News from TAC – Welcome to Summer!

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 attended the PALS Diversity in Literacy Conference on May 25th in our green TAC scarves. We hosted an in-person Sharing Circle and had lots of friendly discussion about technology in tutoring, learner evaluation, and useful tips and resources.  Thank you for coming by.  It was great to meet you!

TAC offers two ongoing programs for all PALS tutors:


Sharing Circle

Every two months, TAC invites tutors in all streams to an informal group chat.  We suggest a topic for discussion, and tutors gather to 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: PALS will host our annual summer picnic on Thursday, August 15 in the evening (location to be announced).  Please come join us to meet your fellow tutors for food and fun!


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 Math, Literacy/LELL 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.

We have recently sent out a survey asking about your experience with the program over the past three months.  Thank you very much for your feedback!  Another quarterly survey will come to you in 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.
