Get tutored by someone who's not hot...if they're hot...you'll just get distracted...if they're not. Everything will work out. Also, if you're not organized, your grades won't be good...it sounds crazy, but it's true.
1. talk to your teachers, maybe they will help you. also by showing you care about your marks and your care about the course, your teacher could cut you some slack cause they know your at least trying 2. spend more time on home work and really try to complete it. 4. write down questions you have from the homework and ask your teacher about them next class 3. read the section of the text book you will be covering in class so that you will already have an understanding of whats going to be taught. if they dont tell you what section they are going to cover you can still try your best to follow along in the text book because usually the curriculum will be based off the text book 4. talk to friends/ study with friends in your class who are good at the subject you are struggling with, you can share notes and/or edit each others essays and what not 5. dont lose hope or get discouraged. if you want good grades you have to work for them. working for good marks sounds hard and time consuming (it is) but you will soon find that when you do a test and get a great mark because of all your hard work, you will feel so great and so motivated!
Get good sleep, take notes in class, study when you get home, write down what you need to learn or make it into a song. Also, try doing your homework RIGHT when you get home BEFORE playing games or whatever. Good luck!
-Study when you have a test or review material you have learned in school. -Eat healthy, go to bed early so you can stay awake during school. -Ask teachers for help on labs, homework ect. -If you have a counselor ask them how you can improve your grade. They should be able to help you out alot.
You are smart enough to know who has been a good teacher (cares for you) and which ones have not. Write a letter to the Coordinator of your year explaining you feel worried and you would particularly like (whichever teachers) next year and nominate say three you really cannot work with. They say the "squeaky wheel gets the grease", so draw attention to your needs and tell them outright.
Study hard, get good sleep, always eat breakfast before school (it really does help), pay attention in class :) Also try different ways of making stuff stick in your brain: make a song, make flashcards, whatever works! DON'T EVER PROCRASTINATE!!! i would know, lol. don't cram the night before a big test, you just forget everything in the morning. Whenever there is an extra credit opportunity, take advantage of it! your teachers will be happy that you are trying. If none of this works, talk to your teachers! it might seem scary, but they are here to help :)
extra credit---ask your teacher for some tests are typically a good chunk of your grade, and the human brain's memory function works best when sleeping, so study for a test just before you go to bed; and use cue cards---they work because of the brains automatic image-memory association.

Study and ask questions... A lot of questions. That way you will understand what is going on, be forced to pay attention, and your teacher will see that you care (even if you don't) which will raise your participation grade.
