Get to know Jhaida and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Jhaida is 14 and has 2 brothers and 5 step brothers and sisters. Her brother Stephon (18) lives in the home with her and her older brother Von (24) has his own apartment . She is developing low self esteem even though she is talented and beautiful. She's sweet and has an infectious smile. She's loves people. She is estranged from her father due to a child abuse issue they had. They see each other when he takes them to school but that's about all. She's a great artist and is very creative. She loves to draw. She can watch a video on tube and learn how to do something like knitting and doing nails. She's smart and funny. She loves to hug people. We love to laugh at home. We have movie night and taco Tuesday. She starts doing good then somehow starts getting down on herself and loses faith in herself. She's says she hates school and wants to drop out. I need to show her how smart she really is. I just need the right people to show me and her how to help her. I know she's going to be something great, she just needs the confidence and motivation to get there. I feel with the right help, she will be what she wants to be and be successful at it.
