Help Keep the Tutor/Mentor Connection (T/MC) available
to Chicago and the world. The T/MC was conceived in 1993 and launched in January 1994...24 years ago!


We all want same long-term result. Read this article to see how the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC and T/MC support this with an extensive knowledge base.

Read other articles from the Tutor/Mentor blog and the presentations in the library on the T/MC web site.  Do you find anyone sharing these types of ideas in Chicago or another city? If not, then help Dan continue to do this, and help him do it better.

 Read Dan's 2017 Holiday Appeal Letter  Listen to 2017 podcast interview.

Look at the other "intermediaries" in Chicago and around the country. Do they offer the same range of resources and ideas? Have they been doing this for over 20 years?


Rather than trying to be the single leader in a huge city, the T/MC and now T/MI, have sought to provide an information platform that all leaders can use to innovate ways to support tutor/mentor program growth in more places.  While there is one map for Chicago there are thousands of leaders.
