You know she’s smart, and she knows she’s smart. So maybe start there. “I know you’re smart. I know you don’t need a tutor to understand the material. So don’t use this person as a tutor. Just use them to strategize with. By all reports people with ADHD do really well with that, so it’s worth a try. I can see that the frustration of your situation is wearing on you, as is understandable given the situation. But this could actually make a difference for one, so give it a shot.”
