News from TAC – Check out the website!

The Tutor Advisory Committee (TAC) operates for tutors, by tutors. We have two ongoing programs:

Tutor Connect

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.

Sharing Circle

Every two months, tutors in all streams are invited to an informal group chat on Zoom.  The last Sharing Circle took place on October 26, and the topic was Tutoring as a Journey.  Some tutors who attended were brand new, others had decades of experience.  We asked questions, gave ideas, and suggested resources: did you know your learners can look at Spotify song lyrics in the language they are trying to learn?  All reading practice counts, including song lyrics!  

Share tips like these at a future Sharing Circle – put on by tutors, for tutors.  Watch your email for a personal invitation to join us in an upcoming month… we would love to see you!

Join YOUR Tutor Advisory Committee

TAC meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm on Zoom.
