I have been volunteering for almost 20 years. In the last few years I have been looking to do something on a more personal level. I heard about AACLC but hadn't made it to one of their training classes until Fall of 2011. The training course was very interesting and not long after completing the training, I received several dossiers for people who needed tutoring. Once case in particular captured me, a man who wanted to improve his reading skills so he could read to his daughter. Unfortunately, there are more students that tutors, so he waited for quite some time before I got his case. So long in fact that his daughter was now a teenage and not really interested in "dad" time. But my student still wanted to work on his skills. So, for the last year, we have meet almost weekly to work on improving his reading, comprehension and writing. He has made wonderful progress. So much progress that his supervisor noticed his increased efforts at reading work manuals and complimented him on his efforts! My student was extremely proud of himself! And he continues to meet regularly with me to continue his journey into the great world of words!
