Our Wall Of Love

This is a small collection of the wins we have collected from students, parents and tutors— a small sampling of quotes and videos to show that our program works. And they all have one thing in common: they are all a testament to our community of tutors and students who are making a difference in each others lives.

My favorite thing about Learn To is the opportunity it gives me to create a positive impact on the world by inspiring a future generation, especially those of that generation who might otherwise not be predisposed, to pursue an education that will allow them to forge the futures they want.

I greatly enjoy tutoring on Learn To Be. The platform is outstanding and very easy to use. The people running the organization are excellent and truly dedicated to helping our youth. The students are motivated to learn. I look forward to tutoring on this platform for a long time.

My favorite thing about Learn To Be is being able to work with students in underserved communities without anyone having to travel. The facilities Learn To Be offers (selection of students, scheduling including automated time zone adjustment, texting via an independent number, Zoom) make it easy to have an effective, online learning relationship. The continuity of working with the same students over time allows tutors to prepare customized instruction and enables students who are initially shy to become more comfortable. The supportive staff and community communication via Slack are also helpful. Learn To Be is wonderful!

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the exceptional support and dedication that Emma provided to my son Thomas during their tutoring sessions. Her efforts have made a significant positive impact on his learning experience. Thanks Emma and thanks Learn to be!

My son has been working with his tutor for over a year and his tutor is awesome. He takes his time with my son and really makes sure he understands what he is supposed to be learning. The tutor has been very consistent with our appointments. He also uses their time wisely and makes sure they stay on task during sessions. My son's academic performance and overall academic confidence has improved significantly since he started working with his tutor. I am very grateful for this program and specifically my son's tutor. If I can am allowed to shout the tutor out by name I would love to do so because he deserves the recognition.

Sofia- my first and current student- helped me fall in love with teaching and mentorship. Watching her grow as a student and as a young person has been the most incredible experience and after each lesson I am more and more proud of her. At the end of each lesson, I ask if she is proud of herself and the work she did and everyday I get an enthusiastic, "Yes!" Even after a difficult lesson or talking through a tricky test that didn't go so well, Sofia has learned to take pride in herself just for trying her best.

I love the tutor that my daughter has been tutoring with so far. Great lessons and wonderful teaching. Ms. Jessica Brown is indeed a great tutor!

Learn to be tutoring has been incredibly helpful for my daughter, Abigail, Grade 5. I’m grateful for the support she received , especially from her dedicated tutor, Jada. Thanks to Learn to be, Abigail has not only gained confidence but also achieved remarkable improvements in various areas. For instance, after joining the program. Abigail auditioned for the play Aladdin, and to our delight, she secured the lead role of Jasmine. The success is a testament to the confidence she gained through her tutoring sessions. Additionally, her reading and comprehension skills have flourished since starting with Learn to be, leading to significant academic progress. We’re thrilled with the tremendous results and grateful for the positive impact, learn to be has had on Abigail’s education and overall confidence.

I really thank you for having Aminata as Yaelis’s tutor. I am very happy with her tutoring. She is very patient and intelligent and makes sure Yaelis understands and lets her think for herself. I can see a big improvement since Yaelis has started working with Aminata. Thank you!

Thank you so very much. I’d like to share with you, my children and I lived in shelter in 2023. My desire was to ensure they were exceptional and overly prepared for school. I prayed and wrote down my hearts desire to receive personal tutors for each child. I was led to research a tutoring place with no charge because I wasn’t in a position to really afford but knew they were so bright and wanted them to be ready! Your tutors were exceptional, but Ms. Reeva has surpassed them all and has been not only motivated, engaging, fun, stern, yet kind! I love it! And so so patient! We are so blessed and grateful to have found you guys. I’m now looking to add a new language while they’re learning words in English! They really are our future!

Learn To Be was a great help for my family. My family is very comfortable with this program and my daughters have improved in school. They are very happy with your help. I’m thankful for the program and how the tutors support my children.

My favorite thing about Learn To Be is the fact that we're not just some random person who calls online once or twice a week. We become a part of them, even if we don't realize it. Our actions, our time and effort contributes to the lives of so many other people and it's an amazing feeling. We're not just their tutor for an hour a week, we're there for them when they need it. We see them through their wins and losses, their ups and downs, and it's not in the slightest completely academic. Tutors and students connect on a personal level where it's not a formal relationship, but a friendly one.

I just wanted to share my testimony about Maria Carrillo and how incredible she is at tutoring my son, Dyer. My son has really connected with her, and in just two weeks, she has made significant progress with him. It's been much easier for him to tackle his homework now. I just want to say a big thank you to her; she's made my life a lot easier, and I'm so grateful for her help. And thank you Learn to be. I hope you guys know what a great help you are! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

I had a really great experience getting to know my student and communicating with him the best ways we could learn reading together. There were frustrating moments when I could not think of a way to help him understand certain grammatical rules, but the whole experience was a learning process, and I think I learned a lot more from him than he did from me. I don't usually have the opportunity to speak to younger kids in an academic setting, so talking with my student 1:1 really gave me a lot of joy and pride for the progress we made in his reading.

Learn To Be is an incredible platform that's set up for the success of tutors and tutees! It helps you feel accomplished in aiding students and enhancing their abilities within a specific subject. Similarly, students get to form bonds with their tutors and receive an educational tool that helps them reach their highest potential. The website is organized incredibly to ease navigation and set-ups, and the bonds you form on the platform are incredibly fulfilling.

I've loved seeing the tremendous improvement in my student's mathematical abilities and the growth in her confidence!

I've honestly been avoiding writing this because I haven't been exactly sure how to put into words how much I've loved every minute I've spent with Learn To Be. I am relatively new to the Learn To Be team, I joined a little over a month ago, but I have already had such an amazing experience. I am currently tutoring one student and I am so proud of him. We’ve really bonded and I’m already starting to see improvement as well as a new excitement for learning and I’ve seen him start to take initiative which has been so rewarding for me to watch. It has been amazing to watch him go from shy and somewhat unmotivated to fun and even taking initiative in his learning at such a young age. I have learned so much about both teaching and learning, patience and fun. I tell anyone who will listen about Learn To Be. I’ve really developed a passion for these kids, and it makes me so sad to see how many kids aren’t matched with a tutor. I wish I could tutor every one of them because I firmly believe that each and every child needs and deserves a quality education regardless of any circumstances. They are our future! If you are considering joining the Learn To Be team, I can only tell you amazing things. Everyone is so helpful and kind and it has been wonderful to not only connect with my student, but with other tutors as well! Thank you Learn To Be for being so much more than I expected, so much more than some service hours for NHS, and giving me a place to get outside of myself and do something meaningful. Though the impact may be small in the grand scheme, I am filled with joy and pride for my one student, and I am so happy to get to be a part of his education journey and I hope to be a part of many others'. Thank you Learn To Be!

It is truly amazing to know that there is a platform that supports sharing knowledge with no price attached. Learn To Be offers a form of communication that inspires connections across the world. It has been an honor to tutor with Learn To Be, and I am so happy they've given me the opportunity to share my education experience with those who may not have access to it. Not only has it given me the outlet to share my passion of learning with others, but it's also given me the chance to show kids that learning has no limits. It's not always an in-person experience. It can be just as fun through the screen. It proves that there are no boundaries to education and anybody who wants to learn can, no matter the circumstance. Learn To Be is an amazing way to connect with someone who truly wants to help students learn and grow in their education!

Learn To Be has impacted me by giving insight on others’ situation and showing how privileged I am to be able to help other students. It also helps me interact with students from different backgrounds and perspectives, which ultimately leaves me learning as well!

I've enjoyed being a volunteer tutor for the Learn To Be program for several years now, with over 200 hours of tutoring to my credit, and I am truly thankful for this great opportunity. What makes Learn to Be a really top-notch organization, in my opinion, is that it is run very efficiently, is abundantly capable of helping out both the tutor and the tutee to achieve maximum results, and allows tutors to choose students who would make excellent matches (instead of assigning random students to the tutors and just hope for the best). Because of the very professional way in which Learn to Be is organized, I have found it very easy to contact promising student matches and to set up Zoom meetings with them, with the knowledge that Learn to Be will have my back with sound advice or tutoring materials in case problems arise. It has therefore been a real pleasure watching students blossom and shine in their studies through the tutoring, all because Learn to Be made it possible. Larry Gevirtz

I very much enjoyed being a tutor for Learn To Be. I found a high school student who was taking College Algebra without having taken Algebra 2. She needed a lot of help but was very committed to understanding the subject. Having been retired from teaching for over 13 years, I was occasionally challenged to remember some obscure topics. We were both very happy that she passed the course with a B.

Being able to be apart of the learning, growth, and cultivation of potential is the most rewarding experience. Learn To Be means learning to be patient, understanding, and motivated to create an impact. Tutoring for this organization has become as crucial in my development, as well as for my student. As we grow and read and laugh together I’m reminded of how precious and powerful education is. Learn To Be has created a way forward through education and connection.

My name is Harvey Brodsky. I am a retired teacher. Learn To Be has been a tremendous asset in two ways. Firstly it allows students to access help in subject(s) that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to receive. It is such a wonderful event when a student states that he or she realizes that they understand something that alluded them in a crowded classroom. They not only get help in their schoolwork, but also in gaining confidence in their hidden abilities. Secondly, the tutor receives as much as the student. It is so true that the gift giver receives at least as much as the recipient. I feel so thankful that Learn To Be has allowed me to conveniently participate in over 300 hours of tutoring that have made me feel both valuable and joyful.

Dec 20, 2023

It is super satisfying to see the progress my student has made -- all of the math problems she can solve today that she couldn't solve when we started working together. But the best thing is that she can see the progress, too!

Dec 20, 2023

Tomi has great ideas, thoughts, and questions and inspires me to think through a unique perspective!

Jan 12, 2023

Davon is hilarious and he loves to learn! I absolutely love being his tutor.

Jan 12, 2023

My student is proud of the strides she's making with subjects she used to struggle with.

Jan 11, 2023

I love how she has grown as a student! She now will eagerly call out the answer because she is so excited!

Jan 11, 2023

Damar is very eager to keep going and knows what to do. It was really great to see how hard he worked and how he picked it up quickly

Jan 11, 2023

Franklin really sounded like he was improving his math skills and sounded more excited than before when he understood and had the right answers.

Jan 10, 2023

I've only had one with this student so far BUT I can already tell she is so so eager to learn and she is super engaged and it feels like even though it's the first one that we've already formed a great little bond!!

Jan 10, 2023

She has improved so much with reading out loud and understanding what is going on in the story. She also has started asking questions when she doesn't understand something which is great.

Jan 10, 2023

The student is a brilliant kid who just needs some extra attention. The potential is great and he is very willing.

Around this same time last year, I was working with my 1st grade student on spelling. We had been spelling out a certain word for a while , and he was starting to become exasperated. Disappointingly, he asked me, "Do you think I am a bad student?" It pained me to hear him ask that question, and I quickly reassured him that I had never once heard of a bad student. Every day, I was proud of him because he not only came in ready to learn, but he taught me new things every day. That moment strengthened my relationship with my student and awakened me to the deeper aspects of tutoring.

Tutor is very patient with my son and encourages him even if he gets it wrong he doesn't feel bad he understands why he got it wrong and works harder to get it right to impress his tutor. They act like buddies and I couldn't be more happy to find a tutor as kind and patient as Noah.

I just want to give you a thank you for everything you do with this organization. I met, Marcus, the young kid I tutor in reading over a year ago. It has truly been such an awesome experience witnessing a child struggle with reading and then now come to love it and call it his favorite class. I truly enjoy my experience with LTB.
