Certain math teachers do not help students that need the help. My child has math teacher Mrs.Hope and she needs help with her work. I do agree that she should study and do homework a little more often, but i see her trying so hard to understand, she has cried because she is so scared that she might fail because she doesnt understand. She has told the teacher that she doesn't understand, and the teacher blammed it on her, saying that she doesnt work hard enough and doesn't do home work, while here at hime I see her frustrated at the fact that she needs help, and Mrs.Hope just won't help her.
