Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Jett is a kind hearted and polite 10 year old boy. He was diagnosed with learning disability in the second grade. He has had an IEP since, but struggles every day in school. This has had a huge effect on his self confidence and his motivation to learn. He also has trouble focusing. Jett loves hands on learning and learning through art, however, his school does not provide this. He has a 14 year old sister who is making great grades and always trying to help him with his homework, but since it's his big sister, he has a hard time allowing her tell him what to do!
What are your greatest hopes for your student?
I hope that he can make progress with his reading skills that will boost his self confidence and give him a better foundation for the rest of his education. I would like to see him be able to reach his own goals.
What are you most grateful for?
