Tutor Travels with her Student to Visit Student’s Family and Home Country
Victoria Rose, a tutor with the Literacy Council, traveled to Mexico over the summer with her student Carmen. Here is what Victoria has to say about her experience.
Elena Zinchenko – Star ESOL Student
Elena Zinchenko is our star ESOL student this year! A 35-year-old woman from southern Russia, she came to us in 2008 as a Low Beginner. In six years she has attended 450 hours of instruction through the Literacy Council – with individual tutors and in small groups- while also attending ESL classes at AB Tech.
Jesus, Alma’s eldest son, arrived second. A gentle soul, he quietly completed intake testing with his tutor, Mary Miller. Just the mention of his name brings a smile to her face. She says, “Jesus enjoys all the aspects of the Augustine Project® lessons. He loves the phonics games and is quick to laugh. He is a curious learner.”
The Augustine Project helps many children each year get the skills they need to succeed. Volunteers with the Augustine Project make a real difference in the lives of real people.
