Every student deserves the chance to reach his or her full educational potential.

Unfortunately, the volume of material and scarcity of time within most classrooms leads to fast-paced lectures. Students may feel confused or overwhelmed by the material, fall behind, and eventually lose the motivation to continue trying. However, there is no shame in asking for professional assistance, and this is precisely the reason Varsity Tutors exists. Our tutors provide tutoring to Chicago-area students in a one-on-one setting to ensure they have the support they require in order to reach their academic goals.

Our individualized approach and exceptional tutors is what differentiates us from other Chicago tutoring services. We believe that no student deserves “one size fits all” instruction. A student learns best when the teaching is tailored to his or her own personal style. Our educational directors spend countless hours carefully matching students and tutors in Chicago to specifically achieve a fit that is ideal for each person. Our pairing process takes into account learning styles, teaching styles, strengths, weaknesses, personalities, and numerous other factors to provide maximum potential for powerful results.

What else makes Varsity Tutors’ private tutoring services in Chicago unique?

Exceptional  Chicago Tutors – More Than Just Top Scores

High grades alone are not sufficient to qualify as one of our Chicago private tutors. A Varsity Tutors instructor must not simply be academically brilliant but also personable and passionate about teaching. We understand how difficult it can be to trust your education to anyone which is why we only select instructors who pass our rigorous application process. A tutor’s perfect test scores and straight A’s are not sufficient qualifications if he or she is unable to foster a meaningful connection with a student. Moreover, knowledge needs to be communicated in an approachable, easily understood manner in order for tutoring sessions to be efficient and worthwhile.


Chicago is a large city, and commuting to a tutoring session can be challenging. Rather than traveling to a predetermined location on specific, inflexible days, allow our private tutors in Chicago to come to you. The instructor will work with you to identify a schedule that works best for you. The tutors can hold tutoring sessions in the comfort of your own home, at a local coffee shop, on your campus, in a library, or another location of your choosing. Varsity Tutors understands that you expect a convenient service; we wish to make the learning experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible through our highly convenient tutoring services in Chicago, IL and the surrounding metro area. Call us today to learn more.
