Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
My son's name is Uzoma. He is currently in the 4th grade. He is a very smart child but also has ADHD. He needs extra guidance with math and reading as they are his weakness. I am a single mother trying to conquer it all with him. Uzoma becomes extremely frustrated with homework because he claims that he does not understand the material and just wants to give up.
I try to encourage him everyday but at times I do not feel like he wants to hear it from me. I know that he is able to do the math and also read but is needing someone to motivate him, encourage and coach him.
He is a very active and athletic child and competes in gymnastics. He tells me all the time that he will become an Olympic gymnast. I love that spirit about him but I also need for him to feel the same about his homework.
Please help us out that way he can go to school feeling more confident about his skills and empowered.
Thank you for your time,
Please describe specifically what your student needs help with.
Son needing help with math and reading (retention)
How can we make the world a better place?
My son is not here at the moment that I am filling out application but I know that he would something like...."the world could be a better place if he could live at his gymnastics gym that way he can work out everyday all day" (my baby is so special)
What are you most grateful for?
I am extremely grateful to have my son. He brought life to me. I am a single mother and is extremely hard for me to afford any type of tutoring for my son as tuition is expensive and I have rent to pay. I just want him to feel confident in school and not left out.
What is your favorite book?
My son is not here at the moment that I am filling out application but I know that he would something like... "I do not enjoy reading"
