I have been tutoring a little second grader since October whose only wish was to be able to read the Magic Treehouse books. He was very defeated in the beginning of our tutoring sessions saying he would never be able to read like the other kids in his class. Through games like "Old Vowel", "Slap the Vowel" and "Long and Short Vowel Bingo" gave this little guy new found confidence and a real drive to prove his teacher wrong. He has successfully completed his first Magic Treehouse book and is halfway through his second. He waits by the door for :tutoring" time as it is fun and full of laughter. Giving a little bit of confidence to a great little kid makes me feel just as good as he does about what we are doing! Hope other tutors out there have such great experiences too.
