Keith and Mr. Jackson are the PERFECT example that tutors don’t just teach kids to read, they teach them to LOVE reading! Mr. Jackson created fun games from curriculum resources that kept Keith engaged. Keith made 9 months of progress after just four months of tutoring. Now he loves to read chapter books!

Asleen Griffin met Shirley at an in-service training. They quickly hit it off and started to carpool together. When Shirley was no longer able to volunteer because of health concerns, Asleen stepped in to serve as her companion. Asleen has other clients but makes sure to visit Shirley 3 to 4 times a week. They spend time playing BINGO, doing word searches, and talking about the good times. These two aren’t just companions, they aren’t just friends, they’re family.
