...in my boxers...
Bravo! A superb vent it was.
As far as your questions.... I'm attending colleege now, though I'll graduate from highschool in June. 13 credits at college, 10 at home.... I'm not sure what this type of situation would call for; what type of action it requires. Your patience is admirable. Most people, especially our age, would have said a few four letter words, and more, and walked away.
In the end, if they don't want your help, I wouldn't sacrifice yourself for them. You are all you have in the end, and if they don't want help and sacrifice, it's not worth it.
Perhaps, if you have the time, look into psychology and sociology reports on the subject of teaching, learning, and attention disorders, see if you can pick anything up? Look at a library, at college campus, maybe communicate with a psych professor or two, if he/she have the time. The reports may be hard to read and understand, and gather helpful information from. Perhaps look at old copies of psych labs? Or search online (www.dogpile.com, www.altavista.com)... maybe the American Psychologist Assocition (APA), their online website, for material gathered into an easy to read format.
Perhaps talk to teachers known to have successful classes on your campus and see if they have any advice?
By the way, smashing picture.
Es ist gut, daß das Leben die Toten studieren sollte.
