One Million Degrees, a non-profit working with community college students, is currently seeking tutors for our scholars at community colleges in three different regions of Chicago. One Million Degrees (OMD) empowers low-income, highly motivated community college students to succeed in school, in work, and in life. Our unique scholar development model combines mentoring, tutoring, academic advising, life- and professionalism-skills development, personal supports, and financial assistance to help OMD scholars graduate at a rate over 3 times that of traditional college students, in half the time.
Campus locations for each region are listed below. Applicants must be available to tutor in at least one of the three regions for a minimum of 10 hours a week. It is expected that tutors will work at each of the campuses in their region, however they are not expected to work at more than one campus per day. For example, a tutor working in the Northern region may be scheduled for tutoring sessions at Truman College and Wilbur Wright College, but they are not expected to travel back and forth between both campuses on the same day. All campuses are accessible by public transportation and most have free parking available.
Applicants should also have availability on weekdays during the morning and/or afternoon. Most tutoring sessions last one hour each and take place between 8:00am and 7:00pm. All appointments are scheduled in coordination with OMD staff and take place on the college campus. Tutoring sessions are weekly, recurring appointments and are usually scheduled from Monday through Thursday. Psychology and English tutors are especially encouraged to apply! We are also looking for science and math tutors.
