b'130springtideresearch.orgIve experienced a sense of belonging through being an AVID tutor at school. We are a group of four, and they are my family. I see them every morning, and they never fail to make me laugh. The whole AVID class is a community where we help each other be better academically and personally. When I help them with math or any subject, its a rewarding feeling when they say thank-you or even when they realize what to do, I feel like Im doing something that will benefit them in the future.Ximena, 17'
