David wanted to attend adult education classes offered in Farmington where he lives, but his work schedule at a Rochester restaurant conflicted with the class times. Fortunately, David found out about the Strafford County Adult Tutorial Program, which has provided him with a volunteer tutor who can meet with him during his time off. In fact, David meets with two different tutors weekly, one on Tuesday and another on Wednesday.
David is determined to improve his reading skills. To quote one of his tutors, Mary Desfosses, “He is completely open to anything that will help him learn – using children’s books does not insult him at all. He hasn’t missed a tutoring session in a long time and has become better communicating by phone.”
David loves to ride his motorcycle on country roads. He always enjoys the ride, but now the destination–a tutoring session–is equally important.
