How did you decide to join LCN?
I asked the social worker at my house for help reading.

Were there challenges you had to overcome to get started?
It was hard to get started, I didn’t want to continue. With my tutor Dave, it’s better. He watches out for me.

What about working with your tutor has helped you succeed?
I got to know Dave, he’s somebody to talk to when you have problems.

What words would you use to describe what you’ve accomplished?
I can read 4- and 5- letter words now. Reading improves my head. I can read the words on the bus and on TV now.

Do you feel differently about yourself since you’ve begun working with your LCN tutor? If yes, in what way?
I feel a little bit better about myself.

Were there any unexpected benefits that came as a result of your participation in the tutoring program that surprised you?
I didn’t expect to hang in there that long.

What advice would you give other students who are starting to learn at LCN?
If you had a hard time reading, stick with it.

How would you describe yourself? Is there a name you would prefer we use when we share your story?
I’ve gone from being at a 1 to a 5 now.
