Our son works so hard in school. Last year he got an A in integrated math 1. This was during the pandemic.
This year in person he ( intergrated math 2) has all good greats on projects, homework, etc. He spends 3 hours extra tutoring math and usually gets the questions right or at least shows mastery. Our son and I had a meeting with his math teacher and he says he doesn't understand why he is failing tests. Our son understands the concept, sometimes turns and helps his tablemate by teaching it. He goes to in class tutoring and takes a test and fails it. He retakes it fails again (sometimes even lower).
I also want to tell everyone if your child is struggling with things in elementary or middle school... please get them help! I knew in middle school he struggled taking tests, but now it is 1000% worse..
We pay a tutor 6 hours a week for math and english. He is in the school flex time with his math teacher 4 days a week.
We are at our wits end. He shows mastery everywhere but on the test..
So hard to watch him fail.
