Subject: Explaing word problems to a Grade 3 student

I am tutoring children of different ages. Last time, a boy in Grade 3 could
not understand the word problem. Example: Nina had to run 89 meters. After
she ran for 15 meters, she fell. How many more meters did she have to run? I
tried to draw pictures and graphs, but he did not understand saying that his
teacher does the same, but it does not work for him. How I can explain this
concept?

Thank you!
Lena, Edmonton
