My name is Pam and I am an after school tutor at the Boys and Girls Club through the Andson Organization. One of the students that I have been tutoring since this past fall is a young gentleman named, Kamar. He has had many challenges and changes that have made a difference. Through the consistency of this tutoring program, he has made great strides in school, tutoring, and sports. He is now is building a positive self-concept. Here at the club, the coaches, family members, and tutors work as a team to help further develop the self-esteem, talents, and academic potential of these boys and girls. We are pleased to see such a difference in these students as the year continues.
Janiya is another one of our students in the 3-4 grade levels that we tutor. She is a young lady who has greatly benefited from the Andson tutoring program. In the fall, her attitude toward learning was negative, she didn't believe that she could attain good grades. She has completely turned around. Her attitude is pleasant and she is willing to now put forth more effort in school, homework, and tutoring activities. She has become a model for others to follow. It is very fulfilling to know that the tutors that work here through the Andson Organization, DO make a difference in the lives of students.
These stories are the ones that make us proud of what we do at Andson. Many children are getting the encouragement and confidence to improve not just in school but in life. Of course, we cannot do it without the amazing teachers who are there daily. Thank you so much! Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
