How much tuition does he go to? Does he seem tired and stressed? Does he have time to play or just sit around and dream?

Sorry to say but seems like a burnt out child. There's too much tuition and academic work, no time for passion or relaxation.

Did you find out why was he disinterested? Was he distracted, disgruntled or lack of motivation? Maybe analysing the root cause of the issue would help in applying solutions?

I know but just dunno which one to let go. All subjects are average only. If letting tution off with only school supplementary will not be enough. Did ask if he wants to let go the tue& thurs tuition or wed and sat tution he said dunno. Haiz.. he dunno i even dunno how to handle, which to let go and what to let go. letting him go drum wants to destress him cos he likes. : ( sad sad sad dunno what to do. Any advise. shall i let go all? will he flung? I so worry.
