About Me
I've led a volunteer-based non-school tutor/mentor program in Chicago since 1975. I created Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993 to aggregate information about similar programs all over the Chicago region and to help each program get the resources, ideas and talent they need to constantly improve. I created Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC in 2011 to continue this work.

That is why we have convened business leaders, teacher unions, legislators, other non-profit foundations, and other education leaders from around the state with our project. We believe that in order to change the system, you must work with ALL people within the system. Eventually, we will include teachers, principals, parents, and students in our transformation.

Hi Daniel,

I hope you are doing well. I would love to browse your sites and will do so later this week. Most of the work that I do at KWF revolves around system change in public school systems, so I may not be the best person for you to connect with here at KnowledgeWorks. Once I have had a chance to review your information, I will pass it on to the appropriate people.

Thank you for your sharing, I will pay close attention to these!

Hi Daniel: All of the things you mentioned are important and I believe are already taking place in different capacities within CPS. Feel free to call me sometime and perhaps I can point you to the correct departments to locate the information you mentioned.
