Mildred's Progress

Mildred's Progress

One of the children I have had the privilege of working with in Grace's after school tutoring program is Mildred, pictured with her mother's permission.  Mildred is a bright girl who works hard every time she attends this ministry.

One area we work on is reading and writing English.  Mildred's parents help with math, but, since English is not their mother tongue, they cannot assist her like they want to with this subject.  Mildred does not let that stop her.  She challenges herself.  I was impressed the first day when she read aloud The Emperor's Egg.  This week she brought in a book entitled Hummingbirds that had an even more advanced vocabulary.  Mildred's hard work is paying off.  Last week she tested four reading levels higher instead of the expected three.

It is a great joy to work with Mildred.  She is what our tutoring program is all about.  If you would like to make a difference in the life of a young person, please contact me John Gibson.  We can serve more children like Mildred with your help.
