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.

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.

Role:  Volunteer & I tutored adult English speakers who wanted to improve their reading skills.
