Friday, May 7, 3 PM – 4 PM

Join Chase Selby (West Los Angeles College) and Giselle Miralles (Pasadena City College) for this presentation that will address the issue of judgement within the tutoring space and institution in general and ask how learning assistance providers can make tutoring a judgement-free zone. This workshop is designed for peer educators (tutors, mentors, coaches, and SI leaders), but all are welcome!

For an extended conversation, participants are also invited to stay for an optional discussion session from 4:00 to 4:30 to continue exploring the questions (and solutions) raised during the presentation and their application in learning assistance/tutoring centers.
