Please describe your student and why you qualify for tutoring.
Jermeka is a smart and bright 12 year old. She's in the 7th grade and lives in a single parent home, with her mother and four siblings: 2 Girls, 2 boys. She's my youngest child, (spoiled) but loves to learn the most. Over the summer, she was diagnosed with (RA) which is rheumatoid arthritis and it has taken a big effect on her learning. Jermeka had to miss 5 weeks at end of school last year due to this new disability, but she tries so hard to get her lessons and I don't want her to fall too far behind and get discouraged. Education is everything in our home, and any help from the program would be greatly appreciated.
