The basic tutor training today was informative, and not even boring. I was half working, half learning with the rest of everyone else. I won't actually be tutoring, but this was a way for me to learn about the resources tutors are going to ask me about, meet the tutors, etc. We learned a lot about the different ways that adults learn. I am NOT deficient because I don't know all that North South East West crap. I'm visual and analytical. I just learn differently than certain other people who may or may not have given me the huge bruise on my right side. We talked about different teaching techniques for adults as opposed to children, and alternative techniques for adults who can't capture concepts. We also talked about what to do in the first meeting, how to establish bonds, working towards the objectives the student wants to accomplish (getting their GED, reading their child's homework, getting their drivers license, to name a few). There's another session next Saturday that I'm even looking forward to.

Then I came home, and slept. For five hours. This job has really been wearing me out. I work constantly, and when I'm not working, I'm thinking about work. When I'm not doing either of those, I'm dreaming about work. Ridiculouso. But, my fair is coming together, piece by piece. Any Talleans that wanna volunteer for a couple hours the night of September 8th, please let me know!
