Young Alina Pizur used to sit and cry, says her mother Barb, when working on her school reading assignments.
"She would know her sight words," recalls Barb, "but couldn't grasp a new word."
Alina's 2nd grade teacher, Tina Bailey, contacted Barb and discussed the specifics of Alina's struggles, eventually beginning to tutor the Culver Elementary youngster after hours, starting last December.
Barb has noticed a significant difference in her daughter's scholastic performance.
