LSSU student tutor is best in state

Posted: July 29th, 2012

BEST TUTOR IN STATE – Lake Superior State University President Tony McLain conveys a congratulatory letter and check to LSSU student tutor Megan Sorensen, who has been named tutor of the year by the Michigan Tutorial Association. She was selected out of the hundreds of tutors MTA serves at every university and college in Michigan. Sorensen tutors biology, chemistry, and math to college and middle and high school students, and has helped develop LSSU's on-line tutoring program. LSSU employs up to 80 student tutors each year through its Learning Center, located in the Kenneth Shouldice Library. On the left is Cindy Rosz, one of Sorensen's tutoring students who wrote a letter of recommendation for the award. Looking on from the right is learning assistance coordinator Carolyn Rajewski
 and learning specialist Geralyn Narkiewicz
, both with the Learning Center. Sorensen, from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., is finishing up a secondary education degree in integrated science with a math minor. This is the first time an LSSU student tutor has received this honor. Sorensen will be recognized by the MTA at its meeting in October. (LSSU/John Shibley)
