Annual Survey Testimonials
Our annual surveys confirm what we hear from students and teachers throughout the school year: that Los Ayudantes are a real help to students, and that reading skills and confidence improve.
Thank you so much for the time and effort you have put into our students this year. The students have enjoyed reading and working with you and have missed you during the time we have had to shelter in place. We hope that you are staying safe and healthy during this difficult and unprecedented time. While we may have to continue with online learning again next year, I am hoping that we can still work together even through computers to give students the boost in reading and social connections that they need. Thanks again for partnering with us!" - Sabrina Adler, Kennedy Middle School
"Los Ayudantes has had a significant impact on student achievement. Los Ayudantes tutors work one-on-one with students or in small groups, which gives students a safe place to learn and allows tutors to tailor instruction to meet the students' individual needs" - Jennifer Knopf, Assistant Vice Principal, McKinley Institute of Technology
I really liked having you in my class every Tuesday. It was very fun working with you. You helped me a lot. I am glad you came because I have completed a lot of work we had to do" - Diana, a student at McKinley Institute of Technology.
Thank you for your continued support. Ours has been a multi-year partnership that has endured administrations and now the COVID crisis. We look forward to redefining how we can support each other next year. Thank you for all you do. " - Nick Fanourgiakis, Principal at McKinley Institute of Technology
My students have performed well on district reading assessments this year. I attribute some of this to being able to read with knowledgeable adults in small group once or twice a week." - Teacher at McKinley Institute of Technology
"Los Ayudantes is a great group of volunteers who care about our future. They come alongside to help in ways a teacher cannot accomplish alone." - Milagro Velasco, Language Arts teacher at McKinley Institute of Technology
