Paul Jeffreys: Volunteer Tutor in Blackmount School

In this video, Paul talks about his very rewarding experience as a volunteer tutor working in Blackmount School.

Paul was inspired to become a school visitor after meeting Brother David.

Paul talks about how volunteer tutoring can greatly benefit each child by offering the undivided attention of an adult. Even beyond helping children with their reading, these sessions provide the opportunity to chat. He remembers chatting to his pupil about football in general and Ballymena United in particular. "Actually, I live in Ballymena," Paul said. The little boy's eyes widened. "Are you from a different country?" he asked in amazement!
