Start off the year by strengthening your own understanding of math! 

  • Increase your understanding of the Common Core Mathematics Standards’ Mathematics Practices;
  • Hear about what you can do to help your student(s) grow mathematically;
  • Participate in developing a conceptual understanding of a ‘big idea’ in elementary school mathematics.

This workshop is designed for all tutors who interact with students working with mathematics at the pre-high school level—especially in grades 4 through 8.  

Register by September 5th to reserve your spot! Refreshments will be served.
