Tutoring: Joe
Joe is in 7th grade but reads at a 3rd grade level. Joe is a good kid who has taken care of his younger sister and didn't get a lot of direction from mother. Fostering Education Initiatives (FEI) paid for tutoring for Joe and his sister - which helped a great deal. His sister's grades improved dramatically and Joe's improved some. FEI won't pay for additional tutoring but it's still needed. His foster mother is committed to helping him succeed and would like there to be a continued relationship between him and the tutor that he has already developed a working relationship with. His GAL requested additional support to continue his tutoring and help increase his self-esteem.

Thanks to you, Joe has increased his reading levels significantly. He continues to be in a stable environment with his foster parent and is hoping to be on track before the end of the year!
