Full Word-for-Word Transcription

Hey everyone, Alexis here, Prepped and Polished. Now, students come to me
with Bs, Cs, and even Ds and don’t really know how to take their grades to
the next level. Here are three ways to get an A.Tip one is to pay attention during class. You want to take notes during
class and if you need to refresh your note-taking skills, I suggest taking
a summer note-taking course. Now do you have to jot down everything the
teacher says during class? No, you don’t. Just come up with an outline, one
that you can refer to later.

Tip two is do your homework. Not only to improve your homework grade but
also to better prepare yourself for tests and quizzes. And if you really
want to get an A, learn to love to do your homework. Now you do this by
setting up incentives for yourself for completing your homework. So get
yourself a snack if you finished your math homework on time or go to a
movie on Friday if you got everything done on Thursday. And if you’re a
slower learner, you’re going to have to put in more time to get an A on
your homework. For example if you have two chapters to read in your US
History book, you’re going to have to re-read those chapters and take notes
if you’re a slow processor.

Tip three is get on your teacher’s good side. Now I’m not saying put a
fresh red apple on your teacher’s desk each and every day. That could hurt
your grade. What I’m saying is try to earn your teacher’s respect. You do
this by coming prepared to class and participating in class. Now do you
come prepared to class? By doing your homework. Doing your homework, you’ll
come armed with questions, your teacher will appreciate that you’re
participating.

And also go to your teacher’s office hours from time to time. You’re
teacher will appreciate that you’re showing initiative. Don’t be a negative
distraction during class, have a positive, enthusiastic attitude and I
ensure you that your teacher will reward you with the best grade you have
received so far. So good luck on your grades and I’ll talk to you soon.

Which of these three tips do you find most important for getting A’s in school? What are some other ways to get an A?

Post your tips/comments below.
