What accomodations was she given in her IEP to help with her ADHD symptoms? Getting a good IEP in order would be a good start. My daughter hated school too, we pulled her after a miserable year in K, before we even had a diagnosis or imagined that would be on our radar. We’ve been homeschooling for 1st and now 2nd. It’s HARD but at least I know she’s safe and happy and learning. I’m not sure tutoring would help your daughter especially if it’s after school because by that time, she is just done and needs to be home. Instead I’d find fun engaging things she can do at home to reinforce her learning, for example my daughter loves the website Prodigy for math.
