As a student, the thought of going in for extra help has a very negative connotation. But fun fact: getting extra help is a good thing.
Getting extra help is smart and will benefit you in the long run. Not only do you get help, but you get to know your teacher or professor on a more personal level and that will help you in the end as well. I'm not saying teachers have a bias toward favorite students, but teachers have a bias toward favorite students.
Just because you are going in for extra help in a class does not give you the right to call yourself dumb. Getting extra help shows you care about school and about grades and about being successful. In the real world, you are going to have to ask your boss for help with something, but that doesn't mean you're dumb. School is the same way. A good student, just like a good employee, will ask for help no matter what, because you want to be successful and continue to learn and grow.
I have gone in for extra help so often that it shows in my grades. My grades have improved as have my confidence in course material. There is nothing worse than going into a test or an assignment and not feeling confident. Confidence is such a great feeling and getting extra help is the secret to educational confidence.
I'm not saying that in order to be successful you must get extra help, but if you're struggling the tiniest bit it might be a good idea to get that extra help. Good students get extra help — don't ever forget that.
School is not easy and can be very stressful but having the option to get extra help in a class is such an incredible thing for it will positively benefit you in the long run — I promise.
