Students and tutors once gathered in the Sisters of St. Joseph’s “School on Wheels” bus.  Today, they work together at one of the TEACH locations in Cook, DuPage, and Will counties.

Learning English isn’t the only goal of our TEACH students. They also have goals of becoming American citizens which are attained with the help and encouragement of their tutors.

A tutor encourages his student to identify the continents on the globe. English is the only language spoken during tutoring sessions.

Workbooks and worksheets are used to help students learn the English language. Some exercises require students to create stories from pictures.

Reaching out to the community, TEACH offers classes to companies and their employees. These classes are offered after-hours at an employee’s workplace and at 17 local facilities.

Due to the ever-growing threat of transmission of the Coronavirus, we are suspending in-person tutoring. We are offering special activities and lessons.  If you have questions or concerns, please call, text, or email your tutor. Stay healthy.

Through free individualized English instruction, we work toward systemic change in society by empowering students to build their strengths and the effective use of their voice. We work to ensure the inclusion of those who are typically excluded, underrepresented or undervalued. TEACH exists, “That All May Be One.”

TEACH reaches 40 communities in Western Cook, DuPage, and Will counties.
