I don't know how to feel about my maths teacher, /sci/. I feel like he's actually holding me back more than helping me. He's the 'funny guy' type teacher, and while he genuinely is funny, I think he isn't doing nearly enough work. I only have about six months to my exams, like.
He gets into slagging matches with students a lot, and he doesn't get enough maths done. My maths skills are poor enough as it is. When he's actually doing maths he's quite good at explaining it, but he laughs and jokes too much.
I don't know what to do, /sci/. I don't think he's getting through the course fast enough and I'm too nervous to tell him to get on with it.
What do I do, /sci/?
TL;DR Maths teacher laughs and jokes too much. What can I do to make him get on with it?
I still need his help for stuff, anon. Sometimes the book doesn't explain a concept well enough, or else I get stuck on a past exam paper question.
I'm getting really sick of the 'laugh joke' thing. I put on a front that I'm enjoying it (though I do genuinely laugh once in awhile), but I'm too nervous/scared to say anything.
I don't know what to do.
what the fuck.
are you 15?
If the instructor falls behind his schedule he will pick up the pace, it's his responsibility. You won't be tested on things he doesn't teach. Why the fuck are you complaining about something like this at all? If all else fails just do >>7783876 and if you're too much of a child to do that then talk to him after class for extra help. You can't expect an instructor to babble on unnecessarily, just to rephrase a concept enough times for you to understand, rather than fill the time with light-hearted jokes. If you are having a tough time, take some fucking responsibility.
on a side note
>I only have about six months to my exams, like.
do you realize how stupid you sound ending your questions with
I lose all respect for a person that does this
He does not make the exam, the state does. At least here in Ireland they do.
Therefore, everyone in the country gets the same maths exam depending on what level they're doing. This means that we'll be examined on the full course, no matter how much of it we have done.
I'm 18, actually, dummy.
