I was definitely eager and excited to go back to the school this new year. I knew the girls would get happy to see me. It feels good knowing that they appreciate and enjoy the time we share together. This week I only tutored one girl though, because the other girl I had is being tutored on Wednesdays now. I won’t have her anymore. I was a little down about this, since we already had an established relationship, but on the other hand it means that one more child can get my help. I went over the sight words with her and I was very pleased that she got most of them correct. After, I was reading a story and this was when our advisors from school visited us. I noticed the change in my girl immediately. She got shy and put her head down. She asked who these people were, so I explained to her. She was a bit uncomfortable, so I told her that she shouldn’t be shy, because they just wanted to say hi and were nice people. After this she changed her attitude and wasn’t afraid to talk to them. I liked the fact that our advisors came because I feel it made the kids feel special and important. There are people who care about their learning, apart from their teacher or even myself. She surprised me when she asked for my help in her spelling. I remember once before, it was as if she didn’t want to write about the story. She was “rebellious” because she wrote something wrong and I told her it was incorrect. She gave up then and I had to persuade her to write about the story, but this time it was different. She told me that she wasn’t sure and needed my help. She wrote most of the two sentences on her own sounding out the letters.
