Volunteering as a tutor for the Literacy Council of Chelan and Douglas Counties has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me. First of all, they gave me a free tutor training so I felt prepared and confident to tutor ESL. When new students joined my class, the Lit. Co. staff introduced them to me and helped break the ice, then they helped me with my first lessons. They also provided me with a classroom and all the resources I needed to teach lessons. I look forward to my classes every week. I got to know my students fairly well, and I take a lot of pride in their achievements. They're very happy with their lessons, and we always have fun in class. I know I'll be volunteering with the Literacy Council for a long time to come.
