Hello, I am currently tutoring a young student (8yrs) who is not in school due to behaviour management issues. I am only there an hour a day and attempt to do a bit of English and a little maths. However, when they are on task and interested they are super, but their attention span can be anything from 1 second to half an hour. After which they completely ignore me and their mother or become increasingly aggressive starting by pushing their work on the floor, literally screaming in your face, throwing things (pens, Lego, shoes), pushing, hitting, punching, kicking, pinching and spitting. Asking them to talk doesn't, telling them to sit down, using a loud voice to say sit down - nothing just more of the same. It becomes a battle of wills where they kind of hold us hostage with the threat of violence until they get what they want or their mum has to physically restrain them. Any tips? Any cunning maths/English stuff? NB This child adapts faster than the Borg so the more tools I have in my arsenal, the better. And advice for parents too as mother is at the end of her tether.
