Built on an Amazing Foundation

Welcome to the World's First Tutoring Lounge®

Voted Best Test Prep Tutors in Chicago

The House® is the most widely acclaimed tutoring service in Chicago, and the North Shore.


About The House®

Originally founded in 2010, our company started with one mission in mind, to help relieve the anxiety families have regarding their students’ education by providing the very best educational support possible.

We found that our approach was unique. No other tutoring company was as interested as we were in getting to know our students.

This allowed us to gain amazing insights into how we developed our tutoring and test prep services. It helped us define success.

We are a reflection of what we have learned. Children thrive when given elements of control. We have everything kids need to succeed academically. We build a community of support for students and their families.

Put simply, The House® offers solutions.

Our Testimonials

I just got the most amazing call from my daughter just now. She was practically jumping through the phone and wanted to let me know that her US History test was AWESOME. I haven’t heard her this proud and excited about her work in a very long time- We are absolutely thrilled.

I cannot thank you and your tutor enough. My daughter was absolutely over the moon with her session. She said it was amazing. I think you found the perfect person to take her where she wants to go. This is going to be a great match. With many thanks!!

Parent, WInnetka

You have given Luke the desire to do well. I’ve been working on that for 4 years! He was so excited to show me his grades and current jump in overall GPA. I don’t know what you are doing, or how you are doing it, but thank you!

Parent, Glencoe

Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for all the support that my son got over this first semester in high school. It seemed that he had no idea what he was doing at the start of his freshman year. Your tutor assisted him with organization, study, writing and most importantly thinking skills... best of all, my son loves working with him! Your tutor completely changed the course of his first semester.
