Review for Rolling Readers Space Coast, Melbourne, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became a volunteer for Rolling Readers Space Coast, Inc. in 2009. I was a tutor for their one-on-one 2nd Grade Reading Skills Program. I worked with four (4) students who needed just a little more one-on-one time to improve their reading proficiency. I was thrilled when each student began to improve in the areas of comprehension and fluency and achieved their reading goals. One student, in particular, whose first language was not English, began to really blossom. Seeing them all move on to 3rd grade with renewed confidence in themselves as proficient readers was a joy! I love this organization so much that when they asked me to come work for them as part of a grant during 2010-11, I accepted. The grant has since expired, and I am still here as a part-time Program Coordinator, helping to schedule volunteers for all three of our programs, with a focus on the one-on-one program I used to do, and our 3rd Grade, Grade-Level Reading Intervention Program.

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

witnessing first-hand how individualized attention can help students become more proficient readers.

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

find a way to get the word out better so that more volunteers would become involved.
