Tutoring at the Wizard's Wardrobe after school program

We will be holding training for tutoring for our one-on-one after school program on Saturdays Sept. 16 & 23. Students come twice a week for 1 1/2 hours each time. We stress reading, writing, creative thinking. Our training is done over two Saturdays and will include awareness of our own biases, what stress does to the brain, methods of engaging students that live in poverty, as well as specific reading and writing techniques.
