Tutor, Boston, MA - March 30, 2015
Working to create a relationship with NECAT and traveling to the center was a rewarding experience that helped myself as well as others. A typical day at the center involved tutoring underprivileged adults from the greater Boston area about culinary math, which would pay off in their work in the kitchen (most were studying with the intent to become cooks). The most difficult aspect of the job was teaching myself how to tutor persons who had not been exposed to any formal education in years or even decades. However, hearing the stories of those I tutored and being able to make a lasting impact in the lives of others was an important experience for me personally. I am grateful to have been a part of the center, and while I am unable to travel to the center presently due to scheduling conflicts, I was able to help compile a new group of students to continue the fostering of the NECAT-Boston College relationship.
