Doing this class is like trying to hit a target on the wall with darts. You try to hit the target. You miss the bullseye. But you keep trying. It will pay off!

This class is like a family who learns together and supports each other. Sitting at a round table lends itself to a great learning experience, not only by the students, but the teacher as well.

Once your confidence builds up, you feel like you can do anything from that point on.

– Mr. W.

My life changed for the good since I’ve been to the Literacy Alliance. My math…my division…was a problem but now it’s not. I thank Mr. Ken for that.

I can’t tell you how excited I am about [my students’] accomplishments – it makes all of my efforts worthwhile! I love it!

Ms. B is a joy to work with. She calls me to tell me she is looking forward to our next meeting. She does not like to mess around and gets straight to work. She has some issues with consonant sounds and some different vowel pronunciations, but I am impressed with how solid of a reader she is and she can improve. I see it. She works hard. Also I feel so good doing this. I am glad I signed up.

J is more than my student, she is my friend. I enjoyed every hour that we spent together studying, catching up on our kids, work, and other fun stuff too! I appreciate her allowing me to help her in her educational journey!
