Turning Obstacles into Opportunities

This workshop was an open discussion where School on Wheels tutors could discuss problems, learn from mistakes, and work towards solutions. Many common obstacles like teacher and parent communication, motivating and encouraging your student, and how to balance homework with filling in the gaps. The discussion was facilitated by School on Wheels Education and Training Coordinator Natasha Bayus, Ventura Coordinator Linda Huddle, and Ventura Charter School Director Mary Galvin. Mary also provided an overview of Charter Schools, and some general tips to help students and families connect with their school and teachers.
