Aili, 11 years old

"When I come to The Tutoring Academy, I feel happy and excited because I am learning more and more about books. I've learned from Sharee that a book isn't just something you read—there's also a big story going on, with interesting characters, and interesting events. We talk about the inner workings of the story, and why the author chooses to tell the story in a certain way. I stretch my thoughts to understand the underlying idea. Learning to understand the inner workings of a story is a lot like art. We don't just draw random pictures—when you take a close look and see what is happening in your mind, in art, it is a lot like taking a close look at the story and seeing in your mind what is happening to the characters. I don't draw because it's fun and looks good, I draw because I see the pictures in my mind and I need to get them on paper. That is a lot like reading a book—you see the characters in your mind and you become a part of the story—you actually go into the book and live with the characters. Being a reader brings so much joy to my life. Sharee has taught me to stretch my brain and let it be flexible. She is an awesome tutor and I love learning here."
Aeron, 13 years old

Annie, 14 years old

"Sharee helps me feel comfortable about my reading.  I love the conversations we have about the books we read."
