I'm a top set GCSE student (year 10/Age 15) who wants to help children learn to read. I like to chat with students briefly at the beginning of lessons, enabling a rolemodel relationship to develop. Then we begin to read and assistance is given where necessary. Lessons are held at Northolt, Yeading or Greenford libraries so that a large variety of books at many levels are available.
I have worked for the last term with my secondary school to help mentor primary school students in our academy trust. The rest of the group and I make our way, once a week, to the primary school and help young boys (year 1) to read. We do this as boys of this age are, on average, struggling heavily with reading. As a result of this, teachers at the primary school have feedback to us and I have been told that the boys' reading confidence had increased.
Currently studying at GCSE level.
Volunteered in a "help-to-read" style primary school scheme for a term.
George is very academic and enjoys school. Although George has yet to take his GCSE's his teachers are confident that he will achieve high grades. George is a confident and very mature 15 year old.
George likes to help other children achieve their goals. He is part of a community group which attends the local primary school to help younger children bring on their reading and writing skills. I think younger children look up to an elder child in a different way to an adult or teacher and often strive to be like that elder child.
As a mother, I would prefer George to meet with your child at the local library for tuition and I am happy to attend in the background until the child feels comfortable in George's company.
I think George will be a great attribute to your child's learning and this will also allow George to develop his teaching skills which he may take further in the future.
