My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for BUILD, Redwood City, CA, USA
I've served as an academic mentor at BUILD for a little over two full
school years now, and primarily tutor mathematics and physics. It's great to play even a small role in helping students out who might not otherwise have that extra bit of guidance.
However, as I enjoy the subjects that I'm helping out with, I feel that I get as much out of the interactions as the students do, and hope that I can pass along some of my enthusiasm for these subjects.
I have also found that BUILD students are very capable of adult behavior and interaction. I'm always impressed at their level of dedication, preparation, and diligence.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the ability to make an impact, however minor, on a student's path towards academic success, and also offering a way for me to contribute to a very worthwhile cause.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
upgrade the furniture :)
