Online Workshop: Get Creative with the Arts!
July 23, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
This online workshop is open to both active tutors as well as tutors completing our application process. The workshop, however, does not substitute for the mandatory in-person Tutor Training required of new applicants. Please refer to our event calendar to register for a Tutor Training.
Thursday July 23, 2015
In this workshop, you will learn arts activities — drawing from music, creative writing, and visual arts. Utilizing the arts in tutoring can create a more lighthearted environment that may reach unengaged students and provide them with ways to shine while they learn. The arts activities presented will reinforce skills and topics from language arts and math, integrating these subjects in fun and creative ways.
