Review for Anne Arundel County Literacy Council, Inc., Annapolis, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When people ask me about myself, one of the first things I tell them that besides being a wife and mother, I'm a volunteer for the Anne Arundel County Literacy Council. This organization is such a big part of my life. I tutor one on one with adults who want to improve their English and I've also taught Math and Basic Literacy to students where English is their first language. As I meet with my students each week I can see their self confidence grow. They are engaging more in their communities and making them stronger. Parents who read tend to have children who read so the Literacy Council is helping to make long terms improvements in families here in Anne Arundel County. All training, books and assessments are provided free and since the tutoring is done on an individual basis you can be flexible on when and where you meet with your student. I'm not a teacher by trade, I'm a teacher by heart and am so glad I decided to do this.
