Volunteer tutor, Michael Reiter, of Brookfield, began tutoring in September of 2017. A retired journalist and IBM communications executive, Michael developed a close bond with his adult English language learners and expressed a keen interest in US Citizenship preparation. Michael was a remarkable tutor – patient and empathetic and meticulous as he planned each lesson to be impactful and relevant for each of his students. In October of 2020, LVG celebrated with Brookfield Town Officials, as Michael’s student, Norma Castillo, was honored for receiving her US Citizenship. Michael’s memory is a blessing to the LVG community, we hold Michael’s wife and LVG tutor, Leslie Reiter, and her family close in our thoughts.
