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.
Literacy Council Tutor Visits Student’s Family in Mexico
The bond between a tutor and student can grow very strong- and sometimes stretch for thousands of miles. ESOL tutor Steve Hopkins recently traveled to Mexico with his wife, and spent a day with the family of his LCBC student, Dulce Rivera. Steve and Dulce have been working together for over four years to improve Dulce’s English and to enable her to support her children’s education. Steve has become very close with Dulce and the children, and has often helped them with their homework in addition to tutoring Dulce.
