Learning is not always about improving marks, it is about trying to find practical use for content, and developing strong skills. This can best be done through interesting projects, and games to help strengthen skills. At the cores all education is about learning what matters the most to a student and working to their strengths. As long as the student is willing to try and fail new things, than we can work together to accomplish any goals.
