He is concerned about his grades but can only seem to focus when the deadline looms. Then because he is rushing he misses certain things. But he seems so much more in the moment when facing deadline than being forced to study ahead ( i remember the feeling. ). I am torn between teaching him how to harness the power of last minute preparation ( took me years to master ) or pushing him to the more traditional method
College does not seem to be in the cards. His grades do not reflect the ability and his desire to move to Southern California and work behind the scenes in the movie industry has been a goal since he was 14. He has lined up apprenticeships ( Warner Bros. Lot) and film school grants. He is focused and motivated but has no propensity for school studies, it is perplexing to me. He has been this way all his life. Very high social intelligence coupled with little to no school aptitude.
Will do . Thank you
