7. Be Polite

Even if your professor mostly lectures and there isn't a lot of class participation, you can get to know him by being polite.

When you come into class, don't walk past your teacher.

Speak and say, โ€œhelloโ€ or โ€œgood morning.โ€ If possible, arrive to class a few minutes earlier.

If your professor also arrives early, there might be time for one or two minutes of small talk.

Getting to know a professor can be tricky, especially if there are a lot of students in your class and there isnโ€™t much time to pick your professorโ€™s brain.

The above tips can help you get to know your professor on a personal level and build a stronger student-teacher relationship.
