    Hi.
    If you don’t think you would be able to talk to them about it all you could always try writing it down first. That means you can either read what you wanted to say and get your thought in order or it means if it’s too much you can give them the paper.
    Another idea could be emailing and asking if you can have a meeting with them. That ensures some privacy and you can give them some of the details before hand.

    All the best and talking to someone is a step in the right direction.

    You might also want to consider going to your school/college/uni counsellor instead (depending on if you have one) mainly because they'll trained to deal with these issues more effectively.

    Try and email your favourite teacher, one that you trust the most, and that you think would be able to help. You could also email the school counsellor about how you’re feeling and ask them for a meeting. If this is weird to you and you’d rather talk to you teacher, this is completely fine, but keep in mind that the counsellor is much more suited to solve your issues than a teacher. However, you could explain this to your teacher and maybe ask them if they would go to the counsellor with you.I’m in high school currently and am speaking with a really cool teacher who is glad to help and has helped plenty. He asked me if we could both go to the counsellor together which I think is a good idea for you as well. But first, I recommend telling the teacher you trust most.Hope this helps
