The Tutor-a-Bull program strives to increase motivation for learning by providing academic support and enrichment opportunities for middle students in Hillsborough County. USF education majors serve as paid Tutor-A-Bull tutors who regularly work with students to provide a more individualized learning experience.
Created in 2007 by Mr. Olin Mott (1921-2013), the Tutor-a-Bull program is a partnership that provides aspiring USF teachers with one-on-one, small group, and classroom experience. Over the past decade, Tutor-a-Bull has served more than 4,000 students by providing almost 70,000 hours of individualized instruction in reading and math, conducted by more than 900 Tutor-a-Bull teachers-in-training.
