Time is a very important tool to learning academic information efficiently. If you have been working with a tutor then you should be aware of the time that you spend in tutoring assistance. Most students and parents believe that the longer they are tutored; the more successful they will be in executing the output of information. Set your tutoring goals in advance and submit them to your tutor via the Wyzant email address. List the goals that you would like to accomplish in each session for up to two weeks at a time. Even if you and your tutor do not accomplish all the goals you set, you will still be proactive in your learning experience!
