I have been a tutor with the Good Samaritan Readers Program for five years, and a tutor with Emily for three.
When we first started, she had a hard time sounding out words. Now she has finished learning 1,000 sight-words, reads fluently with comprehension, and is expanding her reading material to include chapter books, magazines, and nonfiction. I have loved my experience of being a GSR tutor. To help expand a young mind, to introduce new books, and to help cultivate their imagination is a fantastic experience.
