Sarah Young wins McBride tutoring award

Sarah Young, a junior From Fayetteville, Ohio, was the recipient of this year’s Molly McBride Tutoring Excellence Award.  

The award is given annually to a tutor who demonstrates a superior level of tutoring skills and caring for MSU students. It is named in honor of Molly McBride, a Tutoring and Learning Center (TLC) tutor who was killed in a car crash in May 2013. 

The TLC tutors are undergraduates who help their fellow students through tutoring mathematics, business, sciences, writing, foreign languages and other subjects. 

“I really love the community I work with. The Tutoring and Learning Center takes such great care of its employees, it has easily been the best job I have ever had,” Young said. “I started tutoring as a freshman and I often looked up to the tutors that I knew who have also won this award, Taylor Cash and Shelby Price. I am so thankful that the students I have worked with thought to nominate me.” 

Young is a psychology and legal studies double-major. She tutors her fellow students in subjects such as writing, math, speech, statistics, praxis core, psychology and logic. She first began working as a tutor in October 2016 and was promoted to tutor specialist in January of last year.
