Mentor Dreams


You are here

John Kennedy ’87 had a career as a physicist and college physics instructor in California. Now 
retired, John volunteers several hours a week in UMD’s American Indian Learning Resource Center as a mentor and tutor. 

"The best way to tutor someone in physics is to help them visualize the concepts,” John Kennedy says. “It’s challenging and rewarding at the same time. The best part is that I get to relive the excitement of learning.” 

When alumni mentor or tutor, they not only share knowledge, they also give students valuable support.

Does developing a one-on-one connection with a student to offer career and networking advice sound like something you’d like to do? Contact Alumni Relations, alumni@d.umn.edu or 218-726-7164, for more information.
