The Carnegie Center is currently recruiting volunteer tutors for the one-on-one tutoring program for Fall 2022. Tutoring requires a one-hour-a-week commitment and hours are flexible. Tutors may select their schedule.

Learn, play, and make a difference in a child's life! Tutor matches are more important than ever- children have had limited access to learning and social interactions over the last 2 years. Tutoring helps a child re-build their confidence in learning and builds social skills which are crucial for success and overall well-being.

All tutors must be 16 years of age or older, if over 18 the volunteer must pass a background check. Orientations and trainings are available and every active tutor gets to take a free class at the Carnegie Center!


  • Tutors must be at least 16 years of age or older, and complete two background checks at no cost, one for Carnegie Center and one for the school.
  • Tutors are recruited on a rolling basis and are encouraged to stay with the same child for the duration of the school year for maximum impact.
  • Tutors are required to participate in an orientation where they will learn more about the program and best practices for tutoring.
  • The program relies on enthusiastic volunteer tutors who enjoy teaching and interacting with children. Tutors meet with the same child once a week for one hour.
  • Tutors are encouraged to communicate with the child’s parent/guardian to best tailor the sessions and report progress.


  • The tutoring team is here to help with all of your questions and concerns regarding virtual tutoring. We provide our tutors with quality resources to help make virtual learning more engaging for all parties.
  • Tutors are eligible to take one free class at the Carnegie Center for every season they tutor.
  • Tangible educational resources and materials are supplied to the tutor and tutee when possible (flashcards, books, games, and more) To register, or for more information, please contact Tutoring Director Carol Jordan at
