Affordable and Effective 1:1 Tutoring for Local K-12 Students
Officially launched in 2016-2017, Maroon Tutor Match (MTM) is a University-student led program within NSP that directly matches University students to local families who are looking for individualized tutoring in a particular subject area.
On average, it takes only 5 weeks for MTM students see a consistent improvement in their academic performance, with most student's seeing a one-letter grade increase after tutoring! In 2017-2018, 173 University students participated in MTM and worked with 388 families.
Maroon Tutor Match charges $13 an hour for tutoring, where parents directly pay tutors for their services. Scholarships are awarded based on need as evidenced by participation in a government assistance program. All students with demonstrated need receive full-rate scholarships thanks to a generous grant from the University of Chicago's Women's Board.
Matching is currently paused for the summer of 2019. We will resume matching once the UChicago academic year resumes in the fall!
