Student Update: Harvey
Tutor Chelsea Caspar and Harvey
Harvey, who lives with his wife in Davidsonville, has struggled with reading throughout his life. He had to leave school at age 15 to work and help support his family. More than 50 years later, Harvey sought help from the Literacy Council so he could more confidently handle the paperwork associated with his job installing power lines.
Chelsea Caspar has been tutoring Harvey since March of 2014 and is pleased to report he has made good progress with his reading and writing skills. Harvey has read his first book…ever, and is currently writing short stories! Harvey is also more confident filling out paperwork and conversing with his supervisors, and can now understand the reports which are required reading for his job.
