Our goal is to reward tutored students with a book each month. Also, at the close of school and at the holiday break, each student in a class where a tutor works receives a book (even those tutors who do not receive tutoring). Here are some comments from the students & teachers:
- In a 6th grade class, I had been working with a boy on multiplication and/division of decimals. He was doing pretty well, but has a speech defect. So I occasionally didn’t understand him, but he read me a word problem and gleefully announced, “I know EXACTLY what to do!” - and he did. In fact, the teacher decided he no longer needed to come to me and switched me to a different student for the next session.
- Thank you for bringing in books for us to read. We really appreciate it, because it is always nice to have a good book to read. So thank you very much.” Sydney
