Foster Parent - Since starting tutoring I have noticed that S.’s ability to confidently and accurately use basic math skills like adding and skip counting has increased significantly. She has also memorized a couple of random multiplication facts, and seems to comprehend what they mean which was a level of understanding she was struggling with before. In such a short period of time, taxes heartwarming progress to see.
CPS Case Worker - You all are doing an amazing job and we really appreciate all of your help with these kids. Thank you so very much!
Student - "Ever since I have started with the program I have been able to get caught up on my work more, and I have been able to understand my work. Not just the WHIT Program but my tutor has been amazing at helping me, and even if I have a lot of work she's willing to stay late and help me, and I really appreciate that. "
Tutor - I was honored to have the opportunity to watch D. rise above her circumstances. In the past, her circumstances have controlled her, but in those moments as she completed her final assignments, I watched as she began to realize that her choices were in her control, regardless of the circumstances and situation My experience tutoring D has changed the way I view myself and those around me. I am thankful for the privilege I experienced in my childhood and I have gained a new respect for others who have had to fight for the things I was given. In life, things happen. We can't control our circumstances, we can't control others' actions and we can't control others' perceptions. What we can control is our character, who we choose to be and how we choose to live. Our choices and our character remain in our control no matter what the circumstances may be.
