Paul, Tutor of the Year 2024, talks about his experience with Literacy Volunteers.

We asked Paul to talk about his experience tutoring with us. Paul started in September in 2019. He helped out with conversation classes, then was matched with an adult learner who he has been working with ever since. Paul has logged in over 300 tutor hours with us so far. Thank you, Paul, for all you do!
