On March 11, 2017, Portland Literacy Council convened the 2017 PLC Tutor Conference on the Reed College Campus.
This conference supports volunteer literacy tutors by offering a forum to exchange ideas, develop new teaching strategies, and hone tutoring skills. Volunteer literacy tutors in the Portland Metropolitan area provide one-to-one and group tutoring sessions to adult learners.
“A lot of great ideas for the classroom, and most importantly, ways to adapt them to different levels.”
“Always something new with technology. Helpful and interesting.”
“It was all awesome – really – thank you! Where I volunteer, we teach the basics and here I felt I was learning how to teach gourmet style.”
“Wow, what a great time. Excellent flow, smooth organization, and friendly and clear delivery.”
“Excellent conference. Great opportunity to learn from tutors, presenters, colleagues.”
“My first time attending the conference. I will definitely be back next year! Thank you for a great experience!”
Thanks to these inspired and inspiring Presenters!
Thanks to these Workshop Assistants, Culture Exchange and Luncheon Speakers!
