Tutoring Training: Personal Statements
We are getting an early start on personal statement tutoring this year! Next week, March 4-March 8, we will be working with Ms. Vlada's eleventh grade students at San Francisco International High School on their personal statements for fall 2013 college application deadlines. Since personal statements are such important and singular pieces of writing, we ask that all tutors attend a training with 826 Valencia first before sitting down with a student. If you plan to attend any of the sessions with Ms. Vlada's class next week, and you have not attended a personal statement training with us in the past, you must attend this one-hour training. If you are not planning to attend Ms. Vlada's project and/or you've been trained before and would just like a refresher, you are of course welcome to join us, too! We will cover the commonly used prompts, tips and strategies for helping a student find the right topic, and tried-and-true do's and don't's. We hope to see you there!
