Personality is not a gift: you’ve got to get it, to sanely struggle to conquer, along life.
Repetition of actions makes up someone’s personality.
With the aid of tutoring sessions you teacher can help a lot. The tutoring sessions should be abundant.
According to the kid’s starting personality you teacher can help a great deal.
For example by suggesting and setting small and simple goals. If this kid is lazy and doesn’t rise on time in the morning, tell him to do it once, or twice this week. Next week set him to rise on time four or five times; I think four times is better. And so and so. The kid with time passing will rise on time every day, tentatively.
