Merit Question and Answer
My son needs help with High School Reading, Writing and Math.


Area of Concern: Reading Comprehension

Submitted by: Parent

Grade Level: Middle School

Competency: At Level

My son is going to be 15 this Christmas and is falling further behind in school. He no longer wants to even try to do better. He attended summer school this past summer and at the mid point of the first grading period he is failing four of his classes. His school will be testing for learning disabilities soon. I have had him tested, with conflicting results, twice before. At this point I am no longer willing to leave this to the schools to take care of alone. Please help me find a way to help my son before he’s no longer willing to be helped.
Thank you for your time.



Thank you for contacting us. I believe that our programs will be a great help to your son.

Merit Software programs were designed not only to help students with Math and Language Arts but also boost their motivation levels and self-confidence. When you say your son doesn’t even try anymore, it seems to me that he no longer trust his ability to do well and believing in himself is the most important step toward success.

I suggest that he starts with Developing Critical Thinking Skills set 3 and Basic Algebra Shape-Up. If he does well consider getting programs for other areas such as Essay Punch (for writing) Grammar Fitness (for Grammar) and Word Problem Shape-Up(for math). Good luck!
