Edwin is the perfect example of a bright student who came to TLC to build his confidence and connections in his literacy development. Edwin began his third grade year behind from the summer months, and he was largely unexcited by reading and writing. Nonetheless, through a combination of tutoring and enrichment programming, he quickly excelled in group and one-on-one settings. Edwin not only met his own personal goals, but exceeded them. By Spring, our staff were pulling fifth-grade level materials to fulfill Edwin's newfound, insatiable desire to read. Edwin's vocabulary, fluency, and accuracy skills improved dramatically, while his motivation and intellectual curiosity flourished. We are so proud of the gains we have seen from this now avid reader!
