Could I offer a different perspective. Been umming and ahhing whether to post.
When I suggest he read to me he gets incredibly sad. When I force him to read to me he gets incredibly angry. I don't think I'm the person to help him with this.
The weird thing is -- he actually reads pretty good, but there just seems to be a wall when it comes to actually doing it.
(italicising the points that struck me)
My eldest son would not and still will not read, unless it is of his choosing.
At around 7 years old that, tho very able and competent at reading, he chose not to, would not. It caused upset until we finally discovered this was because he believed that if he read a book, especially at night, it would mean his Dad/me would stop reading to him altogether (i.e. he was old enough to read on his own). This was a nightly ritual when his father wasn’t travelling, often the same book over and over. It wasn’t that he couldn’t read " he just would not read but loved
to be read to. His father read to him for hours " he could be lost in the world of a fictional book, but only if he was being read to.
As he got a little older he chose only to read things that would interest him. E.g. a fishing magazine, a bug encylopedia, dinosaurs books, nature books, planets etc. Fact based information - non fiction. Things that interested him he would avidly read. Anything else, he would not look at. He still does not read books, tho he is an able reader, however, he writes lyrics for songs (eminem style/rap) constantly, has recorded his music in a studio and made CD's.
I know that does not have anything to do with the question regarding a tutor, so apologies for that " different situation, just saying, from another perspective, just a thought.
I think David and Butrflynet have a good idea. Perhaps reading scripts with Mo " he enjoys acting, he could maybe take the lead.
