My new teacher's methods don't suit me, what should I do?

  • 0 votes

So yeah, I've moved on to A2 Geography which has lead to a new teacher who I really don't seem to be learning anything with. Unless anyone can come up with anything else, the only option I have it is try and teach myself and hope something sinks in.

Anyway, the exam board is AQA and I have the Nelson Thornes textbook so I'm just wondering if anyone has any other resources to recommend?

hey, 

Surprisingly, I had the same problem with my Physics teacher and believe me you dont want to ignore the problem because it will have a significant impact on your exam results....Simply go to the teacher at the end of the lesson and explain that the learning style isnt really effective and (obviously, say it like you mean it,...in a nice manner than shouting at him) and say what really helps you. If not, send him a nice email addressing the problem. 

By hoping you will learn everything for yourself and relying on a textbook is taking a big risk...especially if you are doing your A2 exams in your last year of college, when you have a teacher who can teach you it thoroughly 

hope it was useful :)
