Students of the Month – December 2016

Online Tutoring:

Nate, School on Wheels Student of the Month

“Nate (5th Grade) loves art and he also knows that he needs to work on his math skills. So, I thought, let’s combine the two! We’ve worked together on coloring sheets: for every part of a drawing he colored, we worked on a math problem. One hour, once a week, for 2 months. Nate has gone from struggling to add to mastering his times tables. Even on days when he feels overwhelmed, Nate never gives up. It has been a joy to work with him.” – Ian Chan – Online Tutor

 

Skid Row Learning Center:

Lily, School on Wheels Student of the Month

Lily (Kindergarten) is one of the sweetest, funniest, most precocious kindergarteners you’ll ever meet. Every day Lily comes in joyful and ready to learn. Her willingness to complete her homework and her commitment to excellence are a sight to see!

 

 

Region 4 – Long Beach, South Bay Cities:

Aliyah, School on Wheels Student of the Month

“Aliyah is an amazing kindergartner. I ask her every session if there is anything she wants to work on (besides her coloring skills) and was surprised when she wanted to learn the Pledge of Allegiance. It makes sense as she is new to school, but I’ve never had that request before and it shows how seriously Aliyah takes her role as student. I look forward to our sessions together and wonder how she will amaze me next week. Thank you, School on Wheels, for this opportunity!” – Sheryl Luttrell, Tutor

 

Region 7 – San Fernando Valley:

Jadelynn, School on Wheels Student of the Month

Jadelynn (4th Grade) is a sweet fourth grader with a lot of potential. She is very funny, intelligent, competitive and creative. She has a lot of energy and shows a great passion for learning. Her goal for the future is to become a teacher at the elementary school that she attends. – Maya McKeever, Tutor

 

Region 8 – Ventura County:

Bobbie, School on Wheels Student of the Month

Bobbie (6th Grade) – “When not doing homework, Bobbie enjoys dancing — specifically hip-hop and ballet — and hopes to become a choreographer. As an avid reader, Bobbie has become a fairly good speller and will be competing in the local spelling bee. She has an insatiable appetite for learning, but the best part about our sessions is when she looks at me with the “I get it now” look. Just priceless! It has been an honor to be her tutor.” – Kathy Jarman, Tutor

 

Region 12 – North Orange County:

Caleb, School on Wheels Student of the Month

Caleb (7th Grade) – “At first, Caleb was hesitant to give new things a try and he would only give short, quick responses to questions. He has become much more comfortable challenging himself with new or difficult activities. With a solid amount of dedication, consistency, and determination, reading is now his favorite activity. I am proud of his improvement and excited to see his progression continue in the upcoming months.” – Jacob Maldonado, Tutor
