Be a Volunteer Tutor and Get Good Karma

Yesterday was my last day as a volunteer tutor for the Adult Literacy Program at the Los Angeles Public Libraries. My “Adult Learner” completed the three-year program in eight months and has now surpassed my grammar expertise – particularly with things like gerunds, crazy tenses and complex sentence structure. On the part of tutors, the program requires at minimum a six month commitment with two 1 1/2 hour tutor sessions per week. I definitely learned a lot about phonics and sentence diagramming as they were never tools that I was exposed to in my education. I benefited much more than I thought I would from the program and recommend it to anyone in need of some good karma… or just wants to get out of the house. As for my own karma? Hopefully I’ve stored up enough until I find some other worthy activity.
