Testimonial of an adult learner
Project Read, Santa Clara County

"After I attended the orientation there was another appointment. That’s when I was told that they were going to get me a tutor. All I could think about was that my tutor was going to judge me. I could remember in my adolescent days going to school and always having this feeling that I was being judged because I was so slow and did not know how to read very good. But at the age of 47 I was determined to learn to read. About two weeks later I received the call saying they had a tutor for me. When I went to meet her, it was like God placed her in my life because I felt so comfortable being around someone I've known not even twenty minutes. It was a very good feeling knowing I had someone that was not going to judge me." Patricia
