My name is Michael Sillah Kamara. I am 29 years old. I came from Sierra Leone and am married with one daughter.

I graduated from the Cunard Learning Centre and now study at FLECs.

I want to graduate from FLECs by working hard and get my high school diploma and go to NSCC and study accounting as my long term goal.

The thing I like best about the Captain William Spry tutoring program is the way Linda is helping me in reading and writing and to improve my English. I also like the friendship of the people at the library as it gives me more confidence and motivates me to continue my studies.

I would like to encourage every one who wants to improve his or her reading and writing or wants to continue in school to visit a library or adult learning program in Halifax for help. Thanks to people like Linda and my tutor David, you will get the help you need.
