Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Ayonna is 11 years old. She has a 2 grown sisters and 1 grown brother and 1 brother 12 year old brother who both are adopted. I have them both since infancy. Ayonna lives to listen to music and dance. Ayonna is in the 5th grade and has been homeschooled since leaving 2nd grade. Prior to leaving the public school Ayonna had an IEP. She was way below reading level. I believe she wants to read but gets discouraged because she don’t know all the words that she is reading. I have tried so many things and it seems nothing is working. She gets overwhelmed and cries. I don’t want to dislike reading for I’m a bookworm and love to read. So I’m here to see if this will be a good place to help her thrive.
