Get to know Kenneth and his family better

Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Kenneth is a well mannered 12 year old boy who is doing okay in school but can do better especially in English Language Art. He likes doing Math but not so much reading. He is a first generation American so English. Also, English is not the only language used at home as the parents speak a different language which is fine but I can not help them in reading and writing as much as I want to. I am hoping this program will help him in those aspects.
Please describe specifically what your student needs help with.
He needs to improve reading speed, and improve comprehension in fiction and nonfiction. He needs to become a stronger, more confident writer and learn to read, study, and take notes in textbooks.
What are you most grateful for?
I am grateful for our family and the our good health and that we are all living together.
What are your greatest hopes for your student?
We hope for him to like reading for fun or enjoy reading and writing as much as he likes playing and watching and doing physical activities.
According to the student, how can we make the world a better place?
We can make a better world by starting at home and at school by being a good child, student and citizen.
What is the student's favorite book?
Harry potter and the sorcerer's stone
What does the student want to be when they grow up?
I want to be a doctor.
