If you start having trouble in school this year. Go to the teacher. If you are turning in all the work, and it is evident that you are trying your hardest, they will be glad to help you. However, don't just go and say "help me":
1. Try and grasp the material by yourself. If you don't understand it, than know what you don't understand. They can't help you if they don't know where to start. If its math, and you don't understand the steps and which order they go in, explain that to them. If its history, and you don't understand how an event correlates to the past and present, tell them so.
2. Don't just waltz in. Ask them after class if there is a day that you could come in after school and get help with the material. Teachers have lives also, so make sure it is in check with there schedule as well.
3. Be prepared. Bring all your class materials, work you have already done, and things you need help on with you. Show them examples of where you get confuzed. The easier you make it on them, the faster they will be able to help you.
If asking a teacher doesn't help, go to the guidence office. Many schools offer tutoring options to help students in need. They can help you find a tutor that will meet your needs.
You can also ask your mother for help. If she realizes how hard your school work is, then maybe she will understand your need for a tutor.
You could put an offer on Craig's list telling what you need. You could ask the special education office at your school to provide someone to help. You may get a college student who is studying to be a teacher to help you. Maybe another student at your school is really good in the subjects you need help in and you are good in another activity and your could trade help. Ask your mother, why she is shirking her parenting duties by making you figure it out yourself. Where is her responsibility to her child?
Talk to one of your teachers at school. If you were a good student in their class, they may offer to tutor you for free or reduced price or can pair you up with a junior or senior. Sometimes the honor society at the school offers tutoring after school for free.
Hiring a tutor is not cheap. Maybe you should try other alternatives first. For example online tutoring. Try some online tutoring services like:
1) http://www.tuitionplaza.com/tutoring/... - tutoring by retired teachers and volunteers (free)
2) http://www.tutor.com - tutoring by professional tutors (not free)
3) ... and many more (use search engine).
Think ouside the box and you'll have more options! Good luck!
