Skill Development Workshops


    Skill Development workshops are three-hour long sessions facilitated by TLC Advisors. Skill Development workshops are held every Intersession Week, and TLC Tutors are required to attend if they wish to work in the TLC the following semester. 


    The topics of the workshops are chosen by TLC Advisors to address common challenges experienced by the tutors throughout the semester. The Skill Development workshops advance tutors’ English or math content knowledge and develop tutors’ "soft skills" such as research, communication, problem-solving and others. Some examples of topics covered by previous Skill Development workshops are "Tutoring Nursing Math", "Basic Statistics", "The Art of Conversation: Strategies for Tutoring Conversation and Pronunciation", "Punctuation", "Issues with Verbs", "Reading Comprehension for Math/English" etc.
