    Post Can someone correct this for me and tell me what u think?

    I'm signing my 8 yr old son up for an online home school. They have asked me to describe our academic goals and vision for success for my son for this school year.
    I'm wondering if:
    I have answered the question and is it structured good enough to not make myself look like I can't teach my own son
    Here is what I'd like someone to read and see if its presented correctly.

    The vision I have for my son, he will succeed and excel faster at home without the distraction of other children. Liam thrives from the one-on-one rather than a classroom setting, I can see many if not all of our goals being met.
    The academic goals would be that he understands the concept and uses reading, writing, and, arithmetic so that he may go on to high education.

    What are "stagages"?

    Do you really think your 8 year old son has his own academic goals?

    Your seem to write a lot of run-on sentences. You should also check your use of verbs.

    "he understands and grasp" is not correct. Neither is "is highly motivate in learning"

    For clarity, people usually use hyphens in phrases like "one-on-one."
