SMART
February 18, 2011

This is my second year being at tutor at SMART and it is by far my favorite time of the week. The staff at SMART are so dedicated and organized that tutoring is a breeze and so rewarding. I feel adequately trained and prepared to help my student succeed. Of course my student is wonderful, as are all the kids at SMART, and I really feel like I'm making an impact in her life. Not only do I love tutoring at SMART simply to help a child succeed but I've made great friends with the other tutors. SMART is a great place to volunteer and I can't speak highly enough of it.

The Great!

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

seeing my student succeed academically and personally. Watching her become a mature young lady who has a proud sense of self and is dedicated to her school work.

Ways to make it better...

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

make sure more people knew about it. Its a great place to volunteer. With a once a week commitment you can make a huge difference in the life of a child!
