Many of our students have stepped up to be teachers and tutors to help out parents and caregivers that are facing different challenges and inequities with schools being closed. We commend Nan’kware ‘21 for her empathy, selflessness, and hard work.
“Recently, my mother expressed to me how many women in her church have been struggling to help their children with homework because of their limited English skills and time as well. As she spoke to me about it, I told her that I would be willing to help any of the parents who need it whether it’s math, science, or even those who need somewhere to leave their kids while at work. My mother contacted them and two families expressed how they needed help. Both families are from Haiti while their children are first-generation there are obviously many differences that I myself am aware of as a first-generation American. I now am tutoring on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If anyone needs another day of help they are free to call me so that we can FaceTime or do a Zoom call.”
