TUTORING INFORMATION

Alyssa (TECHAlyssaC), Information Technology Management

Alyssa's Tip! "Time management skills are essential to tackling procrastination. For example, taking the initiative to create a to-do list can help organize your thoughts and help you fight the urge to put things off. I make it a mission on Sundays to create a new to-do list for the week to keep me focused on what I need to accomplish." 

Connor (TECHConnorW), Software Application Development

Connor's Tip! "Learn how you learn, it will change your life. Once I developed methods of study and motivation that are tailored to me, the confidence that I have in my ability to learn and overcome boundaries is greater than I ever thought possible. Also, when I am struggling with motivation, I choose something that I know I can complete in a short amount of time. That quick win helps give me the motivation to move onto something slightly larger. I keep working up this ladder of gaining wins until finally, that huge project I've been stressing over doesn't seem so huge anymore."

Larry (TECHLarryG), Information Technology

Larry's Tip! "Trust your gut. Cramming before a test is ineffective; have faith in your resources. Keeping resources organized and readily available improves our ability to find answers more efficiently. Continually seek improvement by cherishing feedback. Take a moment to reflect and be proud of your accomplishments. Do not be intimidated; nothing is more intimidating than someone who is taking on a work, school, and home schedule!"

Deana (TECHDeanaA), Software Application Development

Deana's Tip! "Organization is the key in life. Having your schedule organized and planned out creates a calming atmosphere because you are not running around trying to find your missing puzzle pieces. Organization increases performance, productivity, and the ability to handle stress like a pro!"
