Tutor Sharon Jolie and Cameisha


“I met Cameisha in the Spring of 2018 when the Literacy Council started tutoring at the Chrysalis House for women. Cameisha wanted to work on improving her math skills overall, but early on I found her to be ready and willing to work on any problems I presented to her.  She always did “homework” during the week and was ready to have it checked the next week.

When my fall semester of classes began at AACC I had to relinquish my students at Chrysalis House to other tutors and found out later that Cameisha had been accepted into a college nursing program! Cameisha reached out to me and asked if I would be willing to continue tutoring her in math. I agreed and we have been working together almost every Tuesday all semester.

I look forward to my time with Cameisha on Tuesdays. If we don’t meet, I miss talking with her. She is such a positive person.  Her little one often sits with us and I see how motivated Cameisha is to be successful in her college pursuits but also in her role as mother. It’s a juggling act and she’s succeeding!”
