About Us
Aquinas Literacy Center was founded by the Adrian Dominican Sisters in 1996. We offer individualized English language instruction to residents of McKinley Park and other south and southwest side Chicago neighborhoods. We rely heavily on volunteers and offer all of our services at no cost to students.

The majority of our English language instruction comes in the form of one-on-one tutoring. Each week we welcome hundreds of volunteer tutors and area students to the center for these sessions. Our tutors use a variety of proven teaching techniques to advance their studentš-┤ understanding of English.

Each student also communicates his or her personal goals to their tutor, who incorporates them into each lesson. These goals help students remain engaged throughout their studies and often focus on basic needs like finding a job, communicating in the workplace, or helping children with homework.

In addition to one-on-one instruction, Aquinas Literacy Center provides several opportunities for students to learn in groups. These include conversation classes, computer classes, and our popular Family Literacy Night. All of these programs build a strong sense of community among students.

The mission of Aquinas Literacy Center is to help students develop economically, socially, and culturally. We help students develop marketable job skills; participate in community, political, and religious activities; and interact with people from other cultures in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Aquinas Literacy Center is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00am to 8:00pm. We are always eager to accept new tutors, students, and supporters. If you are interested in learning more about Aquinas Literacy Center, please call 773.927.0512 or send an e-mail to
