Pomona, CA. 13 Feb. 2019
In her quiet, patient way, Barbara encourages her peers to do their homework, explains the difficult lessons, and organizes study sessions with them. Her classmates even contact her late at night when they get stuck on some homework assignments. Barbara is extremely dependable. If she is asked to do something, one does not have to check back to be sure it will be done. This year we have two new Chinese students in middle school whose language level is extremely low. Barbara has been one of our most effective and dependable tutors, helping those students to understand their lessons and improve their English. She is very kind and generous to those in need. She not only volunteered herself, but organized 2 other international seniors to volunteer at Holy Name of Mary Church to prepare and later distribute Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets to the poor. She is always smiling and friendly and has a charming easy laugh. She is highly regarded by international and domestic students alike. She is very deserving to be the Rotary Student of the Month for Pomona Catholic.
