I disagree that my teaching style is rigid. Other clients say that I'm creative, and I try everything I can to motivate and make progress with the student. In this case, this child's complete lack of motivation (even when offered rewards and praise) was detrimental to his progress. I tried using colored markers, used plastic stick-on letters, got him a special "grown up" fat pencil (for writing), alternated tasks to avoid boredom, read stories by my reading every other word, and more.
