Hi, I thought I would get this board going. If you are like me you are a new teacher who is tutoring a few students. I work with two fourth graders and a first grader. All three of my tutorees have improved since I started to work with them, which has been gratifying.

I was wondering if anyone had any tips for tutoring an above average fourth grade reader who has no motivation to challenge himself. He is consistently omitting sight words and choosing books that are too easy for his reading level. He also refuses to do any of the assignments I give him to improve his reading responses and comprehension. Any tips? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks a lot~
