I have outlined some simple but real steps on how to overcome complex and difficult lecturers. If you apply these tips, very soon all your lecturers will start smiling with you and your result will also be smiling. Severally, I have met students who complain about a particular lecturer. In fact, in some cases, once they hear that the result for the previous semester is out, all they are interested in is to know their grade in that lecturers’ course. There are some lecturers who are really difficult, but there are some who are not. It is just that some of them pretend to be difficult lecturers, but if you go close to them, they are not. These are the few point for your consumption.
Attend all lecture and seat in the front: The very first step to overcome difficult lecturers is to always attend their classes. Not just attending their classes but sitting at the front seat. The reason is because the more they see your face, the more they know you better. There are some lecturers who are naturally gifted to the point that whenever they see your face, they will recognize you any other place.
If you have a problem in a course and you approach the lecturer for help, the first thing he will do is to confirm if you are his student. Thus if you are always at the front seat, it will be an added advantage because your face will no longer be strange to him. Even if your lecturers do not know your name, ensure that they know your face. Always seeing you in classes will convince him that you are a serious student. Thus if you have any issue, it will not be hard for him to help you out.
Perform well in their courses: If you must overcome difficult lecturers, you must always perform well in their courses. Truth be told, there is a kind of grade you score in a particular course that the reverse will become the case. The lecturer will come looking for you himself. And as such the both of you become friends. Observe carefully that in most cases, it the average and dull students that have issues with lecturers. You will hardly see a first class or second class upper student having issues with lecturers. If you must break the code of your difficult lecturers, then you must ensure that you perform very well in their courses. By so doing, you will be on the advantaged side.
Ask questions: As much as been present for lecturers is important, ensure you ask questions frequently. This is the fastest strategy to make your lecturers know you. But then, you must ensure that you do not ask silly questions like many students do. It irritates many lecturers. Ask meaningful questions and by so doing, those difficult lecturers who have problem with smiling will begin to smile with you. From smiling, the relationship will graduate to laughing. Lecturers love when students ask them questions. This will prove to them that you are really understanding what they are teaching you.
Visit them in their offices: To overcome difficult lecturers, visit them in their offices once in a while. Remember that if you have issues with your lecturer, you are the one to suffer it. Your lecturer has graduated many years ago and you are still in school. Try as much as possible to visit them. If for nothing, to briefly gist with them, ask them questions or even run few errands for them. If you can do this one very well, you will never score less than a B in the lecturers’ course. Make friends with your lecturers. One of the secret of been a successful student is to love all your lecturers and courses. But i must not forget to clearly state that this point will not be practicable in a situation whereby the lecturer is of opposite gender.
Send them complimentary messages: Learn to send complimentary text messages to those seemingly difficult lecturers. If they have birthday, send them nice messages and if possible, publish their birthday on your Facebook timeline and tag them. These are little things that helps a big deal. On the day we defended our Industrial Training (SIWES or IT), I had a problem with one of my lecturers who never allowed me to say anything, yet I never knew what my offense was. He walked me out just like that and the other lecturer that was together with him told him I was not done with my defense. He insisted that I leave.
As I got home, I was so depresses. I wanted to go report the case to my HOD the next day, but on my bed, I got an idea. I took up my phone and sent a message to the two lecturers and the SIWES coordinator of my department. This is the content of the message I sent to them “Thanks for the defense today. It’s my pleasure having you as my lecturer. I will never forget you and I promise to repay you whenever I have the opportunity”. I did not include my name in the text message. Two of the lecturers called me and asked of my name and the other one (my SIWES) coordinator sent me a text message asking for my name. I sent him my name and when the result for the defense was released, I had an A.
Pray: If you have tried all these and fail, then do not neglect to use the weapon of prayer. The Holy Bible says, “The heart of king is in the hands of God”. If you have tried all these above stated steps and the lecturer still prove impossible, then use the altar of prayer. In fact, if you use the altar of prayer very well, then the lecture will be the one obeying you. Send you the case to the court of heaven where he will be judged and given instructions concerning you. You can overcome that seemingly difficult lecturer.
In conclusion, no matter how hard beans might be, when you heat it with time, it will become soft. In like manner, you can win the heart of those difficult lecturers.
