You are the One we need.
School and Tutors on Wheels is a neighborhood based adult English literacy program that
empowers low-income adults by teaching them English literacy and valuable life skills. We
break the language barrier and set people on the road to a better life through free one-on-one
tutoring in suburban Cook and DuPage counties.
Improving adult English literacy improves our schools, public safety, health literacy and
workplace productivity-this helps our communities and our economy.
Since 1993 School and Tutors on Wheels has brought 5,000 adult learners together with
more than 2,500 volunteers in our suburban sites. These one-on-one relationships are life-
Lives are changed in many ways when a one-on-one tutor volunteers one hour a week at one
of our many community partnership sites. Many of our students are able to attain new jobs or
job promotions, become U.S. citizens and obtain their G.E.D.
Tutors are the wheels that make our program run! It is not necessary to speak a second
language to volunteer in our program. We provide the training and tools needed to make the
tutoring experience easy and enjoyable. Becoming a volunteer is simple. The first step is to
sign up for a free tutor training workshop. We then match you with a student at an hour that is
convenient for you, morning, afternoon or evening. If you would like to become a tutor, call
Jeanie Jadran, Program Director, School and Tutors on Wheels, at 630-217-0396.
