Gordon Cook, a remarkable TLE tutor:
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Gordon Cook as one of our valued volunteers since 2015, tirelessly working at The Learning Exchange with students to tutor up to three days a week. In his capacity as a TLE math volunteer and family literacy volunteer, I have always been impressed with his ability to be so flexible, informative and friendly. When he joined TLE five years ago this month, he wrote on his application that, as a retired Electrical Engineer, he would like to utilize his knowledge and experience of math & the principles of physics to help students studying these subjects succeed. He has done just that and so much more! Gordon’s immeasurable dedication and helpful approach with students have made him an invaluable asset to both TLE and CDC-Vimont. The Learning Exchange is extremely grateful for his contribution to our community and in the advancement of literacy. He is a valued member of TLE’s family of volunteers, his ability to work with so many different learners with a kind and welcoming nature makes him truly indispensable…and quite remarkable.
