well im good in english, but ok in math. since i average a B in math, i like to take some spare time and look over my math. maybe you can do that for your english. and if you know your stuff, you'll be on-top of your classes and it'll help you stay focused longer. just a thought, for a try. and remember, if you dont like the subject, your not gonna be focused 100% on it. some are just boring. hope this will help you, and good luck!!
