I’ve been a volunteer tutor for All Saints Literacy for the past two years and find it rewarding in every way.  All Saints is a well-run organization with a valuable mission and fantastic staff to make that vision a reality.  For the first year, my learner and I met at the building in Detroit, but now our weekly sessions have shifted to Zoom format.  The change has been smooth, flexible, and allows a further level of personal sharing from the comfort of our homes.  My student’s commitment and resilience are outstanding and helping to build her self-confidence in reading, conversation, and other basic skills is fulfilling.  Teaching is always a two-way process so, through my student, I’ve learned a lot about their culture too.
