Washington School, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 200

“A little girl I’ve been tutoring came to me unable to do anything more than scribble all over her paper. She knew the alphabet song but not her alphabet. I have watched her develop and grow. You can’t imagine the pride I have in her accomplishments, not because I did it, but because I know how hard she has worked to get to this point. To see the happiness and pride on her face as she recognizes all the letters, upper and lower case, to listen to her as she attemptto read a book, to see her write her name fills me with a satisfaction that only those who have tutored before can truly understand.” Belinda Cousins, Philadelphia
