Tutor a child. Make a difference!
Enthusiastic and dedicated tutors needed to share their love for learning with elementary age students. This after-school tutoring program meets once a week at Title I Fayette County public elementary schools in the fall and spring semesters. The clubs offer one-on-one homework help as well as fun, interactive games that support individual learning goals. Join us for a fun semester of learning with your new scholar!

- This is a semester-long commitment but we encourage tutors to stay with the same child for the entire school year if their schedule allows.
- Tutor recruitment is on a rolling basis- we have students waiting for YOU!
- You may tutor according to subject preference, but it is not always a guarantee.
- The coordinator will supervise the tutoring sessions, and provide all materials and activities.
- All tutors are allowed to take 1 free class at the Carnegie Center per season.
