Naomi says, “I plan ahead, and I prioritize the ones that are more important, such as assignments that are due earlier.” She added, “If the teacher provides a rubric, you should review it to avoid losing any points.” Another one of her tips is to discuss with your teachers about your mistakes so that you can fix your errors and improve. Naomi also explained that following instructions carefully can also make a difference. One other suggestion she gave was, “Teamwork is important for a successful project and an excellent score.”


Tips from a hardworking person like Naomi can help all students who are struggling. Planning ahead and prioritizing assignments is the first step. With consistent effort, you can get the grades you would like to earn.
