My professor hasnt taught well all year, and now I am in danger of failing the class. I keep failing every test, and I have talked to her before with a couple of other students and asked for extra credit or if we could do home work for some extra credit, but she doesnt speak english well... and she just said she will put extra credit on the tests. I am going to talk to her again, im not sure what to say. I was going to tell her I need to pass the class bad and I need her to give me extra credit and bump all my test scores up, but its hard to communicate with her, her english isnt very good.

Blackmail The Bitch!!
Listen buddy dont let this bitch fukk up your grade. Next time, wait untill everybody else has left class and walk up to her while she is packing up her **** and slip her a note with her address details on. Let her know that YOU know where she lives. Now you start spying outside her house taking photos of her husband/kids whatever...now you mail them to her threatning to kill them if she doesnt give you top marks.
If that doesnt work, post some pics of the bitch here and we will photoshop it into some porn **** and you can then print it out and slap it all around the school.
RUIN HER LIFE!!

Most professors don't take kindly of those who simply want a grade boost.
You're better off asking her questions ABOUT the TEST and class material. This does 2 things:
1. Most importantly shows that you're interested. How is she gonna fail someone that seems involved in the class but simply can't score well on tests?
2. You might get some test questions or some type of idea what will be on the test so you can make better use of your studying.
Professors don't hand out free grades. However, if they THINK you tried hard they might give you the boost. So do a bit of brown nosing. Maybe ask her HOW to study for the next test. Ask her "can you explain me ____ a little more i'm having a difficult time understanding it." etcetcetc. Gotta do this quite oftenPost of the year:

ok wait, so you are getting a bad grade in the class and it is ALL her fault? You could not have studied any more outside of class? Or got a tutor? Or got help from a friend? You couldn't have skipped a party or hanging out with a friend to study?
I am more thinking that it is the fault of both of you (I know having a teacher with bad english is hard, I have been there, put in the extra work and passed the class on my own but it was rough) and you need to just suck it up and try to do better the rest of the semester and work your ass off to do better.A diplomat . . . is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip. - Caskie Stinnett

I can't believe no one has said PIITB yet!
On a serious note, you might be screwed. I would be pretty surprised if a teacher would bump up all your test scores and give you extra credit. I'm sure in her eyes the fault doesn't lie with her teaching but with you.
I assume you are in college? Most of them will let you retake the class with a different teacher and let you throw away the old grade. I got a D- the first time I took calculus. I just didn't get the professor's teaching style and I couldn't figure out the material without some help. My school allowed like 4 retakes during your college career. You just had to go fill out a form saying which class you are going to retake and then when you pass the class they throw out the old grade and take the new one. In this way I replaced the D- with an A. It was a life-saver.
Anyway, my advice is to go to your student counciling office and ask them if they allow class retakes. Explain the situation to them, tell them that you know you could do better if given a 2nd chance with a new teacher and see what they tell you. Colleges WANT you to succeed. It makes them look better.

Flashback to my High School years when it could be considered cool and funny to fail and/or get suspended from school. The so called nerds got the big paying jobs and a lot of the cool guys are like the Trailer Park Boys (one of my favorite shows). Good thing I smartened up and eventually applied myself.
