Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pay for tutoring or resources?

Nope! Not a dime. All of our team members are volunteers, and we don't charge for our services. If you would like to donate to MEC, please use the donation page. If you would like to pay a tutor for their service, you can definitely contact them about how to proceed.

How will the safety and privacy of my child be protected?

The safey and privacy of your child is of utmost importance to us at MEC. All of our tutors are vetted by our leadership team, in addition to them having a background check through the Monticello Public School District #882. During the virtual tutoring sessions, you are more than welcome to shut off your child's camera if you would like to do so. If you have any other questions regarding safety and privacy, please email our Executive Director, Grace Schillewaert, at
