    Hi there. I am a college student and I am having quite a bit of trouble in school. When i came last year, I had straight A's, I would go to my lectures learning information in class, processing it, and practicing it weekly all in the time I had. As I progressed, this confidence, consistency, time management spiraled. By the next term I had mostly B's and C's and this year I am struggling to pass all my classes. I show up to class completely demotivated, and I can barely focus. Whenever I sit down and do my homework or try to study the material it takes forever, and at this point I have so much that whenever I get a break I take full advantage and have no motivation to study. Do not know how to come out of this cycle, i know I can be a straight a student.

    Hello cuzblunt,
    It sounds like you've been having a hard time lately. Are there any learning mentors you can speak with at college? There are so many different reasons why we find it difficult to learn that an assessment from an educational psychologist might be helpful. I suggest discussing this with your parents or tutor. Also, if we are feeling low emotionally, this can impact on our ability to concentrate and learn. It might be worth talking to a counsellor?
