A story about one ATC volunteer’s tutoring experience:
“I was assigned to tutor a kindergarten student at Maury last year. At the first meeting I was astonished to find that he might know a sing-song “ABCs” but he did not have one bit of letter recognition. I had difficulty grasping that he did not know the alphabet. Well, we dug in. Through twice and sometimes three meetings each week through the end of the school year, he not only got his letters, he recognized words, began to sound things out, and by the end of the year he was reading at the same (and maybe slightly ahead) level as his classmates. That experience was extremely critical for him and gratifying for me.”
