I hope as you read this that you and your family are well. We intend that you and yours will learn and succeed through solid online programs. To reach me most quickly it is helpful that you use remind.com to send me chat messages and get immediate feedback. For my classes, text to 81010 with one of these two codes: @paec-cbest for education preparation or @ paecrm21 for GED/HiSET and high school equivalency preparation. There is a remind app for both android and iphones, which you can download for free.
In addition to communicating with me using a chat message through remind.com, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org when immediate response is less critical.
I support learners who are seeking their GED, HiSET, CBEST, or CSET certificates. I also am currently the lead teacher for Pittsburg Unified School District's Summer Mathematics Institute - SMI. To do this, part of the program is help by zoom meetings in the evenings. These meetings are decided by the clients enrolled in class, so that for some the session might be 6:30 on Tuesdays, but for others it might be 7:30 on Wednesdays. Once people are enrolled I will send a chat message asking the group for their best time and day. The meetings are held to go over aspects of the tests that are not clearly laid out in the test providers’ web sites and to help encourage clients to know they can succeed.
My background includes a little over 30 years teaching in secondary education and over 20 years working with high school diploma programs here at Pittsburg Adult Education Center. We have a track record of over 98% success in both GED and CBEST over the last eight years, since we have tried to keep track. Our success is based on individual attention to each client. We are looking to have some face time with clients going into the summer.
I look forward to being of help to you. Take care!
