Hey, Sorry I missed our tutoring appointment last week…things have been cRaZy!!! I’ve been super busy with my student organization and my off campus job. I haven’t had any time to study for my test which is in two days! I’m very behind and I’m struggling with the basics of the course. Ahh…help! When you can meet? I need to see you ASAP!! I’m available any time…even at midnight if that’s when you’re free! It’s not like I sleep much anyway haha. Maybe I should talk to a professional about that…I’ve been kind of depressed and been sick with mono. Anyway, please email me back right away. If you can’t meet, maybe you can just give me copies of your old tests which I’d be totally cool with!
