One-on-One Tutoring in Dupage County, Illinois


It can be challenging for teachers in the classroom to give every student the attention they need to succeed. Fortunately, Prep Academy Tutors provides at-home and online one-on-one tutoring in Dupage County, Illinois.

 By bringing education into your home, our tutors can better explain course material and revisit challenging subject matter to fill in any gaps in your child’s knowledge.

 Our educators work one-one-one with students to make a connection, better understand the student’s individual educational needs, and accommodate accordingly with a customized education plan that is unique to the student.

 Instead of acting like a teacher at the front of the classroom, our tutors act more like a “smart friend” who can reiterate source material and explain subject matter in a way that is easy to understand.

Our tutors create a safe, low-pressure educational environment where students feel like they can learn and develop comprehension at their own pace.

Prep Academy Tutors provides semi-private tutoring in Dupage County so that students can benefit from the magic that happens when you put two heads together.

If your child and a friend are at a similar learning stage and are interested in utilizing tutoring, they can benefit from having the same instructor while also getting a more one-on-one approach to learning.

Prep Academy Tutors offers group tutoring in Dupage County, Illinois for groups of 3-6 students. While group tutoring does not provide the same personalization as one-on-one tutoring, it makes up for this with the energy, camaraderie, and collaboration that comes with group learning.

In group tutoring, students can come together to work as a team, brainstorm, bounce ideas off one another, and provide each other with the support and encouragement to confidently set and reach academic goals.

Because all students have different learning needs, capabilities, and interests, some subjects can pose as more of a challenge in the classroom than others. This is why Prep Academy Tutors hires certified educators with various specialties.

 Whether you are looking for a science tutor or English tutor in Dupage County, we can pair your child with a tutor who has the specialized knowledge needed to fill in any gaps in their knowledge of a particular subject matter.


We offer tutoring for the following subjects:

● Science (Physics, Biology, Chemistry, General Science, Computer Science)

● Social Studies (Philosophy, History, Geography, Civics)

● Mathematics (General Mathematics, Algebra & Geometry, Calculus & Vectors, Data Management, Advanced Functions)

● English (Essay Writing, Reading, Literature, Writing Skills)

● Languages (Spanish, Mandarin, French, Italian and Latin)

Enrichment Programs

Tutoring is for more than just remediation purposes. Tutoring can be an enriching experience for any student looking to learn more or get ahead. Prep Academy Tutors offers enrichment tutoring programs in Westchester County to help students challenge themselves academically.


Remedial Programs:

Every child is capable of learning when equipped with the right tools. Prep Academy Tutors offers remedial programs that are designed to provide these tools to students struggling with subjects like reading and English.

We offer two remedial programs:


Direct Instruction Reading Mastery Program: Our tutors offer a direct instruction reading mastery program that is designed to help students struggling with reading comprehension. This program is 90% review based and uses carefully developed and fully-scripted directions to help students to retain information long term and develop comprehension at a faster rate.


The Wilson Reading System: This program is designed to suit the educational needs of students with dyslexia or other language-based learning disabilities. Tutors executing this program exercise the Orton-Gillingham method; which is the concept of utilizing multi-sensory instruction through reading, listening, seeing, etc., which helps students to retain literacy comprehension.

Prep Academy Tutors provides detailed educational consultations and advocacy services to parents and families. Our co-owner and director Kathleen, believes in and sees the benefit of the student, family, and school all working together as one cohesive team.

Kathleen is a licensed School Counselor, and has extensive experience working in the public schools as a counselor and special education case manager. Alongside her formal training as an educator, Kathleen is a parent to her diverse three children: a school-aged son with autism, a preschool-aged son, and a sassy young daughter.
