How to Email a Professor:
In this email you will notice I did not add a subject line. Your professor will not know anything about this email and what it is you need from them. It's important to to add a subject line so your professor will know what the email is about. In your email make sure to greet your professor correctly. Start with hello and your professor's name. You can check your syllabus to see what your professor prefers to be called, for example Mr/Mrs/Ms or Dr. Only call your professor by their first name if they tell you it's acceptable. As you can see in my email I use an unprofessional greeting. Professors do not appreciate that. I also do not tell them what it is that I nee dhelp with. Be specific so they can better assist you. I don't end my email with my name or class, so now my professor will not know who I am and what class I'm in. This will make helping you a lot harder than it needs to be.
In this email to Marla we are on a first name basis, otherwise I would use a more professional title such as Ms or Miss. You will notice I have put in a subject line. This is important for your professor to know what it is that you need. You will also see how I specifically tell her what I need help with in Zoom and that I need an extension on my assignment. You will need to be specific with your professor so they can better help you. Also, when you go to end the email you will add your name and what class you are in. Most professors teach around 4-7 classes a semester so it is very important to let them know who you are and what class you're in. Always be polite when speaking in an email, thank them and let them know how best to contact you to help resolve the issue.
