I've been struggling so much in my math class

July 14, 2014

I've been struggling so much in my math class. I've been to my GSI's office hours, got tutoring from friends, went to tutoring at the EECS honor society and everything! I am still struggling and I'm afraid I might fail the class because I really don't understand what's going on. Everyday I walk out of class either tired or in tears..

Hi there, Sorry to read about your difficult experiences with your math class. Some classes at Cal are really, really tough and it is not uncommon to repeat a course. Getting extra help from others can help. Consider going to the Student Learning Center for academic support too. For emotional support, you can always call the Tang Center’s Counseling and Psychological services at 642.9494. In the meantime, focus on the basics: eat, sleep, and exercise regularly and surround yourself with people who care about you. Also, try to find ways to cheer yourself up. And keep up with your other classes. Best wishes to you.
