"I always rejoice in the little accomplishments"

Tutor Carol Gabbert celebrates her students' success

When Carol Gabbert began tutoring 18 years ago, she had no idea how much it would impact her life. After years of working as a preschool teacher when her children were young, Carol wanted to try something different when a friend suggested she become an OASIS Intergenerational Tutor. She looks forward to each new year and the adventures that lie ahead.

Kids say the darndest things

And their OASIS tutors love it!

A student told his OASIS tutor, "Wednesday is my favorite day. I get pizza for lunch and you!” Wouldn’t you love to know that you ranked #1 on someone’s list—right alongside pizza? That's just one of the many wonderful comments I hear from OASIS volunteer tutors. You can learn more about what it's like to be a tutor ... and rank #1 alongside pizza.
