Student Testimonials

"I love working with my tutor. She is so friendly and she always encourages me and reviews my homework carefully. She is very modest and keeps saying "You're doing all the work," but having her as my tutor is a big part of my progress. She motivates me to work harder and accomplish more."

"It is like someone turned on a light bulb. I can comprehend what I read."

"The people at Literacy Volunteers are friendly and they will help you. Don't be afraid to walk through their door. Do it for yourself, not for someone else."
