Why did I not make a good great? I studied, what went wrong? Studying starts with proper note taking. If you are studying for a class that has equations you will want to memorize these and do practice problems so that you know how to use them properly. Maybe make a chart on the equations you have learned. If the class has a textbook you can reread sections or look over any handouts you complete or where given. Reread your notes many times. Do not just have one cram session the night before. Instead take an hour or so each day to go over the important things for that class. If anything is confusing then ask your teacher, use Google, reread your notes or textbooks to see if you can understand them. Sometimes it will take a few times of reading something to fully grasp the concept being presented.
Public school teachers often have open class hours either before or after school go to these if you, too. If you are homeschooled you can ask your teacher anytime and I am sure they will be willing to explain things further or review whatever you need. If you need more practice on things then ask your teacher for some. If you would like them to go over a lesson again ask. If you are reading a book for class or reading one to do a book report on a good idea when reading is to make annotations. If you do not want to write in the book or are not allowed then get some post-its and write your notes on those and put them in the book. This way you can quickly look back on what you read and know what happened, main ideas, plot points, etc. A lot of people think that homeschooler do not study but this is simply not true. Our daughter studies even though she does not realize it because she is 6. I randomly review the things we have gone over. What are some tricks you learned when studying that you would like to add?
