Issue with a chemistry lab professor

  1. So I have chemistry lab with a professor that is really on my nerves. She feels like I am stupid and slow, and constantly yells at me for asking a simple question. It's getting to the point where I don't ask her a question based on the fear that she may yell at me. Any advice? The class isn't overall very difficult, but with her my grade is a currently a C, which is something I don't want to have. Just to prove my point, she gave me a 17.8/20 on a ***

    how do you know how she feels? I think you mean that YOU feel she thinks you are stupid because of the way she treats you. My advice is to lay low, smile a lot and study outside the classroom. She may find your questions too challenging. If you feel threatened or discriminated against, complain to the Dean. Otherwise, be invisible. This too shall pass.
