Determined To Improved
When Tyrone, 33 years old, called READ Lakeland, he was discouraged, unable to provide for his family of two young daughters, and embarrassed about his 3rd grade level reading skills. We provided him with a tutor who helped him improve his reading skills and self confidence. Tyrone found a job that allowed him to support his family and, with the encouragement of his tutor, he began to reach toward a more secure future; he recently completed a course at PSC. While his economic problems are not over, his READ Lakeland tutor continues to provide him with academic support while helping guide him through the maze of college and financial aid applications; he is determined to improve his family’s life and become a productive citizen.
