consult research and other professionals to ensure that we are providing the best services possible.

What Parents Say:

The Chicago Home Tutor has had a transformative effect on our son's reading and writing ability over a really short period of time. Our tutor is fun, approachable and our son loves her classes. He learns by playing and he is proud to show us his progress. She details improvements and compares our child to the average at his age. It's invaluable to know where he stands and how he's doing great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chicago Home Tutor to every parent seeking for a top class tutor.

The Chicago Tutor was a wonderful gift during a challenging time for my daughter. The whole process worked marvelously smoothly. Ryan was terrific - he kept my daughter motivated and feeling secure. He was also responsive to changes when they became necessary. And he could teach the material well. We couldn't have asked for anything more!
-Joy B, February 2016

Our tutor is an excellent and engaging tutor. She works with my 7 year old daughter on math concepts and is very effective. My daughter actually looks forward to working with her. She is very conscientious and professional; she is always prepared with materials and has multiple ways of approaching the subject. I would highly recommend the Chicago Home Tutor to anyone in need of a tutor.

I am so happy with the Chicago Home Tutor. You can tell our tutor, Laura, has prepared every class meticulously and knows perfectly what each student needs. My son has improved a lot with her help, and he smiles every time I tell him that he will be seeing Ms. R.
