Review for Learning And Tutoring Center Of East Austin, Austin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered at the Learning and Tutoring Center of East Austin in 2009 and return every year for a joyous, stimulating academic environment for our youngsters. As a tutor, my days are filled with reading and sharing the latest books with students or reviewing and proctoring math quizzes. The Center has proven to be a nurturing, warm haven that operates more like a family than a school. Projects and assignments indirectly prepare students for regular classwork and statewide exams. They’re so much fun, though, the students don’t realize they’re sharpening their skills for their next grade level.

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

...a thousand ways. As a tutor for two consecutive years, I look forward to participating in the daily activities and assignments at the Learning Center. I've seen the joy and excitement on the faces of these students and know the Center is truly making a difference. They make learning fun. While our schools suffer by focusing on "teaching the test," the Center focuses on real learning.

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

....tell the rest of the world how great the Center truly is. If I were Rick Perry, I would require every school district in the state to follow the curriculum and philosophy of the Learning and Tutoring Center of East Austin. The youngsters in the State of Texas would benefit enormously.

Role:  Volunteer & as a tutor and helped children with their reading and math assignments.
