TLG Tutor Volunteer Satisfaction Survey Results

THANK YOU for taking the time to participate in this survey!

Tutor volunteers are an important component of TLG. Through volunteers we are able to provide invaluable support and enrichment to students by delivering educational sessions in literacy, numeracy and technological skills.

The purpose of the survey was to gain an understanding of how satisfied tutor volunteers are with the whole experience. In addition, the results will help us identify the challenges and opportunities related to this position and furthermore, will provide us possible direction for potential enhancements.  

Thanks to this survey, we were able to identify the need to provide a space to share, network and to keep knowledge and skills up to date. So, we are launching the Tutor Networking SessionsCome and join us!
