Are you new to or considering group tutoring? In this workshop, tutor coordinator/tutor Chris Ruoff presents the group tutoring model in both shelter and school environments. He will introduce you to what to expect as well as discuss best practices, tools and resources, and how to prepare for success. At the end, Chris will introduce the Digital Learning Model and how it can be used to supplement traditional homework tutoring. This workshop is intended for tutors that are currently involved in group tutoring or are considering this as an option.
