Mostly every teacher wants more questions from students. Even challenging your teacher is a good start.
By taking notes on important ideas.
Listen while your teacher is talking or jot down what your teacher writes on the board.
By concentrating on the speaker.

If you write it out... you maybe be an auditory learner.

Understand what your tackling with or try explaining/teach someone how to do it so it would be easy to remember. Secondly, give some time for your brain to develop the new information. Maybe review something else the same day. This will make it easier to learn new things. The third thing that can help you to remember is to REVIEW, RECITE, & REPEAT. It's easier than 1,2,3. Lastly, use some memory methods to help.
Think of things you already know. the SQ4R method; - distractions like the tv, computer or your cellphone isn't the best choice when studying. - good lighting is an great example. It must be not too bright but not too dull.
- temperature must be warm. - your area must be neat and tidy. This is to easily find the things you need.

- using computers or hands- on study aids. the internet could be the fastest & easier way of researching but it can be difficult. Some research could be wrong.
before using the site think about these questions...
Who put up this website?
Why was this website created?
When was this page put up? Is it current?
