The simplest way to get loads of studying help is to communicate with your teacher or lecturer one on one. This will give you a much clearer understanding of what you need to do.

Go and talk to them:

The important thing to remember is your teacher or lecturer is the one who will be marking your work. This means their thoughts and opinions are well worth listening to. The vast majority of the time, if you go and speak to them one on one they will give you lots of useful information.

Generally, they will appreciate that you’ve made the effort to speak to them. It shows you are interested and want to learn. At the end of the day it is their job to educate you.

Get all the information you need:

As you read up on your subjects make a list of questions of things you are unsure about. Then you can take that list of questions to your teacher/lecturer and have a chat about them.

This should hopefully clear up any areas you are not sure about, and help you with exam revision. All in all it should make you feel less stressed and more confident.

This kind of one to one studying help will give you a richer understanding of the subject matter. However make sure you have done your reading before you talk with them otherwise they will just tell you to go and read the book.

Find a quiet moment:

It’s a good idea to speak to your teacher/lecturer at the end of the day, or when they are not busy. If they have more time to talk they can give you more information.

Cheeky questions:

Don’t be afraid to ask bold questions, like for example, will we need to revise this for the exam? Sometimes they are allowed to tell you what topics will come up. At the end of the day if you don’t ask you don’t get. The worst thing they can do is say ‘sorry I can’t tell you that’.

It’s their job to educate you:

Sometimes the teacher/lecturer may be too busy to talk. However be persistent try to make an appointment at another time.

If you are at university you are paying their wages. They are the service provider and you are entitled to speak to them. If you're at school it is a state provided service that you will one day have to pay tax for, so get your monies worth now.


This type of one on one studying help is a very useful resource. It will also help you develop practical communication skills. All in all it will help you to get as much out of your education as possible.
