Literacy Source - A Community Learning Center
February 27, 2011

One day I was working with one of my computer tutoring students and was showing him the keyboard shortcuts for cut, copy and paste. When we were done with the lesson he exclaimed “This is great! Now I can go home and show my son how to do this.” He was obviously very happy to have mastered a skill that he could share with his son.

At this point that I realized that tutoring isn’t just about teaching the student new skills. It is about helping them gain confidence in their abilities. And in this case it was also about helping a father find common ground with his son.

For me, the tutoring program helps me to learn too. Every session teaches me something new about the people I am working with… what their needs are and how to help them succeed in our modern society. All-in-all, I find working here at Literacy Source to be very rewarding.
