The Tutor Advisory Committee (TAC) organizes events by tutors, for tutors. We also serve as a liaison with the Executive Director of PALS. You may have seen us at the PALS AGM or conference in our green scarves!

Sharing Circle

Every two months, TAC invites tutors in all streams to an informal group chat. You can ask questions, share ideas, and talk about how your tutoring is going. Whether you are a brand new tutor or have years of experience, you are very welcome to join us and connect with your fellow PALS tutors!

Save the date: The next Sharing Circle will be our annual summer picnic on Thursday, August 15 in the evening (downtown park location to be announced). Food will be provided. Watch your emails for a personal invitation coming soon with all the details and to RSVP. Have some outdoor fun with your fellow tutors, PALS staff, and members of the PALS Board of Directors!

Tutor Connect

Tutor Connect allows you to connect 1:1 with a fellow tutor to ask questions, discuss ideas or get some advice. Choose from the list of 20 tutors who are willing to be contacted by a fellow tutor on the PALS website (Tutor Connect). You can choose a name from Math, Literacy/LELL or Digital and contact them through their email. Once you’ve made your first connection, you may decide together to continue virtually or by phone.

We send out quarterly surveys to the tutors listed on the Tutor Connect page. Thank you very much for your past feedback, and please watch for a new survey in early July.

Join YOUR Tutor Advisory Committee

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]
