Review for Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I've volunteered for GPLC for about six years, steadily for the past 3 1/2, most recently tutoring a local man who started out reading at a first-grade level. He has slowly progressed, and aside from providing space for us to meet GPLC has been consistently helpful and responsive to requests for materials and other assistance, and proactive in offering additional help and promoting staff development.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the assistance it has rendered in materials, advice, curriculum-building and other support.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

can't think of anything I'd change

Role:  Volunteer & I do adult basic-literacy tutoring.
 

Review for Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I've been volunteering with GPLC for about four years, and matched with three native English-speaking adults, longest and most recently with a man in his 40s who has dyslexia and never learned to read. Over the past two and a half years we've met twice weekly and he's made slow but steady progress. GPLC provides the space for us to meet and has been helpful and responsive with requests for tutoring materials and other assistance.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing my students become more confident and capable in life as well as being better readers
