Review for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was proudly given a little at Pine Villa Elementary. At first I noticed my Little was 11 years old and in the 2nd grade. I quickly started working with her on her reading. We read a different book every time I met with her, which was about once a week for approximetly an hour. Her reading Improved dramatically. She quickly started moving up on her reading grade level within a few months. By the end of the year she was above her grade level in the FCAT. I also noticed my littles grades were not accepatble her first grading period. She had D's and F's in both her class and conduct. She also had 2's and 3's in effort. By her next grading period she gradually started improving. By her 4th and final report card she obtained A's and B;s and 1's in effort. I am very proud to be a big sister. I really enjoyed every minute of it and wouldn't change the program for the world!
