May 18 – Semi-Annual Tutor Meeting – Lunch with the HLC Board – 12:30 p.m. – 2
Location: North Tampa Branch Library, 8916 N. Boulevard, Tampa 33604
All active HLC tutors are invited to come to our semi-annual morning workshop and/or afternoon meeting, taking place this time at the North Tampa Library. Paul Suppicich will show you how to bring more real life materials into your tutoring practice. Many of you already enjoy creative and relevant tutoring, others are novices, but all of you should find something to add or to share in this session.
After a break to gather sandwiches and treats, you’ll have a chance to talk with Literacy Council Board members about experiences and concerns in tutoring. We’ll finish up with a look at the new Library Website and answer any question you may have about navigating the new Catalog. North Tampa has a well-stocked Adult New Reader (ANR) collection, and we’ll have additional ESOL and Basic Literacy Materials you can check out to take with you.
The library is on North Boulevard, half a block south of Busch. From the traffic light at Busch you’ll see a small shopping plaza on the corner, then a railroad crossing next to the library. Chamberlain High School is diagonally across Busch.
