current aig student advice
Current AIG Student Advice
  • AIG teacher treats you fairly.
  • Always listen because it will help you on tests.
  • Take your time and do it right the first time.
  • Encourage your child!
  • Focus on effort, not grades.
  • Study for any upcoming tests.
  • Work smarter, not harder!
  • Believe in yourself!
  • Think outside of the box.
  • Do your best! Be a brainiac!
  • Hope parents can keep up with their student’s math!
  • Be sure to practice skills that you are not as good at.
  • Please tell parents not to stress them about coming to AIG.
  • Students need to try their best because you can earn rewards.
  • Always show your work so that you can get the problem right. Make sure that you match your work with the problem.
  • Don’t stress the EOG because they are really easy. Remind students on the morning of the test, that they will do great no matter what!
  • The homework is a fair amount and most of the time parents would not need to help.
  • Even if you are having a tough time, remember that you are in AIG for a reason.
  • Don’t get nervous because the work is just a little harder.
  • Use your brain and think about the task.
  • Do not think that they know everything, do not get too confident but do think that you can be successful in AIG!
