The Tutor-A-Bull program aims to help both student teachers in the USF College of Education and struggling grade, middle and high school students by pairing them up for one-on-one instruction. It's a program championed by Tampa philanthropist Olin Mott, and the College of Ed recently honored him for his efforts. See more about Tutor-A-Bull and its main supporter on University Beat on WUSF TV.
