Asking For Help Can Help You Do Better In School

Some students in school are much too stubborn to get out of their desk and go ask for help. But science says that asking for help can help you do better in your classes. In a 2015 Saint Louis University study, research showed that students who asked for help during office hours were more likely to get A's in the class. The reason wasn't so much that they went specifically to the instructor for help but that they were being proactive about asking teachers or classmates for help when they didn't understand a concept or problem. According to researches, asking for help maximizes learning.
