Hi All,
We are looking for a tutor for our 15-year old boy who's in year 10, in a school he doesn't like much. He is desperate to get out of there, and he's a smart kid - but he's a bit lazy, he has ADHD and while he'll say that he'll do better in school, he is not mature enough to really be as thorough as he needs to be. In order to ace an examination test for a good private school, he'll need some help - especially as he is coming from both the American and German school system. Does any of you know of a good person who'll know how to be inspiring but also really firm? And whose ego won't be blunted by a kid who might be less than motivated at first? Super bonus if they have a sense of what the academic level at the private schools around Dulwich. Thank you so much in advance!
