Education in Action / Student Investors
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.
Students in one USF Business course have a lot more than a grade on the line—more like over 200 thousand dollars in REAL money!

Tampa businessman-philanthropist Olin Mott shares his advice for business people: get involved with local education, which will produce good employees. Then Brittany Sawyer, a USF senior studying elementary education, talks about the students she helps through the Tutor-A-Bull program.
