Learning doesn't have to be drab and routine. Look at something another way, and it will mean something different, something more, something you'll remember. Or use your other senses to hear a lesson, smell a fact, experiment with what works for you. Start as far back as it takes to find your entry point, and your journey will be so much easier from then on. Turn "I can't" into a thing of the past.

I spent ten years in the US Nuclear Navy, four in submarine service and four as an instructor at a land-based prototype in classroom and practical instruction of Chemistry and Radiation Control. I followed that with a stint at commercial nuclear power as a Radiological Technician.

The ASVAB is a test to determine how well you can learn, not necessarily what you know. As such, there are ways to take the test that can help you demonstrate this capability. These days people are turning to the military later in life than the formerly typical straight out of school, and some skills or practices may need brushing up, because you've been out of the mainstream educational paths. It's not like just getting back on a bicycle, there's some effort required to get those patterns back in play, whether it's grammar or math. Still, the subjects that have been taken before will come back, and the ones that may have been missed can be established to a level that could get you a better initial placement offer. Practice outside of the tutoring hours is helpful, so we can maximize our time to go over the things that you need, and affirm the things you already know. Expect 'homework.' As with most things, what you get out of it will depend on what you put into it! Depending on where your starting point is, some parts will be easier than others, and we'll work on the harder ones together.
