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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been tutoring with the LHCC after school homework helper Study Buddies South Charlotte as part of a group from Hands On Charlotte. Tuesday nights are the highlight of my week. I have not missed a session in the two years I have volunteered there.

The kids are awesome and it helps me keep my brain challenged. Have you tried doing 4th grade math lately? They are doing things we did not do until high school.

The LHCC volunteers who we work with are wonderful people. Each week is a different experience,. What separates this group from other tutoring groups is that they are also involved with the kids families trying to facilitate the parents interaction with their children's school and teachers ; and encouraging them to read with their kids every night.

We are just with them on night a week. It is our function to be a catalyst to encourage them to make reading and developing their math skills a part of their lives all week. We also encourage the kids to engage in critical thinking and to become responsible for their actions. Ultimately it is the kids themselves who have to make the effort every day to learn and grow.
