Guideline for Students


7. Talk to the Teacher


  1. If language is a problem for communication, you should let your teacher know. Don’t wait for mid-term assessments.
  2. If you need help with homework, tell your teacher. He/she may find the appropriate homework tuition group for you.
  3. Follow your teacher’s advice on how to learn; simultaneously let your teacher understand how you prefer to learn and what you consider more effective.
  4. If you cannot afford the materials/equipment for the class subjects, talk to the teacher. She/he is part of a wider network that may help you out.
  5. Personal problems such as health issues and housing problems can also be communicated to your teacher, because she/he will know who to pass the information on.
  6. It is also important to talk to your class teacher and parents when you feel you do not belong or that you are not smart enough to succeed. This means that you are not correctly integrated and this can be solved.
  7. If your parents have given you the task to supervise your younger siblings in school, make sure the class teacher and headteacher know this, for they can be helpful and flexible to accommodate your and your siblings’ needs.
  8. Do not be discouraged; stay motivated in case of failure.
  9. Call the educational team and aid servicers in case of difficulties (in several countries you may have a series of services you can use that support your learning).
