Student and Volunteer Success Stories

My name is Beris and my tutors is Danielle. She made me get my driver's license. I tried 30 times before I passed and 27 were before I met Danielle. We practiced every night and I finally understood. My tutor taught me to answer 10 questions at a time and I did the same thing for the driver's test. I passed! It was a good feeling.

With Danielle's help I found a new job at the local hospital. I am doing so good with the words for my job; my tutor teaches me and I practice. I have two jobs and I am doing much better than before. Without this program I would not have my tutor and would not have been able to get my driver's license or a better job. I appreciate everything!

My name is Carlos and I am from El Salvador. I have been here in the United States for several years with my family and I have been working as a barber. I like my job. I have been learning English with my tutor from Literacy Volunteers for 3 years.

This year I got my U.S. Citizenship and I have learned to read better and I am now able to attend the local community college for English classes. My dream is to improve my reading and writing of English. I need to communicate more easily.

I appreciate all the people who help me!
