Wolverine Tutors 2016

Who are we?

We are the Wolverine Tutors.

We are an undergraduate ignited organization at the University of Michigan that aims to utilize technology to tutor and mentor middle & high school students.

We strive to motivate our students to pursue post-secondary education and relieve educational disparities through technology and personal mentoring.

We want to…

1. Develop RELATIONSHIPS

We want to develop a personal and positive relationship with high school students seeking academic improvement, encouraging them to pursue further education and gain self-confidence in the classroom.

2. Use TECHNOLOGY

We want to demonstrate the importance of technology in an evolving learning process and use it to make education more accessible to students.

3. See IMPROVEMENTS

We want to see academic improvements in our students in the subjects of Math, Science, English and Writing. We also want to see higher college matriculation rates.

Hello, my name is Chris. I'm a Senior at uofM studying Music Education and English Education. I am hoping to become a teacher in both subjects. I went to Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor, and enjoyed English and Music (obviously) as well as my Auto Shop class. I enjoy biking, and over the summer I got my motorcycle license. I work at the Ann Arbor District Library, and I collect coins (one from every country in the world). I also love to read. I'm looking forward to getting to know you!
