Get to know Tay'veon and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Tay'veon is a very interesting Kid. He is the older brother, wait ... THE BEST OLDER BROTHER to his 3 year old sister, which he spoils. He is a funny and goofy little 7 year old boy with BIG ambitions and an even bigger heart. Tay'veon was diagnosed with ADD in Kindergarten which seems to only be triggered when he is bored at school, or has a lack of activities to do. We currently live in a School District where they do not participate in the No child Left behind Program, and no Tutoring unless its paid 100 dollars a week, which i can NOT pay, as i am a single parent raising my kids alone. We moved here 3 years ago from California by ourselves. I work 12 hr shifts from 6am to 6:45pm 4 days a week but i dont want to put my son's education on the line because we have no resources. He went from a 92 to a 78 and I am worried he might be at risk for retention all because he isnt getting th education he deserves or the extra help he needs.
Please describe specifically what your student needs help with.
It seems like my son is having a REALLY HARD TIME understanding phonics and because of that he is always unsure of himself. He tends to make mistakes during independent time alone because he isnt confident in what he knows. He doesnt get homework sent home, and the classrooms are so hectic he doesnt get enough time independently to catch up.
What are you most grateful for?
My children.
