1. Tutoring is for the struggling student -
TRUTH : Everyone can benefit from tutoring at some point in their college career. We all learn differently and to assume we can learn all new concepts easily is not realistic. There are subjects that will challenge each of us. Tutoring can help you designate time to focus on one subject at a time, learn and practice study skills that will help you in all areas of learning. It's a great way to meet peers and spend time working toward common goals!
2. I Don't Have Time For Tutoring-
TRUTH : It's important to look at time and reflect about your efficiency. Committing to tutoring one to two hours a week could save you hours of cramming, only to not get the outcome you wanted. Cramming is also not helpful in long term learning of the material. Chances are this information is going to come up again and it is worth investing some time in learning it well the first time.
