Dear Dish-It: Getting Bad Grades

Dear Dish-it,

In the past few weeks I’ve been getting bad grades. Should I talk to a teacher or just forget about it?

Dear justinbieberfan21,

You should DEFINITELY talk to a teacher about your bad grades. In fact, the best way to fix these kinds of problems is to get help from someone who really knows their stuff – and who better than a teacher? He or she may offer to stay with you after school to go over the things that you’re having trouble with. If your teacher is willing to do this, use the time to pick his or her brain about what you’re doing wrong and ways that you can improve. Whatever you do, don’t let another week go by without trying your best to fix this problem – you’ll just wind up being more lost than you feel right now.

Another thing your teacher may recommend is that you join an after-school homework, study or tutoring club. Your school may very well offer something like this, and it can be really helpful. Sometimes, kids can explain difficult concepts to other kids better than adults. You can also think about aksing your mom or dad if they’d be willing to help you out with your studies in the evening at home, or if they’d be willing to get you a tutor who could help you go over and better understand the things you learn in school during the day.

You're friends with certain people because you have the same tastes, most of the time, so that can include who you like.
