Vivo is here to help, to make school more fun and rewarding. But, unfortunately, we can’t help you with your homework.
First of all, we don’t have enough people at Vivo HQ to do the homework for all the students who use Vivo. Second, we don’t think your teachers would be very happy. Third, homework is good for you!
What we can do, is give you some tips to make the process a little less painful. Just think, if you do a good job, your teachers might even reward you with vivos.
Set aside a time for homework
If you set a time for doing your homework each day, it will become a habit. If doing your homework becomes a habit, it won’t feel like such a chore. Work out what time works best for you. Some people work better in the evening, some work better as soon as they come back from school.
Get rid of distractions
Turn off your TV. Get your parents to hide your smart phone for an hour. You may feel like the internet is your best friend when it comes to homework, but it can be an awful distraction. Only use the internet if your teachers have suggested that you do.
Understand what your teachers want
If you know your teachers well, you know what they expect from you. This doesn’t mean that you can cut corners or do the bare minimum, but it means you can get to the point quickly and succinctly and achieve the best grades possible.
Talk to your teachers
It never hurts to ask your teachers a few questions about your homework before you do it. They will see that you care about doing a good job – this is a very good thing! Teachers will appreciate your positive attitude, and this may be reflected in how they treat you in class and when they sit down to mark your homework.
Homework is supposed to be hard. It is supposed to test what you have learnt in class and improve the skills you are developing. Remember that practice makes perfect. If a piece of homework is causing you trouble, be patient. Sometimes trying to rush through something makes the whole process harder. If you take your time, you will find it easier and more enjoyable.
You are never going to be the best at everything. It’s just important that you do your best. Your teachers will respect that as long as you show that you have put in the time and effort. One bad piece of homework isn’t the end of the world. If you are really struggling, just do your best and then take the time to ask your teacher to explain it to you after class the next day.
