FOR ALL TLC MEMBERS

MEETING SCHEDULE – 2019-2020
To find out when and where your on-campus meetings are this year, check the Tufts Literacy Corps Fall Schedule – 2019-2020.

DISTRICT CALENDARS:
You are responsible for keeping track of the dates and logistics related to your tutoring. All schools in Medford and Somerville have “early release” days periodically on Wednesdays, for example. If this might conflict with your normal tutoring schedule, please make sure you write it down in your calendar.

Unlike previous years, there is only one journal assignment other than general writing and reflection on your sessions. Please click on Tutor Introductions to learn more.  (If you wrote this essay last year, there is no reason to do it again – unless you want to!)
