One to One Reading


Last week I had a bit of a role reversal; I had the opportunity to be a student and sit in on a classroom session for our One to One Reading Program.  This program trains volunteer tutors to read with students who may be struggling with their reading.  It was exciting to see people of all ages come together to learn how to make a difference in a child's life.  Even more exciting is that we get to implement this program right here at Youlearn!  You're never too old to learn something new, and sharing what you learn with someone else is a true gift.  Keep learning and sharing!

  1. Hi Sonia, It is so cool that this program can be administered face-to-face or on-line through Skpe! Either way the key is consistent practice, commitment from the student and tutor and lots of positive feedback for the student. The tutors' enthusiasm, energy and eagerness was evident! What a great opportunity to partake in this reading program. The fact that the One to One program has been operating since 1989 speaks to its success!
