Linda, I don't know what your tutoring time is, but I have a great time management activity that is very eye-opening! Challenge students to track what they do in 15 minute increments for three (or more) days! Ask them to carry a notebook and pen with them everywhere and every fifteen minutes record the time and what they are doing. Or they can list the time in fifteen-minute increments and fill in what they are doing as they go. Then ask students to share what they spent the most time doing. I also have information about four ways people spend time if you are interested in having students analyze how they spend time. I have done this exercise with my composition classes right before assigning the research paper to give them a real sense of planning and to halt procrastination. I also keep a log myself and share it with my classes! it's a hoot!

It requires that a husband and wife should be as garments for each other. Just as garments are for protection, comfort, show and concealment for human beings, so should husbands and wives be for one another.
