A special tutor-student relationship involving dyslexia, reading problems and career challenges has reached a 25-year milestone, North Coast Education Services (NCES) announced today with a story about their lives.

Gretchen Jaeger, a private tutor with NCES and a former English teacher in Cleveland-area public schools, originally agreed to teach the student (Jennifer) to read. A slow learner, Jennifer has coped with hearing problems and dyslexia. Over the decades, Gretchen has supported Jennifer as a career coach. The story uses pseudonyms for Jennifer and her mother (Linda) because the family would prefer to be anonymous.
