THE HOMEWORK HOUSE DIFFERENCE—ADRIAN'S STORY
At Homework House our mission is to rekindle a love of learning one page and one child at a time. And sometimes that happens in surprising ways! Adrian came to Homework House last year as a 4th grader struggling with reading. One afternoon, a tutor came in wearing a necktie that had a picture of the Beatles on it. Adrian saw the tie and was hooked - he became enthralled by all things Fab Four. Seizing this opportunity to make a connection, his tutor, Ann, found a Beatles biography and together over the next few months they read the book and did other research on the group. Ann was able to use Adrian’s fascination with the Beatles to open up a whole new world of reading to him and slowly his reading began to improve. In fact, his reading improved way beyond what his school was expecting - jumping 6 levels rather than the 2 levels expected!!
