Volunteer Spotlight: Meet our new Tutor!

Hi Everyone, my name is Evan. I am a freshman majoring in Psychology at Florida Gulf Coast University. I love clothes, taking pictures, galivanting with my friends, food, volleyball, and Netflix.

After tutoring for about a month so far, I’ve come to learn that I am a positive role model for my students and conscientious about their progress. I always encourage them throughout the lessons, so they acknowledge that they are seen and enjoying their lessons while building their literacy skills.

As for my life, it is an approach I execute to help me stay  positive during times of difficulty with my own studies and is a lesson that pushes me to step out of my shoes and see my student’s perspective of being the learner. I am grateful to have taken this opportunity at GiGi’s Playhouse and make a positive difference in my students and their dreams and goals possible.
