Success Stories




“I want to get my goals to be a better reader. Tutoring is helping me because I didn’t think I was good at main idea, but now I am.” 


Chillicothe Elementary School 

“I love my tutor. She knows me and what I need.” 

Krishona L

Peoria Glen Oak Elementary

“I love the educational games that we play, reading books, and I love the rewards for doing a good job. I think tutoring is helping me because I am learning to read better and I'm making better grades." 

ZaKaria H

Peoria Sterling Middle School

"I feel like tutoring is helping me because the games, reading out loud, and the phonics book all help me. I have learned about what verbs to use, rhyming words, suffixes, prefixes, contractions, and a lot of other things." 


Peoria Franklin Elementary

"I feel good about tutoring because I learn stuff. It's helping me with my tests because I have time to study and its helping me with math because I have time to practice."


Riverview Elementary



“I see little moments when something we are doing “clicks” with the students and it gives them a better understanding of their reading. This gives them a boost of confidence in helping themselves become better readers!” 

Lisa Milliken

Region 3 Tutor | Chillicothe Elementary School 

"I am a retired teacher and this job is perfect for me. I am able to use my years of experience in the classroom to continue making a difference in children's lives. The support from our region coordinator and administration has been wonderful. If I need anything I can call, and they are willing to assist me.” 

Eymarde Lawler

Region 3 Tutor | Peoria Glen Oak Elementary 

“We are definitely seeing results in test scores and overall confidence during our practice sessions. I also like that students reflect with us after each lesson. It helps me see what kind of learning style they have and what is working.” 

Amy Russell

Region 3 Tutor | Marquette Elementary 

“I like seeing the spark in children’s eyes when they understand a concept or achieve fluency in a particular area! I have one student who is now more confident and is more willing to try the “hard stuff”. I am thankful for the team of educators, administrators, and other tutors who are committed to providing support to these children.” 

Allison Nix

Region 3 Tutor | Marquette Elementary 

“My students catch on quickly! They remember my quirky sayings like “Mr. Silent E” and use tools like “The cover up method” when sounding out words. Now my quiet, shy, kids are eager to read aloud. It’s awesome!”
