    I would try and hire a tutor through the young man's school. I've been in education for 38 years and have seen students go through Sylvan without much improvement . I have no knowledge of Kumon, but I'd assume it is simmilar. They do lighten your wallet considerably though. Another teacher may be willing to help after school hours and that way you could be reasonably sure that he is being taught in the same manner as his classroom, just at a slower and more personalized pace. Like anything else these days there is always someone who has all the answers for a price and these learning centers often are doing just that--ask them if they guarantee a certain level of improvement if you do deal with them.
