Carnegie Learning, a leader in K-12 education innovation, high-quality products and services, and AI, announced today that the company has added new multilingual and bilingual certified math and literacy instructors to the high-dosage tutoring team in Gadsden County, New Mexico, to meet the needs of students in the state’s fourth-largest school district.
“It’s gratifying to see improvements in student proficiency and attendance as well as increasing parent participation in the Gadsden Independent School District (ISD),” said Courtney Lewis, Vice President of Tutoring Services at Carnegie Learning. “The results are impressive. We have been able to fulfill 100% of the requests from students and families in Gadsden ISD who requested a bilingual tutor. We’ve also appointed a bilingual tutor as a liaison to answer questions from families in their native language. Families have a direct dial number to call the liaison directly for support.”
Lewis recently presented a webinar on how to partner with a high-dosage tutoring provider to launch an effective summer school program, which can be accessed here.
Demand for high-dosage tutoring is growing among students in all grades at Gadsden ISD, led by elementary-age students, who are reaping the benefits of one-on-one and small-group tutoring. To meet the needs of the district, Carnegie Learning is expanding their offerings in Gadsden ISD with new K-12 math and literacy, SAT and PSAT preparation to their portfolio of services.
Students and their families are already feeling the impact of tutoring. A third-grade student expressed delight about their tutor, who is a certified teacher like all Carnegie Learning tutors: “I have the best teacher ever!” A kindergarten parent commented that a tutor demonstrated dedication consistently: “She did awesome with our son!”
Personalizing tutoring services to meet the needs of Gadsden ISD reflects Carnegie Learning's commitment to partnering with districts and ability to flexibly develop solutions for emerging challenges. In fact, their national high-dosage tutoring services originated when Maryland district Prince George's County Public Schools approached Carnegie Learning with a need for remote tutoring in 2020 during school closures, and Carnegie Learning built a tutoring team from scratch.
Carnegie Learning has the largest certified tutoring team in the U.S., with an ever-increasing portfolio of new curriculum offerings being added as district needs arise.
Carnegie Learning's high-dosage tutoring services include:
• Live tutors who are all certified teachers with deep content and pedagogical knowledge.
• Bilingual and multilingual tutors are available.
• Instruction that aligns with districts’ standards, scope, and sequence.
• Standards-aligned, high-quality instructional materials to support grade-level learning.
• Robust pre- and post-assessments to regularly track student growth and performance.
Carnegie Learning believes that students can reach far beyond their perceived potential, academically as well as socially and emotionally. To help students achieve this, they strive to bridge the gap between access to high-quality instructors, award-winning AI software, and high-quality instructional resources.

This new program is designed to help learners master the leading accounting software for small businesses and prepare for the QuickBooks Certification exam. Intuit will provide the program at no cost to students from its Prosperity Hub School Districts.
QuickBooks expertise is in high demand, particularly among small businesses that are continuing to hire workers at an aggressive clip—according to Lightcast, there were over 186,000 job postings seeking "QuickBooks" as a skill in 2022. By gaining this QuickBooks skill, learners on edX are going to be able to join the small business economy. In addition to course access, learners who enroll in the program will get a 12-month free trial of QuickBooks Plus. Learners who complete the Professional Certificate program on edX will earn a valuable, standalone credential that showcases knowledge and skills. These programs add to edX's catalog of more than 4,200 online learning experiences developed in partnership with the world's top universities and corporations, from free courses to full degrees.
"Through this partnership, Intuit and edX will arm job seekers with one of the most in-demand skills and help close a significant talent gap in the market," said David Zasada, VP of Intuit Corporate Responsibility. "At the same time, we'll be making it possible for anyone, including those most in need, to easily access the same tools needed to become a QuickBooks ProAdvisor."
Intuit will offer QuickBooks Certification exam vouchers to students in their Prosperity Hub School Districts. This program provides course content and teacher professional development, as well as programs from our strategic partners, to underrepresented school districts that are most in need.
