School Year Tutoring program

School year tutoring registrations have begun! If you are interested in signing up your student (Kindergarten-12th grade only), please stop by the front desk or give us a call to fill out an inquiry form.

Here's how it works:
For those of you that were a part of the summer tutoring program, please note that the school year program is much more formal one-on-one tutoring, and therefore a few more steps in the process. First, Fatimah Shalash, the current tutoring coordinator for the '08-'09 school year, will be contacting you after receiving your inquiry to set up an intake meeting. Be patient, as it may take a couple of days to get back in touch with you due to to the large number of inquiries. Next, you and your student are required to attend an intake meeting with Fatimah, where a formal assessment will be done of the student, all of the paperwork filled out, and possible tutoring times discussed. Based on your meeting, Fatimah will go to our pool of tutors to match your student up with the best tutor match possible, during the times that you have available. Remember, that the more times you give as options, the more quickly that you can be matched. The entire process tends to take 3-4 weeks.

Here are the slots available in case you need to check your schedule.
School year tutoring time possibilities:
M-Th 3-7 pm, FR 3-5 pm, Sat 10-2 pm

Please let us know if you have further questions!

Also, a special thanks to Becky Plas who just completed one year of Americorps VISTA service at the Carnegie Center as our tutoring coordinator. Good luck in Hawaii, Becky! We miss you already!


PS. It's good to be back on the blog! I enjoyed my first anniversary trip to Blackberry Farm very much, but it's great to come home, too!
