I am a university student, in my current group there are only 5 students (2 women and 3 men).

One of my teachers has been ignoring me since the course started (approximately 2 weeks ago), that is, he never looks at me when he gives his class, he looks at all my classmates during the whole class except me. He also always asks them if something is not clear, except to me. This is something really very annoying because his favoritism towards the others is too noticeable since we are only 5 students in a classroom.

I always try to pay attention to his class, but it is really hard not to feel bad for his attitude towards me.

If I had the option of not going to his class, I would not go but unfortunately if I do not go to classes I can lose the right to present my exams.

How can I improve my relationship with this professor, so that he treats me the same way as he does his other students?

Note: I don't know why I am un-favored (I am just an average student, nothing special). If I knew why, then I'd fix it myself (let's suppose it's because of the color of my hair, then I'll probably dye my hair).

    What interpersonal skill are you looking to improve on? – baldPrussian Apr 20 '18 at 1:38

    Well I don't know, whatever that might help, I've tried to ignore him but I can't. What would you do in my situation? – user16982 Apr 20 '18 at 1:42

    The problem you'll find here is that IPS is focused on helping improve an interpersonal skill. Although the members here will sympathize with the situation, I fear the question will be put on hold because there's no clear course of action and seems to ask "what should I do". Those unfortunately are out of scope here. If the question could be edited to have a desired course of action, that would help. – baldPrussian Apr 20 '18 at 1:44

    It's discrimination, he's doing things for them and not for me (and it hurts) I don't know why, he's the only one that treats me that way. – user16982 Apr 20 '18 at 2:08

    I believe we're not being presented with something obvious to Isa. If you could venture a guess at why your professor acts differently toward you than the other four students, what would that be? – Awesome Apr 20 '18 at 6:15
