Prepping for final exams
Why you should consider working with a tutor
What does exam week look like for you? Do you pull an all-nighter, surrounded by class notes, cue cards and take out boxes, with your roommate or parents reminding you to start studying earlier next time? Perhaps you’re a B+ student, looking to push yourself to the next level. Don’t wait until the last minute to start prepping for exams! Instead, start preparing in advance, improve some aspects of your routine to ensure you feel calm and confident when the week of exams and final assignments rolls around.
