Brock also has some words about a second common misconception about tutoring: Tutors aren’t students so they don’t understand what we’re going through. See what he has to say on this topic by reading below:

We Are Students Too

by Brock

This month at The Hub we are looking at some misconceptions about The Learning Hub and its services.  One of these misconceptions is that Learning Hub tutors are not students and have therefore never experienced what students go through.

As students, all we really want is to be understood.  While college is an awesome time in life full of fun amazingness, it can also be a time of stress and challenges.  The amount of work expected from us can simply be overwhelming.  The last thing we want to do is go sit in a tutoring session with someone who doesn’t understand what we are going through and be lectured about the oxford comma and weird math curves (Disclaimer: The Learning Hub staff do not and will not lecture students on anything, including the Oxford comma or curves.  We enjoy the Oxford comma as much as any other tutoring center, but lecturing is not our type.)

The point is, a lot of us tutors up at The Hub are students or were not too long ago. In fact, the only tutors up at The Hub are our two Writing Specialists, our Writing Coordinator, our Math Coordinator.  We understand what you are going through.  If you’re experiencing it, we have likely been there or are currently there with you.

We’ve stayed up all night writing papers, fueled by coffee.

We’ve lived on diets of ramen, pizza, and caffeine.

We’ve stayed up all night to watch through every episode of The Office for the fifth time instead of being productive, only to put on our best face for class the next morning.

And, on a more serious note, we’ve worked hard to balance academics with a personal life.  We’ve struggled through tough concepts and writer’s block.  We’ve worked through stress to accomplish assignments that we thought were impossible.  Whatever you are working through, we have likely been there at one point or another.

Having other students as your tutor is to your benefit!  Not only are most of us students, but we come from diverse backgrounds and majors.  We have worked on many assignments similar to what you are working on and can help guide you through the process using our own experience and knowledge.  Some may think that because we are students we will be judgmental if you are having trouble with an assignment.  The complete opposite is the truth!  Because we have worked through the same things, we want to help you get through the same thing and see you succeed!

On top of the subjects we tutor (math, science, writing, economics, and accounting), we also offer tutoring in academic skills.  These are tutoring sessions that can help you make your life as a student a little less stressful.  With our academic skills tutor, you can work on skills like time management, note taking, and studying strategies, among others.

So if you ever feel like this:

make an appointment at The Learning Hub.  Sometimes talking to someone who has been in your position is just what you need.

The Five Stages of Finals

by Alex

There have been many lists about the various stages of finals. At The Hub, we decided to make our own Harry Potter-themed list for your nerdy enjoyment.

  1. The Procrastination Phase

When finals begin, some students have a low key sense of confidence—that they can handle finals—that they’re ready and don’t actually need to study. But more often, students underestimate the time it takes to prepare for finals or want to put off studying as long as possible. This is the calm before the storm.

Regardless of your motivations, you should not be deceived. You should be studying. Not sleeping.

  1. Panic Mode

When the procrastination phase ends, it ends abruptly and swiftly. It’s when the realization hits you that you may have much more to do than you anticipated.

Panic comes in stages and in varying degrees. Some students may panic as if they’ve just heard news that there is, in fact, a troll in the dungeon.

Some students even have full on melt downs from too much stress.

We’d much rather you skip this phase and just move onto the next stage.

  1. Productivity

Often fueled by Panic Mode, the productivity stage allows you to take a deep breath, and calm down enough to start getting something done.

Getting to this stage is the most crucial part of succeeding during finals. If you can get through the first two stages, or even skip them all together, you will be in much better shape for your finals. You may not even have to pull all nighters!

  1. Grim Acceptance

There comes a point when you have done all the preparation possible. Sometimes, it may not seem like enough. Thus, we call this phase Grim Acceptance—the stage that allows you to finally stop studying and working and accept what you were able to complete, but it may not bring the relief you were hoping for.

  1. Actual Acceptance

Upon the completion of a final exam or turning in a final paper, actual acceptance arrives—you have done all you can and relief finally starts setting in. You get a spring in your step—a breath of fresh air—new found confidence that you have just conquered your finals.
