How To Be A Successful Student while On Campus

How to Be a Successful Student When on Campus at MiraCosta College

MiraCosta College has and  amazing staff and professor. I have said this in a lot of my posting, the reason is because it is true. MiraCosta go extra miles to help their students succeed. So  what do students do to be success ?!?

Be In Class and On Time:  As a student it is very important for you to be in class and on time. If you come to class late there is a high chance for you not to understand what the teacher will be saying through out that class. Not attending class is even worst. When you don’t attend a class it is difficult for you to understand what subject and that can lead to a bad grade. You don’t want that to happen. But most teachers understand that you can be sick or something. If you miss a class for what ever reason this is you next step…..

Go For An Office hour  If you  miss a class or need extra help on an assignment go to your teacher’s

“Office hour” Every Miracosta student get the opportunity to meet one on one with your professor to ask him/her any question you might have about the class or if you did not understand something. You don’t have to pay for it and this helps all the shy student who can not ask their question in class to ask it during the office hour. This also helps your teacher to know your difficulties and work with you to solve them. I understand that some students can be scared of their teachers, which you don’t have to be but if that is the case for you. I got a solution for you

Go for tutoring: In most counties and even in some schools here in the US, students pay in order to have a tutor help them. (A tutor is someone that helps to explain things that you did not understand in class and can also help with your assignment but they will not do it entirely for you this). MiraCosta College has tutors available for all subjects. Tutors are usually students just like you. The college has both online and in-person tutors. They help you with your questions and assignments. They help you with you assignment or questions. Yes I know I said it two time, because I want to make it clear that they will not do your assignment for you but they will help you with it. On line tutoring is available even at night.

If you go to class on time, do all assignments, go for office hours and go for tutoring you are bound to have an ” A” in that class.
