The Clinic offers recommendations for several sites that list Chicago area tutors, community centers, advocacy groups, and other resources. This list is not meant to be comprehensive, and we welcome your input. If you have had an experience at a tutoring or community center that you found useful we ask you to please share it with us so we can share it with other families.
