Try this at your next session with your tutor. Tell him or her, ' my number one priority today is to learn______. Second in importance is _____. Lastly, if there is time I'd like to go over ____." There is a reason your classes in school are anywhere from 45 minutes to 55 minutes long. There is a law of diminishing returns that essentially states that beyond a certain point each additional unit of time spent yields a smaller and smaller return on that time until eventually you are no longer reaping benefits at all. So, while you are alert and mentally rested at the beginning of a session, work on the topics that will help you the most followed by the ones of lesser importance. Keep in mind what you would like to get out of your tutoring sessions and let your tutor know too. In this way you can use your time and your tutoring to your best advantage.
