Professional educators, at your service

WHY CHOOSE US?

We provide more than just tutors. Our years in Chicago public and charter schools have allowed us to forge amazing connections and amass a collaborative of educators whose love of teaching and learning has fostered a desire to do more. We know together we can affect change; drawing on our unique skills, styles and interests, we ensure that whatever your student, school or staff needs, we have someone who fits the bill. 

We understand the importance of data. Whether we're working one-on-one with your child or offering support in schools, we are rooted in data-driven practice and recognize the importance of assessing needs and adapting our interventions accordingly. Read more about our theoretical underpinnings here.

MISSION

We must face the facts and acknowledge the severe gaps in our federal, state and city education systems. Decisions made around educational policies consistently reinforce a lack of value in and understanding of supports students and schools deserve. Educators are under-valued and over-worked and often lack the time and resources to fully address every student’s needs.

 

We created BTEC as an attempt to address these gaps in education. All students deserve individualized attention and programming based on their unique needs. We also recognize gaps in other tutoring and enrichment programs, often comprised of a one-size-fits-all mentality which mirrors the difficulties we face in schools. We strive to break free from these constraints and work intentionally to create an opportunity to foster both teacher and student voice and personally tailor every experience to meet our clients' (/schools') unique needs.
