When students are better readers early on, they have a greater passion to learn in all aspects of life.

Recently retired from teaching, Beth was looking for a way to stay involved in her school community when she learned about Reading Corps. For Beth, it was an easy decision to become a tutor. “I love working with kids – it’s hard to walk away from that. Now I get to work with students that are struggling and continue to make a difference in the school.”

As a teacher, Beth’s main goal was to have a positive impact on her students’ lives. Now as a tutor, that hasn’t changed one bit. Her students bring excitement and happiness to her tutoring sessions – they just cannot wait to learn with her!
