The Pines Altos Art Gallery is then open for the season for the same hours on the before-men- tioned days of the week, plus major holidays, through October By SHERRILYN ARREDONDO/ Director of Hidalgo County Lit- eracy Program In an article appearing in the previous edition of the Hidalgo County Herald, the saga began by relating the request to literacy programs such as the Hidalgo County Literacy Program (HELP) to submit written documents jus- tifying why one-to-one tutoring programs are successful and im- portant to the people available to such programs. Included in the body of the HCLP document sub- mitted was first hand testimony of the value of the one-to-one experience as experienced by the tutor. As relayed, One-to-One tu- toring is an incredibly valuable tool, and also one that quickly elevates the learning student to a feeling of empowered control. Such a student rapidly gains a greater sense of confidence and self-esteem, so enabled because a one-to-one tutor/learner rela- tionship puts each learner's edu- cational needs as the only focus of that relationship. As the only Focus, the student develops a sense of self-worth. As a student embraces the realization that only the learner can change the direc- tion of his/her life and that only he/she can do it, the tutor provides that student with learning mate- rials and tools to enable that change. A one-to-one tutor allows that student the tutor's undivided attention while presenting learn- ing challenges for continued growth to the student. A tutor must be a listener to be a successful tutor, As quoted by Ernest Hemingway, "I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen."
