The description: We’ve all faced students who possess the cognitive abilities to succeed academically, but whose lack of engagement, motivation, or perseverance hold them back. There is no panacea for this, no simple answer to what looks like apathy.

Registration: Registration is available here through Eventbrite, with limited in-person tickets available. Tickets are free to current Community Classroom tutors and coaches. We are asking other participants to Pay-What-You-Can.

I felt an immediate trust in Megan’s expertise, as she patiently listened to me about my child’s needs and le... Read More
