Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
sarah is a very sweet 9 year old girl who is currently struggling in math. This is the first year she is having trouble in math and it has been had for us. After finding out what area she is struggling we've been trying our best to to look for help for her. She is the only child in our home with a brother on the way. So we're looking for some help to keep her focused and not be overwhelmed with school. We have been helping her since the summer but makes it very hard is that she forgot what she learned. We also try to have her focus on the way the teacher teaches her. But he likes to jump around which confuses her more.
