Frequently Asked Questions

If you hate a teacher,what’s one way you could deal with her/him?

Well, it’s wise to respect others around you; especially the ones you hate. Dealing with that one person you just want to strangle, is difficult, but battling him/her will only make your class worse. You should also try to get to know your teacher, maybe you two are starting off the wrong foot. You can’t judge a book by it’s cover unless you check it out. 🙂

What’s the best way to raise your grades?

Teachers always offer extra credit or makeup tests. Sometimes they accept homework that is a day late. There are many ways to raise your grade, just ask “What can i do to improve my grade?” and you should be able to succeed.

If you hate a class that you got put into, and it’s too late to switch out, is there a possible way that you could get out of it?

Well if you failed to take the opportunity to switch out of your hated class, you may have to just try to survive. Here are some tips on taking this horrible subject of yours: Be organized, have notebooks, highlighters, or any supplies that you may need, take good, easy-to-read notes, and ask for help if you struggle. The most important tip I have for you is to believe in yourself!

I have this this friend that drives me nuts every day. I don’t want to be a bad friend and ignore her or just nod my head. I also don’t want to tell her how I feel. It might hurt her feelings. What should I do and say?

Well it depends on how she’s driving you nuts. If she’s being disruptive in class, or being rude, then you should talk to her and let her know what she’s doing. If it’s something small, like poking you, or talking too much, then just tell her “Sorry, I can’t talk right now.” or something like that. It’s great you don’t want to be rude, but don’t let them push you around, and bother you. Remember to be strong, but sweet. 🙂

Sometimes after lunch, I have two friends that I walk with. These two friends don’t like each other. So one wants to go a certain way, and the other wants to go another way. One of them pulls you along from the other one to go her way to class. But really, you wanted to go with both of them. I don’t want to be mean and say what was on my mind. That may cause me to lose one of those friends. What do I do and say? I’m I going to end up having to say something? What do I do next? Do I just have to deal with her/him?

If you are being pressured by one of your friends, you don’t have to put up with it! If she was a real friend, she wouldn’t be so pushy. Be assertive, and if she stops being your friend, then it’s for the best. You should choose the one you want as a friend. 🙂
