Time Management & Study Strategies

A Tufts time management consultant discusses strategies with a student.
If you feel stressed, overwhelmed or have so much to do you don’t know where to start, you are not alone. Many have these same reactions to the academic challenges faced by Tufts students. Collaborate with a Time Management and Study Strategies (TM&SS) consultant to create more effective strategies and solutions based on your style and needs.


My TM&SS consultant has been one of the most understanding, considerate, and helpful people I have known. She has made a bunch of suggestions that have helped me through the year.
