How can I see you for extra help?
If you have a quick question, I can usually assist you at the time, but longer explanations require an appointment.I am flexible; appointments are IMPERATIVE to make sure that everyone can be accommodated. Extra help is available during the following times: During homeroom (with your Homeroom teacher's permission) in Room 18 (unless otherwise stated) After school in Room 18 (unless otherwise stated, but not on Mondays) During lunches, if no other time works (please see my schedule for locations)Back to Top
What is the best way to prepare for your quizzes and tests?
In order to succeed in life and in the classroom, it is best to make sure that you are in class on time, pay attention in class, ask questions, and review your notes each night so that you are not attempting to "pull and all-nighter."Extra help appointments should be made AS SOON AS you feel you are having difficulties or need a little extra time on a topic.Make sure to review your Study Guides for tests as soon as you receive it and not just the day before the test.Meet with classmates to hold a "study session." I would be more than happy to spend some time with you to supervise study session times and guide you through the material. Back to Top
What if I am having trouble with completing homework or a project?
Please make an appointment to meet with me to work through your questions or concerns. You may also email me with questions or concerns, however, your TOP PRIORITY is to show effort and make an honest attempt at any work, assignment, or project you are assigned. Of course, it goes without saying that beginning your work AS SOON AS IT IS ASSIGNED is the best policy. Procrastination is a "4-letter word" in our classroom!Remember, I am not the only one who you can turn to for help. Parents, guardians, classmates, siblings, and friends are a few other resources to assist you. Pick their brains; one day you might be able to return the favor!Take a break! Yes, I said it: TAKE A BREAK! Sometimes your brain needs a break from thinking through a problem or working around a mental roadblock. Do something active, work on another assignment, eat a healthy snack, talk to someone (for a SHORT TIME), watch TV (USE A TIMER SO YOU DON'T ZONE OUT), or some other activity that has little or nothing to do with your work. You may be surprised! You are capable of so much!Back to Top
