Get to know Caden and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Caden is a sometimes sweet, okay very sweet boy, who struggles in school with math more so than other subjects. He has a Sensory processing disorder, ADHD, and a general and social anxiety disorder. He will be going into 6th grade and I feel he would benefit from extra help over the summer seeing that 6th grade is going to bring MANY challenges for him and he will be starting in a new school, as I switched him out of the local school. He is my youngest of 3, I have two older girls 18 (Brielle) and 16 (Kylla). I am a stay at home mom but as I said earlier given his tenancy to rely on me I am unable to be effective helping him. I fear without extra help over the summer he will not be successful in 6th grade as its going to be a challenging year for him emotionally, mentally and socially given his daily struggles. I feel like tutoring would help him again confidence and aid in his success in middle school.

What are your greatest hopes for your student?
That he learns to love learning, realizes that he is incredibly intelligent and can do anything he puts his mind to. That he finds confidence and drive in his older years to reach for his dreams.
