Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Janarreia is a smart, hard-working twelve-year-old young lady that is struggling with Math and ELA. She is the eldest of four sisters (ages 11,8,3 & 8 months) so she feels that she has to set an example for her younger siblings. She has told me that she doesn’t understand how she used to be good at it and it’s hard for her to solve one problem, but I’ve always told her that it’s going to get harder the further she gets in school and I don’t want it to discourage her but to prepare her. She said that she tries to do a problem but her mind goes blank and she can’t focus on it. She asks me for help, but the kind of math she is doing I don’t remember doing it or it just has been a long time since I have done it. She gets frustrated a lot because she can’t get her grade up in class. She wants to succeed and go to college, but it seems hard when she feels that she doesn't have anyone to help her with her work, so she puts it to the side until it’s due. I want her to keep going with her goal of going to college and not let this stop her. I feel that if she gets the right help, it will keep her with the positive mindset she has always had since she started school. I want to help her in any way I can. I know that if she gets in this program, it will help her accomplish the goals she has set for herself.

What are your greatest hopes for your student?
My greatest hopes for her is that she keeps a positive attitude and continues to love school so that she can accomplish her goal of going to college.

What are you most grateful for?
I’m most grateful for having a young lady that loves school, has set goals for herself, and wants to stay on track for college.
