If you want to get some help with your homework there are a few key places that you can turn:
You can get help from your teacher.Your teacher is actually your friend. And in spite of the gut feeling that they are only assigning you homework to watch you suffer, they really aren’t. They are there to explain concepts that you don’t quite understand, or give a bit of extra time to go over something that you missed due to an absence. There is no reason to shy away from asking one of the best resources that you have at your disposal. In fact, if you are feeling shy or apprehensive at all about raising your hand to ask for additional guidance or to go over more examples, you can always go to office hours or email your teacher asking for help.
Office hours a great thing designed by schools to ensure that students can meet with teachers outside of the classroom. Office hours provide students with a regularly scheduled time each week during which they can meet with their teachers, go over problems, review homework questions, ask any questions, look at samples, or just ask for guidance. You can drop by at any time during office hours or you can arrange for a private appointment. If you ask for a private meeting, you may be given a time scheduled outside of office hours, or you may have a meeting inside of office hours.
Tutors are a truly beneficial thing. In fact, nearly every academic institution has a writing center that is designed to help students with their writing skills and homework skills. The writing center is a place where you can often work with other students and teachers to get answers to your homework questions or work with another student on a project. These writing centers, like teachers, are there to help you succeed. You can drop by the writing center and get help from whatever student or teacher volunteers are present. You can also work with a private tutor at these centers. Some academic institutions offer free tutoring for students through these centers, wherein you can work with another student who aced the same course you are taking in a previous year. These students know the teachers, the teaching methods, and the course work. This enables them to offer a truly unique perspective and help you get the answers that you need.
