“My mother and father were teachers, so maybe it’s in my DNA. Tutoring a bright and enthusiastic boy like Bryan seems to bring out the best in both of us. When I asked what kind of stories he likes best, he said ‘funny ones,’ and wrote a story’s first sentence: ‘I like to read upside down.’ We shared a good laugh.” – Eastport Boys Club tutor
