My son has failed almost every class in 9th grade and 3 classes in 10th. He hates school. I am lost on how to get him to graduate. I have found a tutor that starts soon. But what can I do to make up credit's? Summer school fixed classes last year But this year was unsuccessful because it was algebra. Anyone been threw this? He's not disrespectful,he goes daily. He's truly struggling.

Has he been tested for learning differences? Or to assess his learning style?

Do you know if he is reading at grade level?

Does your school district have any alternative programs for youth who are struggling?

How are your son's basic math skills? Algebra is hard if you don't know multiplication tables and simple addition by heart.

Would he be willing to do online algebra practise?
