Volunteer Tutor Shares Rewarding Experience On ‘Charlotte Today’
August 18, 2015
Heart Executive Director Emily Elliott and volunteer tutor LouAnn Vaughn talked about our volunteer drive Monday, Aug. 17, on “Charlotte Today.” Colleen Odegaard and Eugene Robinson host the weekday morning news/lifestyle show on NBC Charlotte (WCNC-TV).
Vaughn explained that Heart’s research-based, structured curriculum is easy to tutor, interactive and engaging. Students use real-life situations and games so that “instead of memorizing math facts, (they’re) understanding how numbers work and understanding in their bones that 3 and 4 together make 7,” Vaughn said during the interview.
