Tamara Kohl-Kennedy
Student Success Specialist,
Cuyahoga Community College
Statement:  It is my personal mission to treat every student with dignity and respect; to encourage their success through supportive inquiries and intrusive mentoring; to offer a simple “Great job!” or “Congratulations!” on anything from a satisfactory midterm status to a passing quiz score, from an hour spent in the tutoring center to meeting a deadline. I work each day to ask leading questions and to help students discover what they need, which questions to ask and how to self-advocate. I encourage students to see that everything can be a teachable experience, that failure is not fatal.
