I'd like to start off by saying that I currently teach in a middle school, and I have taught at the high school level as well. After years of giving advice, I find it difficult to follow. It is a chore to get additional work out of him like practicing his writing, or getting him to read. The only thing he wants to do is play video games. I have taken the console controllers away in the past, but it is so tedious. I feel like I'm a dentist 24-7 (pulling teeth.) I just find it so annoying. I know I only see my students max four hours a day, but they seem more enjoyable than him.
