Wednesday night mentor Kate Pomper found out about Cabrini Connections through a friend at work and signed up in January 2009. She has been with her mentee, Ah'Queen James, since May and adores working with her. They got to know each other over the summer by meeting a few times off-site, first at The Art Institute of Chicago and later at a cafe to read To Kill a Mockingbird. Kate says it was very helpful to do some non-tutoring first in order for them to connect on a more personal level. Of Cabrini Connections, she says it is "amazing [and] all-around fantastic... Of all the tutor/mentor programs I've worked with, it's my favorite one." We're glad you like it here, Kate. Thanks for being a great mentor!
