I am a retired school teacher. I loved being a teacher. The Siena Learning Center is clean, seasonally decorated, welcoming and absolutely devoted to the non-English speaker. Each learner’s growth is overseen with care and concern, and each tutor’s comfort level is very important to the Sisters. There is a plethora of books, articles, maps, charts, language props and general education information accessible. Everyone is helpful and most kind. It is a pleasure to be a small part of a wonderful, caring organization that experiences great success.
It is a joy to have conversations in English at the start of each lesson where we are both able to laugh. My learner and I often begin excellent conversations around iPhone photos. I appreciate all of the help that I receive from Sr. Virginia when I am not certain about how to proceed when a problem arises in my tutoring.
When I first started tutoring, I didn’t know what I had to offer. As I got to know my learners, I was amazed at how eager they were to learn and how hard it was for them, but they never gave up. My learners are just wonderful to work with. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a tutor at Siena Learning Center. The smiles on my learners’ faces are all I can ask for.
