Not a stellar student? How to do your best this year

 

 

I’m going into eighth grade and freaking out because I’m horrible in school. I want to be smart and try my best, but I always get bad grades. Do you have any tips on how to stay focused?

 

Dear School Stuck,

You can make the new school year your best yet. Sit toward the front, speak up in class, stay on top of assignments and strive to excel in at least one subject (English? Science? Art?). It sounds like you need a new strategy this year. Maybe your parents can hire a college kid as a “homework helper”? Do you need an adult math or language tutor? Or extra time with a teacher? Might you have a learning issue like ADD? Can you study in a library or set up a work space at home with a bright light and inviting desk? Invest in pens, highlighters and supplies, and kick off the new school year with a winning attitude. Instead of dreading the first day, plan ahead and make this your turnaround year.
