Students from all first grade classes were surprised to meet their tutor from Tutormate.  Students and tutors have worked together online all year thanks to the Tutormate program and on Tuesday they were finally able to meet face to face.  The students were excited to come face to face with the volunteer that has helped them learn to read.  The volunteers from Lear, Comerica Bank and Quicken Loans were introduced to their tutee and greeted one another with hugs and smiles.  The first grade teachers were appreciative of the additional support from the volunteers for working with the students in their classrooms.
