Thomas Armstrong and Tutor Priscilla Gray
I have a wonderful student. Thomas is motivated and enthusiastic, and there is no question in my mind that he wants to improve his reading. His enthusiasm is what keeps me motivated. I feel that the teaching resources provided to us by the Literacy Council, along with the support and guidance-which is just a phone call away-provides the tools needed to keep his classes interesting.
I found the tutor training instruction to be very well thought out and presented clearly and effectively, especially when you consider the broad spectrum of clients that are served.
During the follow-up session we each shared our experiences to date. It was both interesting and helpful to hear first-hand from other volunteers the pluses and minuses of their tutoring sessions. And we were provided the opportunity for additional coaching. I find the Council to be very committed, energetic and eager to help move us along in our progress with our clients.
I am very pleased with the program. It is much more than I expected. I admire the staff and the dedicated volunteers who have worked together, literally for years, to make this program what it is today. I would be happy to tell anyone interested in volunteering to come and see for yourself if this would be a good fit for you. I am very happy to be a part of this wonderful organization.
