Tips for Best Student in the class
Ask for help
You might think that asking your teacher for help will make them mad because it makes you look stupid. This couldnt be further from the truth. Asking for help actually makes you look smart and it will make your teacher happy. When you ask questions, your teacher knows that youll work hard and understand what theyre teaching much better. Theyll be proud of you for taking the initiative to get the help you know you need.For example, if theres a math test coming up in a few weeks and you know that you didnt understand how dividing fractions works very well. Ask your teacher if they can go over the instructions with you one more time and do two or three problems with you until you understand it.
Say something like, Mr. Green, Im having a hard time with the homework. For some reason, genitive case is just really hard for me to get. Can we maybe meet after school or during lunch, so you can try explaining it in a different way.
