News from TAC – Attend a Meeting!

The Tutor Advisory Committee (TAC) facilitates communication among tutors and serves as a liaison between tutors and the Executive Director of PALS. We organize events by tutors, for tutors!

We have two ongoing programs just for you:

1) Tutor Connect

Tutor Connect allows you to connect with a fellow tutor to ask questions, discuss ideas or get some advice.

Choose from the list of tutors who are willing to be contacted by a fellow tutor on the PALS website (Tutor Login – Tutor Connect). You can choose a name from Literacy, LELL, Math, or Digital and contact them through their email. Once you’ve made your first connection, you may together decide to continue virtually or by phone.


2) Sharing Circle

Every two months, tutors in all streams are invited to an informal group chat on Zoom.  The last one took place on January 25, and the topic was Burnout.  A dozen tutors gave many suggestions for identifying and addressing burnout (have you heard of laughter yoga?)

Although we have a main topic each time, the goal of the Sharing Circle is for new and experienced tutors in ALL streams to mingle with each other and discuss any questions, ideas and stories that come to mind. How has your tutoring been going?  If you’re a brand new tutor, maybe even not yet matched with a learner, how was your PALS orientation and training? What would you like to ask or tell your fellow tutors?  Watch your email for a personal invitation to join us at the next circle in late March.  We would love to see you!

TAC meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm on Zoom. Please come meet us and say hi!  Do you like organizing events? We would love to hear all your ideas for future tutor events.  Please email us to check out a meeting: [email protected]
