New Job!

This story was submitted by James’ tutor. ┬áThe names have been changed to protect privacy.

James was asked to apply for a job, which he would not do, preferring to keep his current job rather than risk completing an application. An additional 5 months went by, and the company asked him again to apply. Confident with his increased literacy skills and encouraged by his tutor, Susan, James interviewed for the job. He is happy in his new position!


I began tutoring in 2006. Since that time I have tutored three different learners. Each came from a different country and culture. Each had different skills and needs in the English language. Each had a unique story. The one thing that they had in common was a strong desire to improve themselves.

My life is much richer because I have had the opportunity to tutor and I know that my learners always teach me more than I teach them.
