My name is Darrelyn and I have been a tutor for almost a year and a half. I have always wanted to be a Literacy Volunteer and a few years ago, I finally had the time to devote to it. I did not have any teaching experience before this, but the training program and the support that is available gave me the confidence to become a tutor. I meet with Ban, my student, every week and we work on speaking, reading and comprehension, listening skills using different strategies. Ban has made great progress and she is a motivated and enthusiastic learner. This experience has been so meaningful and rewarding for me. Ban is my student but also has become a friend. She has taught me many things about her culture and country. She is a wonderful cook and has spoiled me and my family with many delicious dishes!
