• Thanks for meeting me today, Professor Chambers.
  • I wanted to talk to you about my work in your class.
  • Yes, I'm glad you came in. I see you haven't done very well on the last two tests.
  • That's right. I had to miss a lot of classes when I had pneumonia, and I just didn't catch up on the material in time.
  • I missed the class when you took up the last test. Is there anything I can do to make up for these poor marks?
  • took up the last test
    "take up a test"は「教員が試験の答案を学生に返し、回答について解説すること」をいう。
  • Well, the only test left is the final exam, which is worth 40% of your total grade.
  • You'll have to work very hard to get a good enough grade to pass the course.
  • I understand.
  • In fact, if you're having this much trouble, I think you should get a tutor.
  • You can arrange tutoring services through the departmental assistant.
  • Okay, I'll do that. Is there anything else I can do?
  • What about extra credit assignments?
  • Normally I don't allow those, but in this case, I will.
  • Oh, thank you!
  • I'll send you an assignment by e-mail. You need to return it to me within one week in order to get the extra credit.
  • I'll make sure it's done on time.
  • All right. Make sure you come to my office hours before the final exam if you're still having trouble.
  • Thank you!
  • You're welcome, and good luck.
