Success Stories Like These...
Stories like these are what keep us enthusiastic about Augustine and what it accomplishes. What is also amazing about this experience is that while your student changes, at the same time you will grow and develop in ways you didn't think possible. Read on to see why you should "Tutor One Child and Change Two Lives!"
"As an Augustine tutor, I have had the pleasure of watching a six year old first grader learn and grow with her literacy skills this year. With English as her second language and her home life not ideal (living in a motel), she has settled in to make progress despite these challenges. I began to work with her in November when her skills were at a Kindergarten level, and she needed to develop basic literacy skills such as rhyming and sound awareness. Through the weeks of lessons, she has now acquired those skills and is confident with blending sounds, learning new words, and reading basic sentences. The school would like to retain her in first grade next year so that she may better meet first grade expectations and become a more competent reader and writer before advancing to second grade. I look forward to continuing tutoring her next year and watching her develop into that competent reader and writer."

And from another tutor...
Hey -- one success story for you! My student, whom I've tutored 3 years, scored at "met" [grade level expectations] on all subjects of the PASS test this past spring except for Science. That means she scored "met" on both reading/ELA AND on writing!!!!
