ELA and Math Tutor for 6th grader (Somerville, MA)

A family in Somerville is seeking an ELA and math tutor. See the message below for details:

I am looking for an ELA and math tutor for my 11 year old son, who is a 6th grader at the Kennedy School in Somerville. It can be two separate tutors, or a unicorn who can do both! My son has an ADHD/ASD1 diagnosis. He learns easily one on one, but has a hard time focusing in a classroom setting, so we are looking for weekly sessions to consolidate what he has learned in class. Ideally it would be 2 hours in math and two hours in ELA. Time and days is flexible- anytime between 3 and 5 PM on a weekday. We can pay $30/hour. If interested or would like more information please contact me at afolland@gmail.com. My name is Alison.
