Meet our New Tutors Trained in Term 1, 2020

13/04/2020 15:15:55

Meet our newest OLT Tutors who were trained in Term 1, 2020. By now, most of you will have met your respective Tutors, either virtually or Face to Face. They work really hard to make your OLT learning experience memorable and we hope that you feel inspired to do a few more OLT courses in Semester 2, 2020. Our OLT Tutors each have other demands within their various workloads (including travel for some and school-based activities for others) we appreciate the time and effort they commit to facilitating cohorts. We owe them a MASSIVE 'thank you'! Without our Tutors, we would not be able to offer so many cohorts and such varied topics.

The new tutors trained in February and their roles are: Rachel Brindal – Education Advisor: Hearing; Judy Chesson – SET Bakewell Primary; Cheryl Edward - Psychologist with Catholic Education and Rosita Kandiah – Teaching & Learning Officer: EAL/D. These turors are Darwin based.

Two new tutors were trained in March and are Alice Springs based. These tutorars and their roles are: Lisa Scarfe – SET Bradshaw Primary and Kristylee Barnes – SET Ross Park Primary.

A further three new tutors tutors were trained in arly April and are also Darwin based. These three new tutors and their roles are: Kate McNeil – SET, Sanderson Middle School; Jaylene Kellam-Stock – Senior Teacher, QTL Reporting and Performance Capability and Main (Charmain) Scoggins – SET Nightcliff Middle School.

All of our new tutors are looking forward to working with the participants in their cohorts. Some of our new tutors have already begun tutoring their course, while others are preparing to tutor their course, but all are looking forward to working with their cohorts.

Our Team welcomes you all and hope you enjoy sharing your experiences with your colleagues.

If you are interested in becoming a Tutor, please email and we will contact you to discuss your options.
