Femi Memorial Outreach

Empowering Students. Turning Lives Around.


Femi Memorial Outreach offers an elementary and middle school after-school homework/tutoring program to students needing specific support in Math and/or English. Tutoring is also available to improve difficulties in other school subjects or as a private session. In addition, tutors serve as mentors for social skill development to improve academic success.

To qualify to participate in the after-school tutoring program, a student:

  • Needs assistance in Math and/or English or some other subject.
  • Receives a low test score of 40% or below basic in Math and/or English on the Illinois Standard Achievement Test (ISAT)
  • Struggles with completion of homework due to lack of language fluency or support at home.

Current tutors are Loyola University undergraduate or graduate students from different academic concentrations who have experience in tutoring, with children or teaching experience. Student tutors receive a federal work-study subsidy. There is no charge for tutoring to the students needing after-school assistance.

Private tutoring is available for grades 1st through 8th. We provide private tutoring in your home or at a neutral location for a nominal free. Our tutors are experienced in all subjects and come from Loyola University, Dominican University, and University of Chicago. If you are interested in private tutoring, please call 773-728-1035 or email us at contact@femioutreach.org for more information.
