Get to know Carl and his family better


Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Carl is 9 years old and will be 10 in December. He has 3 sisters (2 live with him - they are babies). He has anxiety Oppositional Defiant Disorder, ADHD, and severe dyslexia. He struggles with reading and math. He is in 4th grade and he's going to Louisiana key Academy which is a school for dyslexic children. He's a good kid but he struggles. He also has some anger issues but I think it's due to the frustration he has with reading and spelling. He gets confused because they all kind of sound alike. He has not learned any words that start with ph that sounds like f. I'm trying to teach him but this is very frustrating.
