1515 West Ogden Avenue
LaGrange Park, IL 60526

School and Tutors on Wheels works to ensure the inclusion of those who are often excluded, underrepresented or undervalued because they lack English literacy skills. Since 1993, we have been providing free, individualized adult English literacy services in the suburbs of Chicago that help adult immigrants with low English literacy skills overcome the barriers that often prevent them from learning to read and write: lack of money, time, transportation and childcare. Our students break free from the poverty cycle and more fully participate in their communities.

The program provides free, one-on-one adult English tutoring in more than a dozen locations. Our individualized attention enables the students to focus on their areas of need and learn at their own pace. As they progress in our program, students are better able to find jobs, advance in the workplace, help their children with their homework, and confidently communicate with doctors, teachers, neighbors, and merchants.
