Congratulations to the Winner of TLC's 2010 Outstanding Tutor Award!!

Laurie Anson, of Noxen, PA is the recipient of Tutors of Literacy in the Commonwealth's 2010 Outstanding Tutor Award. Congratulations Laurie!!! Laurie works with the Bradford-Wyoming Literacy Program, headquartered at the Bradford County Library, and will be presented her award at the opening luncheon of the 2010 PAACE Conference on June 1 at the Penn Stater Conference Center in State College.

When observed, Laurie and her learner, 'D', worked in a room with walls peppered with materials relevant to their studies. The learner practically burst into the room in her excitement to get started.  She quickly pointed to some pictures on the wall and worked to remember the names of the individuals pictured. 'D' was well aware of what was expected of her throughout the lesson and she was always ready to move on to the next step. Laurie and 'D' obviously have a well developed rapport which helps 'D' refocus when she gets frustrated - she was able to laugh at herself when Laurie touched her shoulder and said "I sense a bit of frustration here...".

To all of you hard-working, dedicated tutors out there - KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! You may be the next Outstanding Tutor.
