GSU to offer tutoring opportunities through state initiative


Governors State University (GSU) will help educate Illinois students by hiring 288 tutors for a state-wide initiative. 

The university will hire tutors as a result of the Illinois Tutoring Initiative, which is designed around strategic partnerships with local school districts that were disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. The initiative is based on research and best practices for high-impact tutoring. Each participating student will be in individual or small group tutoring sessions for at least three hours each week. The Tutoring initiative will run until summer 2023.

This tutoring opportunity is not just for college students, but retired teachers, parents, and community members are welcome to apply. They will be trained via modules created by Illinois State University (ISU) faculty and staff. ISU has developed and will manage the tutor matching system and serve as a hub for data collection and research.
