Introduction:
Institutional program Tutoring School of Medicine, UNAM, allows tutors to support students. Time management is a fundamental aspect that allows knowing and guiding our youth students. The use of logbooks can help students plan activities and allocate time optimally. If students use the log correctly, athey always know which tasks are outstanding and make decisions easily, making the priority activities.

Method:
Students were invited to participate while they were in break time. They were asked to fill out a form. The form recorded the date, time, day, and the activity in a period of one week. Analysis of the data showed that the students manage their time similarly at campus, but different out of it. Males to get home, eat, watch TV, go out with their friends, girlfriends or studying; In contrast, women should do housework (66.6%) at the end of housework, they do other activities, including study. Therefore, female students work harder than their peers to achieve the same goal: accredit courses.
This confirms the findings of the experts as to the practices associated with gender inequality in our country. This inequity is the source of countless differences and conflicts in our society.

Conclusion:
Proper time management is essential for all students who want to optimize their learning. If student records its activities in a log book and tutor reviews the record, the tutor can analyze the habits of their students and the tutor can suggest modifications to their students’ habits. Studying a degree is a challenge, therefore, the student is required to make adjustments to various aspects, including time management. The domestic work done by female students is additional work to achieve the same educational goal than male peers. Therefore, from schools we must promote social adaptations to build an equitable society.
