Student progress comments:

AACLC tutors submit volunteer hours and student progress reports each month. Here are some of the student progress comments received for the month of July:

“Lois is a joy to teach – she is so motivated and is interested in everything! When we came across the composer Mozart in one of the lessons, she said she had heard the name before but had mispronounced it. I asked her if she ever heard any of his music and she hadn’t. She watches things on YouTube a lot, so I sent her a link to a performance of one of the best known little pieces – she listened to it and liked it. Today she told me that she learns something new every time we meet and she just checked out another book from the library.”

Diana Campe

“Gwen got a library card for the first time during one of our sessions. She then later brought her thirteen-year-old grandson to the library to get a library card. The librarian gave them both a tour and Gwen’s grandson took out a book that interested him. I am so proud of Gwen for passing her love for reading on to her grandchildren!”

Mary Anne Stoner

“Robert is making slow but measurable progress. When I first met him he could only perform operations on whole numbers. He has learned how to work with fractions and negative numbers, to solve linear equations, basic word problems, and graph points.”

Eveline Robbins

“Mary is very enthusiastic and committed to learning. Lessons are going well.”

Cecilia Thompson

“My student is very bright and a joy to work with. She is a client at Chrysalis House and by order of the court must get her GED to leave. She has completed Breakthrough To Math Level 1.”

Susann Felton

“Cameisha was accepted into college! She is leaving Chrysalis House but may want to continue tutoring as she begins coursework.”

Sharon Jolie

“Iris is taking classes in basic education at Anne Arundel Community College now.”

Bob Stoner

“Tony wants to gain employment. I totally enjoy working with him and hope to assist with reaching his goals. He is an attentive student and seems to enjoy our time together.”

Sheila Savannah

“Each session moves slowly, but my student is a trooper! She keeps trying and that is very encouraging. She says she enjoys our sessions and thinks it is fun even though it is difficult for her.”

Rosemary Council

“Mia passed her Phlebotomy test and received her certification at the end of July! Aside from working on reading comprehension, Mia has been learning different ways to study to help her retain information.”

Adele Grullon-Knupp

“I had another good session with my student yesterday. He now ‘gets’ that our reading sessions (a) help him to read better, but also (b) allow him to discover new stuff about life that he was clueless about. My new goal is to get him to request the next reading session – which he did! He understands that improved reading is a ticket to a better job. He doesn’t really like his current job but he needs the money, so works hard.”
