The SCC Learning Skills and Tutoring Center concluded a successful National Tutoring Appreciation Week on Friday, a week that included an information table, a pizza party for tutors, and the first Tutor Leadership Workshop of the semester on “Tutors Letting Go of Stress.” Tutors in attendance at the workshop shared the types of situations that give them stress, what they do to relieve stress, and what they do to defuse the stress of anxious tutees during a tutoring session. This topic related to the ACE (Actualize College Excellence) theme for the week, which was Stress Management.
