Annika’s Experience with Reading Partners

This year I volunteered with Reading Partners ( http://readingpartners.org )at PS 188 for the third year and I had a really great experience. I have really enjoyed working with the students and seeing them improve over the course of the year. I worked primarily with a six year old student named Guadalupe who went from barely knowing the alphabet to reading short stories over the course of the school year. Reading Partners creates a fun learning environment for struggling students to improve their reading and comprehension skills, and the students seem to genuinely enjoy it. I look forward to tutoring with Reading Partners again next year!

This year I tutored at Reading Partners (http://readingpartners.org) at PS 188 The Island School. My experience with Reading Partners taught me the importance of offering help to those in need for no charge and I am thankful to have been apart of this program. I tutored several first and second graders weekly over the course of the year and it was highly rewarding to see their progress over time. As a young student, I dreaded reading and viewed it as a chore and a task that just had to be completed, so I feel that it’s my duty to make reading an exciting and enjoyable experience for struggling beginners. I’m proud of what the students that I have worked with have learned this year and I hope to continue my volunteer work with Reading Partners in the future.
