SOME, Inc. dba, So Others Might Eat
February 1, 2010

After 35 years, I retired from the practice of law and looked for a place to volunteer my services for people in need. I contacted SOME and was told that they were in need of a basic math tutor for their C.E.T. program. I told them I would be happy to give it a try. Four years later I am still tutoring two days a week, approximately 3 hours per session. I primarily tutor the trainees in the building maintenance program. For me this has been a particularly rewarding experience and based upon feedback from the trainees, I believe it has been equally rewarding for them. I have seen trainees learn or re-learn basic math skills which has permitted them to obtain rewarding employement and to become responsible citizens in the Washington, D. C. area.
