Get to know Robert and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Robert is the most caring twelve-year-old I know. He is the man of our house and wears it very well. Robert helps me with his younger sister and never complains. He was held back in the 3rd grade due to him not being able to catch on. I thought that would help, but it did not. He is still struggling. Sometimes I think him being a child in a single parent household may be the issue, but I honestly don't know. He is so deserving of everything that comes his way. He is very humble, very understanding, very generous. He is always willing to help someone, even when he needs the help. He wants to own a trucking company so bad when he gets older. That is all he speaks about and how he will be better than his father. I just pray someone gives Robert the chance to be someone :)

Being able to read with confidence :) Being confident!!!!

My son's ability to love me unconditionally, even with a broken heart.
