For most of us, there is always that one subject in school that we just can’t master. The most common is math! While it may not be easy, there is a way to do well in that subject.. depending on how hard you try.

Prepare yourself for the subject. Buy all the supplies you need for the class, and decide a time each night to set aside to focus on the subject. For example, for math class, you would buy a geometry set, a calculator, a ruler and a notebook.

  • When you are in class, focus. Take detailed notes, and ask for extra help. If you don’t understand something, write down what you don’t understand, and stay after class to get help. The biggest problem teens make in class is not getting the help they need.

Do your homework. It actually will help you get the hang of the work being done in class. While excessive amounts aren’t usually necessary, a few pages a night won’t kill you.

Set aside a set time to study. At that time you set aside at night, read over your notes. Try doing a few practice questions, or even reading it aloud to help yourself memorize it. The more you do it, the less it will seem like work.

Remain positive. Be optimistic and work hard! You won’t get anywhere by being negative and slacking off. Doing well requires hard work! 

Give yourself a reward. Once you achieve your goal, be sure to reward yourself.
