Guide to: Making friends with your teacher


If you want a good grades then listen up! If you follow these rules you will be more than ready for the working world. Successful individuals work hard and most importantly they make connections with the right people. In this case , your teachers being the “right people”, have the most control of your academic life. This is especially true in classes that are subjective such as writing classes (English) and art classes.

1.Memory Game

The first step in becoming friends with your teacher is getting them to remember who you are. One of the easiest ways to do this is by sitting in either the front row. Being in their line of vision means you will be the first person they become familiar with. You can also achieve this by being an active participant in class, this means being vocal during discussions and volunteering to write on the board. You want to paint the image of a hard working student.


2. Attention 

To show your teacher that you are a studious student make sure you get to class on time. Showing up a couple of minutes early won’t hurt either. Be sure to give your teach your undivided attention as the they go over the lessons, This shows that you are interested in learning the material. Whenever they have an office hour you should attend it! Teachers will take interest in any student who has an interest in their class. Teachers will eagerly work with you to achieve the grades you want. Some teachers will even grade you based on your own ability, rather than the ability they think college/high school age students should have, because they see you doing your best in their class.


3. Share Academic Goals

At this point you should have gotten pretty close to your teacher. The last thing I recommend is sharing your academic wants with you teachers. Let your teacher know what grade you wish to get in their class and maybe the obstacles you have to get over to get there. Doing this will not only bring you closer to your teacher, but help you get closer to your goal grade by working with them to get it.
