During the school year students may find they need help with one or more subjects. It is important to ask for help before more time passes and it is “too late”. Remember, the #1 item that college reps and employers care most about are your class grades. Grades are a reflection of focus, dedication, perseverance, and effort. It is not a sign of weakness to ask a teacher, a peer, or a parent for assistance.
Academic Tip: Students, it is very important that you check your e-mail at least once a day, every day. This is the method that most educational and professional groups communicate, including our own. Many adults communicate in this manner, so as you become more adult-like, you should also master e-mail. This is a positive habit that will allow you to keep up with deadlines, events, etc. so you don’t miss out on anything important.
