Volunteer Spotlight: Robin H.

Robin has been tutoring with New Haven Reads for four years now, at Willow Street. She heard about NHR from a friend who is an author who had been tutoring for years and loved it. She decided that as soon as her schedule allowed, she would join as well, and she was able to in June of 2017. Robin was a regular classroom teacher who had struggled with supporting students who needed extra help in reading, and she found that NHR was a great program for just that! She loves the supportive and enthusiastic atmosphere of parents, tutors, and children collaborating together to provide the best experience possible for the children. In her own words, “Just walking through the door is an uplifting experience!”
