Meet Our Volunteers
“Tutoring Scotty is one of the most selfish things I do. We have had days where one (or both) of us were tired or grumpy, and somehow we always leave feeling better. My kids also love coming with me, so I get to see them be loving, patient, and helpful. I like knowing that this thing that is so fun for me, is also helping out this awesome guy.” – Abbie
“It’s incredibly refreshing to work with Byron who is always happy to see me, always puts in a great effort, writes neatly, sticks with it when an assignment is challenging, and just shows me what’s possible.” – John
“I have realized giving an hour of your time weekly is not that large of a sacrifice. Some weeks, I think I get more out of tutoring than Emily does. Being a tutor is incredibly rewarding and a great way to build a new relationship. Please don’t be intimidated by the title, ’tutor’. This is a relationship with someone you can look to as a peer and work on simple skills with.” – McKenna
