Why do you like your teacher

sofatutor magazine student

Did you not pay attention or be late on Monday morning and you're already through with the teacher downstairs? A solution is needed. We'll tell you here how you can get out of a mess with the teacher.

Clarify the cause

First of all, you should be clear about whether your teacher really doesn't like you anymore. How do you fix that? Is he or she behaving unfairly and hatefully towards you? Or did he or she just have a bad day and was therefore a bit snotty at that hour?

If you are sure that your teacher is suddenly treating you differently and appears hostile to you, ask yourself why:

With fun to learning success - that's how it's done

What did you do? Is it really one of the reasons above? Did you do the wrong thing or make fun of the teacher? Were you cheeky or cheeky in class and bothered your classmates? Has your teacher admonished you several times and you continued anyway?

Understanding of the teacher ?!

Once you know the cause, you may find yourself recognizing yourself for the first time: the teacher may have every reason to be mad at you. After all, he or she is only human and feels attacked if you say something against him or her. Several factors always come together in such situations. The teacher may not have been able to sleep late on the weekend and still has to be fit again on Monday morning and you allow yourself to sleep in a bit. That just pisses him off. Is also understandable somewhere.

Nevertheless, you have to be very clear that the teacher is not okay. is to take out bad moods on students. Nor should he or she be resentful or mistreat you for being late. But teachers are not perfect either and you should be aware of that. Just as you are mad at your classmate if he or she lied to you or at the girls when they whisper about you behind your back, the same is true of the teacher. He or she is also unsettled when everyone suddenly giggles. He or she is also annoyed when he or she tries hard in class and someone is constantly disturbing.


So there is only one solution for now: You have to change your behavior and show the teacher that you can do better. If there is a specific reason why your teacher suddenly gives you the cold shoulder, go to him or her and apologize. Preferably after class, when everyone is no longer in the room and you can both talk openly. If the teacher realizes that you understand your mistake and want to improve, he or she is sure not to hold grudges.

However, if you do not know exactly what you are doing now or are simply afraid to talk to the teacher about it, then plan B comes into play: Gluing. Give your best. Come on time, or maybe five minutes earlier. Don't nonsense in between, but rather answer a question and contribute to the classroom. You will find that the teacher changes his or her mind again if you can convince him or her that you are a good student. Just show interest in his class. Ask extra questions, don't just do exercise 1 a-c for your homework, but work through to f. How can he be angry for a long time?

I did not do anything

Unfortunately, there is also the case that a teacher doesn't like you for no logical reason. You are quiet, you listen, and you always do your homework carefully. You actually like the teacher and have never been naughty. And yet, he or she can't get rid of you. It does exist. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do about that. Here again applies: Teachers are only human. You just can't like everyone equally and always be fair. Teachers also have their opinions about you, which they cannot always withhold. It's really not fair, but it can happen.

In this case, ask your parents to speak to the teacher. But you should think carefully beforehand, because teachers are usually very convinced of themselves and don't like it when parents or students question them. That just creates more trouble. You still have to get along with the teacher, after all, she or he will also evaluate your work and classwork. In this case only one thing helps: Withstand. Or, if possible, speak to a trusted teacher and possibly change classes.


If several teachers have a problem with you, it is obvious that you are not completely uninvolved in it. In such a case only one thing helps: eyes shut and go for it. If a teacher absolutely cannot be convinced that you can do better, then you just have to endure it. Concentrate on the subjects that suit you and on the teachers who have no problem with you. And let me tell you one thing for your next teachers:

It is better not to get into the situation in the first place and to be an exemplary student from the start.
