  3. I think you should listen to your instincts to pass this one on. He would benefit from someone who really understands the primary curriculum, the small steps he needs to make as he progresses, and the best ways to help him learn this. Whilst I'm sure you have a good grasp of the basic skills personally, it is a very different matter to be able to teach this effectively, especially if he is already struggling. If there is no one else available, I'd recommend buying and reading books aimed at primary trainee teachers and ks1-2 revision guides - just as starting points.
