The Seriously Struggling Student

The Seriously Struggling Student would love to be a master at anything; unfortunately, his lower-than-average processing speed make even a normal academic workload a challenge, and any distraction puts him even farther in the hole. He may have a diagnosed learning disability or other challenges.

Homayoun's Tip: Seriously Struggling Students may have very little self-confidence and a good amount of frustration with their academic abilities. Being a mentor for younger kids can be a rewarding and confidence-building experience. It enables them to step outside their world and look at the needs of others who look up to them.
