Get to know John and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
John is 13 years old and is in the 8th grade! He is in the Visual Arts magnet program at his school. My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 4 years old, and initially had an IEP for speech and a delay. He phased out of both. John is incredible! Although he has had his ups and downs academically, he is awesome in reading and writing, but has had a difficult time remembering simple math facts. He is soft spoken and simply a sweetheart. He lives with his dad and I, along with his 3 siblings, 10, 6, and 5. He is a great big brother and tries his best be a good role model. He is also the proud father of a 5 year old cat named Rio. In his spare time, John enjoys playing on his xbox and editing videos on his YouTube channel.
