Overcoming test anxiety

Monday - Thursday (8-5): Scheduled-Appointment Tutoring
A limited number of weekly appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be scheduled depending upon the requested course, your availability, and tutor availability. To fill out an application, come to the Tutoring Center in the Student Union Annex.
You will meet once a week for 45-50 minutes and may be placed in a small group of four students, all with the same instructor. It is is important that you come prepared with necessary materials, attempted homework, and questions.
If there is a conflict and you cannot attend, you may contact the Tutoring Center in advance at 985.549.2434 or by email at email@example.com. Our attendance policy states: After a total of three missed sessions (whether cancelled or no-show), all appointments will be cancelled in that course for the balance of the semester.
Friday (8-12): Drop-In Tutoring
Drop-in tutoring is available in pre-selected math, chemistry, and physics courses in the Tutoring Center.
