11 Tutor Feedback Tutor 1) This is probably one of the biggest benefits of having workshops as part of what we do: the fact that it has benefitted ME. I, myself, am much more confident about my own tutoring and my own knowledge. Having to stand up and explain grammatical principles to entire groups of people has translated into my being more sound in both my delivery and my understanding in explaining it to the individual writer. Teamwork-wise, the teaching of workshops has brought us all together as colleagues. We laugh more, know one another more, and have learned to trust one another with the passing on and the receiving of the baton, so to speak.
