My name is Susan and I completed the tutor training in May, 2015. I was interested in becoming more involved in helping new immigrants to succeed in our community. I heard about Literacy Volunteers by word of mouth and have enjoyed my experience in every way. I meet with my student every week – we play games, work with flash cards and mainly, I encourage my student, Melba, to speak English! We even talk on the phone twice a week because Melba is afraid to talk on the phone. I also volunteer in the Literacy Volunteers’ main office once a week. This experience is so meaningful for me and I’m not sure who gets more out of it.
