Homework Helper / Mentor for High Schooler

Hi, I'm writing about our youngest son, a 16-year old sophomore. He's a very sweet guy who is enjoyable to be around. He's friendly, wise and interesting. And he's high-achieving on anything he loves, but he doesn't love school!

He's unable to manage his internal motivation and complete the tasks necessary to track and meet school deadlines.

He has a couple of AP classes, but our need for support is less about specific content and more about motivation, checks and balances, and support. It would be wonderful to connect with someone of any age who is inspirational and enjoyable to be around, and who can be very on-the-spot with organizing and checks and balances. It would be nice if our son could do this for himself (and that is the ultimate goal) but it's clear that he cannot at this point, and desperately needs help.

We're thinking maybe 1.5 hours, 3x per week to start + daily text check-ins to confirm tasks completed.

And then, as we learn more about what works best for you both, we could adapt the scheduling and process as needed.
