Michelle Rock – Literacy Tutor
Michelle Rock joined WFDA as a tutor in 2015 and is instrumental in improving our class monitoring. She’s one of our volunteer help line support team and a lead tutor with Maxine Johnson at our Summer Transition Club.
Why did you get involved with WFDA?: I became involved as it’s a local organisation which fulfils a vital function. Not every parent can afford one-to-one specialist tuition, and as WFDA meets the needs of local children it really deserves support. More importantly though, it is a community of highly skilled specialists which is a great boon to an independent professional like me.
Share a WFDA highlight: Meeting the students and parents in my groups for the first time and realising how much fun we were going to have.
How do you like to relax?: I’m a keen cyclist and gardener with a garden and two allotments. Most importantly, I’ve two beautiful grandchildren who live in Japan, so Skype story times are very special to me.
What’s your rule of life?: Every bit of it’s precious, no matter what its form.
