ticipate," said Mrs. Cec
Wiar, Avery principal.
Like other Tutor-A-
Student volunteers, Mrs.
Erlich, a Hadassah member,
said she thought signing up
to be a tutor seemed like a
good idea.
"I thought it would be
rewarding and it is," said
Mrs. Erlich, who with three
children in college and no job,
had time to give. She now
volunteers four mornings a
week.
The project started out
small. Mrs. Wiar began by
speaking to teachers in the
first and second grades to
identify which Soviet
students could benefit from
one-on-one experience.
"The first week (Oct. 15)
began with 13 volunteers,"
Mrs. Wiar said. Each vol-
unteer works with no more
than three students an hour,
for at least 20 minutes at a
time, usually at small tables
placed throughout the
school's hallways.
While each tutor usually
works with the same stu-
dent, often those students
who need more than 20
minutes a week of extra
study work with a number of
tutors, Mrs. Wiar said. A few
children work with various
tutors five days a week.
Although some class time
is missed for these tutoring
sessions, students usually
work on the assignments
their schoolmates are doing
in the classroom, she said.
While Hadassah conceived
the Tutor-A-Student Project
as a way to help Soviet Jews,
it has become more than
that.

Teachers soon identified
more students who needed
tutoring, many of them not
Soviets, Mrs. Bodzin said.
When tutors agreed to
work with other students in
addition to the Soviets, the
program was expanded. It
now includes third-grade
students and will eventually
grow to help those in fourth
and fifth grades.
Mrs. Wiar is pleased with
the results of the Tutor-A-
Student Project. Teachers
have told her they can see
how much the children who
receive tutoring have
benefitted, she said.
Mrs. Erlich said in the
short time she's been work-
ing with Toni, she's seen the
girl gain confidence.
"She's come out of herself
a lot," Mrs. Erlich said.
"She's also doing better in
her reading."
Mrs. Erlich is surprised
how quickly the Soviet
students learn English.
"The Soviet kids are geared
toward education because
they don't know the lang-
uage," she said "It's impor-
tant for them to learn lang-
uage. It's a great motiva-
tion."
She credits the students
more than her teaching
skills for the progress. Mrs.
Erlich, who never taught
before, said she doesn't do
much teaching when she's
with the students.
"If you just show an inter-
est in them, they want to
learn. It makes it easier for
them," she said. "It's more
like being a mother helping
her children with
schoolwork."
