Rosalyn and her tutor Lynette DelPrete

Rosalyn came to the Literacy Council after struggling with the writing requirements for her GED prep course at the community college. Refusing to give up and determined to succeed, Rosalyn discovered the Literacy council while doing a search for “reading tutors” on the internet. She contacted the Literacy Council and a reading assessment was scheduled. Rosalyn tested at a Laubach 4 reading level and was then matched with tutor Lynette DelPrete.

Since their first session last May, Lynette knew she was working with a focused, hard-working student who was not afraid to use all of the resources available to accomplish her goal. Rosalyn arrives early to every session, completes extra homework, and researches grammar, sentence structure and writing tips on the internet. She does all of this in addition to her busy personal schedule.

Rosalyn is very grateful for the help she receives from Lynette and the Literacy Council. When she is not in tutoring sessions or practicing reading and writing at home, Rosalyn spends time with her husband of 23 years, her four daughters and her 8 grandchildren. She also works full-time as a stock person at Walmart and is active in her church. With Rosalyn’s continued hard work and ability to use all of the resources available to her, Lynette has no doubt that she will attain her goal of earning her GED very soon.
