GED Summer Help

Just because it is June, does not mean that you should slack off studying for your GED. In fact, it may be the best time. Why?

Teachers are off work. Many will be looking for other things to do and tutoring/mentoring a GED candidate for their GED tests may be just what they are looking to do. Plus it will look great on their resume. Call a teacher you know..... today!

Learning Centers typically have fewer students during the summer months. Therefore, you will get more one-on-one attention. Check the schedule of your local GED Learning Center and get signed up today!

Even though it is summer, your local GED Testing Center should be continuing to offer the GED testing. Call today and schedule an appointment.

Good luck!!

GED Math Anxiety

Have a student who just cannot pass that GED math test? Have they taken the test more than once and failed? Now they are scared to even try.... but they have to pass so that they can get the job to support their family.

If you have a student who struggles with GED Math, or you are a student struggling with GED math, you are not alone!

Again, I am working with a young adult who has failed the GED math test twice. Although she is determined to continue studying and attempt it again... she is a bit scared. She knows that if she takes it again this year, and fails again, she will have to wait until next year, 2009.

When she returns to the tutoring center, our first step will be to re-evaluate where she is mathematically.

Then we will go from there. In the meantime, I will be encouraging her and letting her know that she is not alone.

There are many GED candidates who struggle with the GED math and have taken the test more than once.
