Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

Does this sentence make sense:

"The teacher says he's an intelligent, but very DISTRACTED."

Note: By 'distracted', I mean with a tendency to become distracted.

    No, it doesn't.  "Distracted" doesn't mean "a tendency."  It's an adjective, and if you say "an" you have to follow the adjectives "intelligent" and "distracted" with a noun.

    Delete 'an'. Swap 'very' for 'easily'.
