In this workshop, experienced tutor John Reece will present creative ideas for group and 1-on-1 tutoring. Often, students do not have homework or may be reluctant to do homework or more traditional lessons. An innovative, fresh approach to target student interests and get them engaged can make a world of difference. This workshop is appropriate for tutors working with students of any age.
About the Presenter: John Reece is a retired sailor, having spent 20 years in the US Navy during and after the Vietnam era. He is also a retired Aerospace Logistics Engineer and Manager of Technical Publications and Training. Since his retirement he has been focusing on improving his public speaking skills with Toastmasters and looking for ways to help young people with their schoolwork, particularly with math.
