STUDENTS IN CLUSTER TUTORING range from straight-A, honor roll kids to those who struggle with the basics of math and reading. At Cluster we’ve had success with both types of students. New students in grades K through 8 may register for the program. Returning students may remain with the program through grade 12. Cluster encourages strong parental involvement in the tutoring program and requires consistent student attendance.
Cluster gives priority enrollment to students from the Austin neighborhood in Chicago. Students from immediately surrounding Chicago neighborhoods will be considered once all Austin students have been matched with a tutor. Parents who want to enroll their children in Cluster are required to attend one of the new student registration sessions that occur in late August and early September. Individual orientation sessions with the Director may be arranged in subsequent months depending upon tutor availability. Please check the Cluster calendar beginning in July for new student registration session dates.
Note: Registration with Cluster is no guarantee of enrollment and placement with a tutor. We are limited by the number of tutors who volunteer each year. Students who are not initially placed with a tutor are placed on a waiting list of students until a match can be made.
