Finding Magic With Tutor Deb Beaton

“You can find magic wherever you look.
Sit back and relax, all you need is a book!”

Some days are just hard. Days when you simply need that touch of magic described above by Dr. Seuss.

Yesterday Rosie* arrived at her tutoring session – and at the sight of her volunteer tutor Deb – began an inconsolable, tear-filled accounting of her day at school.

With her backpack flung absentmindedly over her shoulder, Rosie just slumped and it was clear to Deb that tackling homework wasn’t a first priority.

First Deb listened; and then they talked.

Then they read a book.

Thank you to all of our volunteer tutors, who donate time and magic to students, who sometimes just need a shoulder to lean on.
