“Hey Seth, I’ve been thinking about next semester. My son did ok ( I.e. no D’s/F’s). But there were several classes that he should have had better grades in (actually most of them!). These are classes where he started off strong. His M.O. typically is as you describe, although he seems to be able to “Hail Mary” it at the end (stressful for both of us!).
Out tutor does a great job working with him; the problem is the follow-through. (finishing, remembering to finish, handing in everything) of course he rejects the planner and so often forgets key elements of assignments). He usually volunteers what he needs to do, then doesn’t do it.
He is already fluent in your systems and has rejected some / made some his own. He’s sort of in need of the next step I.e. using the tools you’ve provided to make himself responsible as well as being accountable to someone he trusts like you.
I was wondering if you had thoughts on offering something for kids like him who are beyond the basics but still need a push to succeed, to change their mindset ( a term loathed by my son btw!).”
