His improved English has helped him to understand instructions and better able to explain a situation to his boss. He now serves as an interpreter at work, has interpreted for a friend at the physician’s office and is helping his nephew improve his English. Drews took the tutor training in September 2014 and was matched with Jacob who she meets for tutoring sessions regularly.
