How to Get Any Teacher to Like You

Updated on January 29, 2018

There are many different kinds of teachers, and for some, it might be almost impossible to change how they feel about you if you two had been off to a bad start. Notice how I said almost? Well, that is because nothing is impossible, and if anything can get your teacher(s) to like you more than they already do, it's this blog. Here are some tips you can use to accomplish your goal of being your teacher's favorite student, because c'mon, we all know they have one:

  • Raise your hand as often as possible, even if there is a possibility that your answer is wrong. Teachers love to see their students participating, as it shows some interest and enthusiasm into their lessons. Participating also allows you to interact with your teachers, which is a good way for them to get to know you and remember your good traits every time you walk into their classroom!
  • Participating in class does not mean that you should constantly socialize with your friends while your teacher is talking. In fact, you should definitely try to avoid doing so to your best ability. Not only is it disrespectful, but it tells the teacher that their lesson is boring and her/his words mean nothing to you, which is not something that you want your teacher to believe about you.
  • If you don't understand part of the your teacher's lesson, be sure to ask them questions! Your test grades reflect not only how you are as a student, but also on their teaching abilities, and your bad test grades can have have a negative effect on them, as their boss(your principal, or whoever is in charge of your school) can interpret the grade as such that they did not teach you well, especially if your teacher is new to the school, which would not look good on your behalf.
  • Be sure to complete all given work on time. Doing so shows that you are responsible and care about your grades, as well as the class.
  • Help your fellow classmates. You may think that lending someone a hand and helping them with a topic that they don't understand will go unnoticed, but trust me, that is not the case. Your teacher will definitely remember that time you explained even just one question to a friend, and will think of you as caring and helpful. As well as that, explaining it well shows that you listen to what she/he explains in class.
  • Keep good class notes. You can refer to these when necessary, and your teacher will see that you try in her/his class. This shows that you are determined, hard-working, and responsible- the traits of a good student.
  • Be honest with your teacher. If you forgot to do your homework, tell that to them. If it is your first time forgetting, they will understand and just tell you to bring it in next time. DO NOT say that you left it at home because that trick is already old and your teacher will know you're lying. The last thing you want them to think of you as is a liar, am I right?
  • Alway come in with a smile and maintain a good attitude during class. Seeing you always so eager to learn will cheer them up, and they will bring that positivity back to you.
  • Be a role model for your class. If your whole class is talking and not doing the work, stand out from the crowd and do what you are supposed to.
  • Do not try to suck up to teachers. Teachers know when you try to be very nice to them just so that they would give you good grades. Even though it might seem that they like what you are trying to do, they really don't appreciate the fake gestures because it seems like you are very selfish and not genuine, and they would like to get to know the real you, not the one that pretends to be nice and does things for their grades.
