The Carnegie Center is currently recruiting volunteer tutors for the one-on-one tutoring program for school year 2021-2022. Tutors may choose to tutor in-person at the Carnegie Center, or be matched with a child for virtual instruction. Tutoring requires a one-hour-a-week commitment and hours are flexible. Tutors may select their preferred grade level and 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 16 months. 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 tutor get to take a free class at the Carnegie Center!

*If tutor and tutee choose to meet at the Carnegie Center, tutoring will be spaced out in well-ventilated areas. All parties will be required to wear a facial covering.


  • 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 must have access to a computer or electronic device, with a free Zoom or Skype account and reliable internet.
  • The program operates from September 2021- May 2022. 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 a virtual orientation where they will learn more about the program and best practices for tutoring virtually.
  • 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.
  • Optional Zoom trainings are provided.
  • Tutors are eligible to take one free virtual 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
