Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Blake is a very sweet but shy 8 year old. He has two siblings, ages 14 and 15. He was recently diagnosed with ADHD and special education due to how he retains information, and his short attention span. He isn't wild or anything, he just kind of loses focus at times, and around others his age. Also his different way of learning. He is a visual learner like his mother. Blake loves to collect rocks, and play sports. We recently moved back here from NH, and they were very patient with him, and gave him a lot of one on one attention. I don't work currently, but I am looking for work, so I hope that the schedule works for us. I just want him to go into the 3rd grade and be confident. I don't want to have to hold him back.
What are your greatest hopes for your student?
To become a fluent reader, and excel in math.
What are you most grateful for?
Family. They mean everything to me.
Please describe specifically what your student needs help with.
My son is going into the third grade with a 1.5 grade reading level. I feel that he isnt ready for 3rd grade due to this. He can read small words, but not more complex words. He is also below level in math due to his way of learning. He learns by doing touch math.
According to the student, how can we make the world a better place?

What is the student's favorite book?
What does the student want to 'learn to be' when they grow up?
