Get to know Jahmere and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
My son Jahmere is really generous, he’ll give you his last! He’s in the 6th grade and he loves math! No problem there, but he struggles in the reading area! This started in elementary and the school he went to at the time provided tutoring for the children 1-3 grade! But they didn’t accommodate 4-5 graders and that hurt Jahmere academically! They did not give him any homework for 2 years and upon being asked why, they told me that they did so because it’s not fair to the other children who’s not receiving the help at home!! So that caused Jahmere to get in a deeper hole with reading. So now he’s in the 6th grade and it’s more challenging and he is lost! He really needs help with this!

What are your greatest hopes for your student?
That he receives the help he needs! That he’s able to retain the information that’s provided so he can become fluent!

I’m grateful for my son and how he tries to do his best! I love him unconditionally and I just want the best for him!
