The Tutor Advisory Committee (TAC) operates for tutors, by tutors. We have two ongoing programs:
What it is
The Sharing Circle is an opportunity for tutors new and old from all educational streams to meet, talk and exchange ideas.
When you attend a Sharing Circle you become a part of a community of tutors who strive to enhance the tutor and learner experience. Furthermore, your ideas, suggestions and comments help to shape the vision of programs and the educational material sourced by PALS coordinators.
Dates and Times
Meetings are hosted over video conference every two months with a once a year in-person meetup.
Please check your email for a personal invitation. Information on dates and times can also be found in the PALS newsletter.
What it is
Tutor Connect allows you to connect with a fellow tutor to ask questions, discuss ideas or get some advice.
How Tutor Connect can help you
- Whether you are a veteran tutor or recently began teaching, we all look for ideas and support to increase our skills as a tutor. Each of us has a variety of perspectives and backgrounds to offer.
- If you are looking for tutoring advice, want to understand your student better, or are looking to share some ideas, Tutor Connect is for you.
How it works
Choose from the list of tutors who are willing to be contacted by a fellow tutor on the PALS website (www.palsedmonton.ca – 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.
Join YOUR Tutor Advisory Committee
TAC meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm on Zoom.
