Set a routine where every night at a certain time you both sit down and go over his assignments. Have him doing homework while you fix dinner or whatever, so you can check on him and make sure that he's working on his studies. Tell him to let you know if he's having problems with something and you'll try to help him. Take away all TV, electronics, etc., until he's done. Maybe bribe him with staying up an extra 15-20 minutes playing a game if he spends an extra 15 minutes working on his spelling.

So you beat him up because he doesn't do his homework?

I would suggest removing the tv, games and toys (the distractions) until he has completed it. But "thrashing" him over it is not going to achieve anything.
