GED

I have great admiration for individuals who are focused on earning their GED. It show a tremendous amount of courage to face this type of challenge. I find that the most difficult aspect of the process for students is getting past the fear of facing material that is unfamiliar to them. I believe that working together we can build both skills and confidence and that students will find that they have abilities that they never realized they possessed.

WONDERFUL TUTOR

I have been working with John for a while now we are doing the math part of the TEAS, every time we have a tutoring session, they are the best. I love how all our lessons together I learn something new. I always feel smarter when I leave his sessions. He works with you until you understand. The best thing is that he doesn't make you feel stupid. I hope to continue working with him until I am ready to take the teas test.
