Review for Learning Help Centers Of Charlotte, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is a privilege to work with an organization that helps not only children who are displaced from their native countries, but also with their parents. So many times we've watched both child and parent rejoice in the progress their child has made during a tutoring session!

LHCC is unique in that they begin working with preK children so that they are reading ready as well as working with elementary students to help them be ready for the demands of upper grades.

I worked with B**** for 4 years now and have seen her go from 1st grader who could not read to a 5th grader who can read and comprehend not only literature, but also directions and word problems. She's become a self-starter and an encourager to other children.

LHCC is helping so many who would drop through the cracks due to language and cultural barriers. Charlotte - Mecklenburg is fortunate to have an organization that works to help parents raise responsible, competent citizens!

Review for Learning Help Centers Of Charlotte, Charlotte, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been blessed to work with B, a bright, eager to learn, little girl who loves to read. Our relationship serves as a wonderful example of how valuable timely interventions can be. B’s main challenge was that she could not answer questions about what she read. She was just sounding out words or guessing them based on the pictures in the book (quite clever of her), and frequently her pronunciation was incorrect. Yet, she’d persevere, desperately wanting to learn and to please her teachers.
Her difficulties were being blamed on the fact that English was her second language. After working with B for a few months, I suspected that further intervention was needed. LHCC came alongside her mother to help her get speech therapy for B through the school system. Her pronunciation is improving which is also helping her differentiate between similar sounding words! As she has been exposed to more literature and to field trips through LHCC, her ability to relate to what she is reading has expanded, also.
She is currently on grade level and her confidence is soaring. What a privilege it is to work with this beautiful little girl and begin to see the fruits of our labors. B has a distance to go, and I am so grateful that I get to continue her journey with her!
