This blog is hosted by Daniel F. Bassill, D.H.L., who created the Tutor/Mentor Connection in 1993 and the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC in 2011, to support the growth of comprehensive, volunteer-based, tutoring, mentoring and learning programs reaching K-16 youth living in high poverty areas of Chicago and other cities.
The focus on this blog is not “how to build a tutor/mentor program” or “how to tutor, or mentor”, but on how we engage adults who don’t live in poverty, in on-going learning, drawing from articles and research already created by others over the past 30 years. Instead of constantly reinventing-the wheel, learn to borrow ideas from others who area already working on the same problem, in your own community, or in other parts of the world. Instead of launching new solution, after new solution, learn to provide consistent on-going support so that solutions have years to mature and have impact.
In this context, I’m your mentor, and your tutor, as I hope to help you find and use information and data that you can apply to solving complex problems in your neighborhood or community.
