Get to know Marina and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Marina is a energetic 15 year old girl currently struggling in school, she is very good in English but does not feel confident in math and is nervous she might not pass algebra 1, She has 2 older sister whom have already moved out, she enjoys rip-sticking and trying out new recipes, She also really likes trying out creative makeup looks. Marina is a pretty nervous person is general so math is very frustrating for her, she can sometimes feel stupid so she just shuts off and doesn't do any math work at all because she assumes she will fail, Im hoping this program will help her become more confident in math and feel less nervous about the rest of high school. She just told me yesterday: "Mom if this is 9th grade math, Im really scared for 10th"
