Tutor Training Workshop Was a Great Success!
Like a tidal wave came the applications from volunteers who wanted to attend our March 2017 Tutor Training Workshop. We had trouble keeping our balance with the tasks of responding to the registrants, preparing the binders, accounting for the fees, setting up the Fellowship Hall for FORTY attendees, assigning students to the new tutors, and all the many other details that go into conducting the training (yes, the microphone did work!).
There was a great deal of energy in the room. A large percentage of the participants held advanced degrees or had teaching experience (or both). Others had no teaching experience and were looking for all the guidance and tips they could get.
For the first time ever, we had to take the group photo in two pictures!
