Holly, a kindergartener at our Southern Highlands location, took matters into her own hands this week when she grew impatient waiting for tutoring to begin and lead the other kindergarteners into the tutoring room early. Her explanation to her tutor was merely, “Sorry Ms. Elias, we just couldn’t help ourselves.” She and the others then proceeded to sit down and waited for their tutoring to begin. Holly’s mother says that Holly is always so excited to go to tutoring and so sad when she has to leave.
If through all our efforts and hard work we ended up inspiring this little girl and the other kindergarteners to the point where they get excited to learn, then our goal here at Andson is met, though our work is only just beginning!
This is our reward – when we see students not only learning and understanding their work, but also developing a passion for learning.
A few of our other Southern Highland students’ family members have also told us that their children are excelling in their school work.
Third grader Elliot’s mother said that she loves the tutoring program and that Elliot’s math grade has gone up tremendously.
Fifth grader Patrick’s grandfather says thank you Andson and that Patrick has learned to enjoy math and is continuously improving his math skills.
Fifth grader Marae’s mother says that Marae is always excited to go to tutoring and that she has not seen her daughter that excited to learn before.
Here’s to reaching out to even more students!
Who knows, maybe there’s a future teacher or two among these kiddos.
Now that would be awesome.
