Review for READING WORKS INC, Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a tutor for Reading Works since it began. This is a wonderful organization, offering personalized tutoring in various aspects of adult literacy, and I know that as a result of our services, many lives have been changed for the better. When we have more literate individuals in our community, and more with their GED or more who have become fluent in English, we have a richer and stronger community. The lives of our volunteer tutors have also become richer through the opportunity to give back what others have so generously given us.

Review for READING WORKS INC, Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer tutor for Reading Works for three years. During this time I have been able to prepare a student to pass the GED, and am working with learning-disabled student, helping her to find meaning from what she reads. Reading Works provides generous support to volunteers and learners alike: For the tutors, in addition to a wide variety of teaching materials, it offers regular workshops and even individual advice when needed. For ESL students Reading Works hosts conversation groups to give them an opportunity to practice their new language skills. Learners on the waiting list for a regular tutor are provided interim tutoring to get the process started and to avoid the discouragement learners may feel while they're waiting for a permanent asignment. Reading Works has contributed greatly to our community and deserves all the support it can get!
