Finding a new sense of self
By: Jim Byrd, volunteer reading partner in Dallas, TX
Why do I tutor?…
After losing Mary, I lost all purpose and identity and felt a huge void in my life. I kept hearing and reading I needed to reach out and begin re-involving myself in the world but nothing seemed to fit. I remembered talking with several who tutored last year and found such satisfaction, I thought that may be a place for me to begin.
What a total blessing being a reading partner has been for me. I love working with the kids and watching their pleasure in learning. The curriculum instructions and tips are excellent, effective, and easy to apply. I enjoy being part of such an important program for these children.
