Meet Some of Our Tutors
|Michael Yáñez McPherson||Linda and Joe Schuette|
My name is Michael and I have enjoyed teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) with Southwest Valley Literacy Association (SVLA) for three years. I researched school and church programs before finding this program. SVLA provides the training, materials and the students that enable me to contribute to the community and to SVLA.
Linda and Joe have been tutoring in Arizona for three years. Linda had a head-start on volunteering with Literacy Center of Omaha (named 2013 Volunteer of the Year) for three years before they retired. Joe owned his own business and Linda helped with the books along with being a full-time Realtor. After moving to Arizona, Joe followed Linda’s lead into English tutoring with SVLA. They both find tutoring to be very rewarding and a great way to “give back.”
Behind every amazing students is an equally amazing tutor. In the last year, Southwest Valley Literacy tutors provided 10,000 hours of tutoring to West Valley adults! Read about our tutors and see what motivates them to volunteer their time to help improve the lives of others. We hope to see your picture here soon.
