Students of the Month (3/21)

Himika

Age 13

Himika loves to read different books, and is also learning Japanese! In math, she has been struggling with exponents but we worked on that and it’s gotten much better now!


Working with Himika, I have learned that even though some concepts can be tough to master with many different intricate parts, more and more practice can lead to amazing progress!

Irvin

Age 19

Irvin is very special because he is so eager to learn and he is such a courteous young man. Since he has had so many breaks in his education history, the online system (made necessary by the pandemic) is especially challenging. Nevertheless, Irvin is making great progress toward earning his high school diploma!


Irvin wants to become a chef, and someday open his own Mexican restaurant. Working with him, I have seen and learned the power of resilience.

Yozelyn

Age 6

Yozelyn loves to draw, play soccer, and use her imagination to play pretend. Her favorite colors are baby blue, royal blue, gold, baby pink, and baby purple. She loves cats, koalas, and bunnies.


When Yozelyn grows up she would like to be a police officer or a nurse. I have learned that consistent one-on-one time spent on literacy skills allows students to make gains they need to become fluent readers. Every child deserves the opportunity to become a strong reader.


Yozelyn has also taught me that she learns better when I am open to her sense of humor. She loves constructing sentences that make her laugh when we learn new sight words, and I have learned to be flexible!

Amari

Age 9

Amari’s unmatched and diligent work ethic makes him extremely special. He has had a little difficulty regarding mathematical equations, but after weeks of arduously working on the skill together, he has mastered it.


While not certain about what he wants to do in the future, Amari knows that he wants to go to college.


I have learned many important lessons from my student, including thinking in a different perspective, which allows me to benefit him even more.
