Join us for an evening with expert educators Abby Freireich and Brian Platzer to discuss their recently published book, Taking the Stress out of Homework, which addresses a range of common frustrations caused by homework. Drawing on extensive experience as classroom teachers, advice columnists for The Atlantic and co-founders of Teachers Who Tutor | NYC, Abby and Brian will provide actionable advice about how to help your children build executive functioning and content skills. They will offer stress-reducing best practices so that homework not only supports what kids are learning, but also helps build confidence and skills that last a lifetime.
Whether your child's stress point is executive functioning - the ability to plan or organize - or a subject-specific struggle, Abby and Brian will share real-life stories to provide individualized, actionable advice and answer the most pressing questions on every parent's mind: How much should I get involved, what does constructive help look like, and how can I help my child work independently?
You can order a copy of the book here.
