I’m 30 years old. I dropped out of high school when I was 18 and in the 10th grade when I dropped out of school. I felt like a very dumb person cause I was a very slow learner. I always wished that I couldÂ be as smart as some of my friends and family members but some things were harder to learn than others. I just found out that I was born with a tumor on my brain that was my problem of figuring things out. But I want to get my GED and maybe get in a field that I know that I’m good at. But I need to find out how I can get help with online classes.
I need one on one with a teacher that could help me when I need help. Please help find a way to get my dreams to become a reality.
Crystal, 30, Dayton, Ohio
Congratulations on going for your GED! School must have been very frustrating for you. When you learn at a different pace than the rest of your class, it leaves you feeling dumb. But all you really need is extra time to figure things out. It’s not that you can’t learn, but that you have special requirements for learning. Being stuck in a class with 40 other kids racing to get through the materials… well, that’s just not tailoring the learning to your needs.
The great thing about online learning is the ability to self-pace. That means, you take as much time as you want… you repeat anything you need to repeat. You go at your own speed, so that you don’t have to worry about keeping up with a class.
The GED Academy’s GED prep program is designed so that you can go as fast or slow as you need to, plus we offer a free teacher help line that you can call whenever you have a problem or need an explanation. Feel free to give us a call at 1-888-880-2164 to learn more and see if The GED Academy is right for you.
The Ohio Department of Education has a page on their site with information about the GED and GED test preparation in Ohio. Other places to look for help would be your local community college, library, or adult education program. Explain your special circumstances, and ask them how they pace their classes and how they provide one-on-one help.
