George and his Volunteer Tutor
As a foreign trained engineer, George moved to town three years ago. English is not his first language. He has been working in an engineering company since then. At the start, he was challenged with the writing part of his job, including emails, letters, and papers. Fortunately a librarian from Thunder Bay Public Library referred him to the TBLG. In almost three years, this program has helped him to successfully improve his writing skills. He is more comfortable writing emails, articles, specifications, and proposals. In addition to helping him achieve job requirements, the skills he learned also helped him in the completion of his foreign education certification. Over a six-month period, he successfully finished assignments and a final examination.
