Student and Volunteer Success Stories

"I was a good worker and was soon promoted to supervisor. The problem was with all of the new paperwork. I couldn't pass the required monthly safety exams, and I couldn't write someone up for disciplinary actions. I was afraid to send my boss e-mails because I couldn't spell well. All of that changed with the help of my tutor. My office is lined with certificates from classes I've passed, and I don't hesitate to write anyone up. This has helped me so much." ~ Wilbur S.
