Feedback from a teacher at a school who received support from a Cardiff University Student last year:
"To have this extra help, certainly if it is in the child's home language, is wonderful for both the teacher and the child/children. The children respond really well - having someone to communicate with, talk to; just to feel like a regular child and not someone who stands out and feels different. The child's personality comes out and you see them relaxed and comfortable. They are engaged in work in a way they are not usually. You have a better understanding and knowledge of ability levels too - it shows how capable and able they are in their first language."
