So my brother survived his first week of school. Actually, as much as he moaned and complained, we could all tell he was secretly happy to be back. Ever since we switched schools and signed him up for lessons with English and Math Tutors, school has become a much more pleasurable experience for him. Just don't try to get him to admit it. Old habits die hard, even for 10 year olds.
My brother had a bit of tutoring over the summer and the sessions are not going to end with his summer break. In fact, now that it is "back to the books" time, we are aggreseively searching for both English and Math Tutors again.
