Classes (aka Tutoring)

Do you want to earn your HSE (high school equivalency: GED®, HiSET®), but you need a class schedule that works for you? At Seeds of Literacy, we understand that lots of adults have busy lives. That’s why we we’re flexible.

“Class time” is really “individual tutoring” time. You don’t need an appointment, and you attend only when you can.

But don’t take our word for it — hear from a 2021 graduate in the video and check out the frequently asked questions below.

Can I come to MORE THAN ONE (individual tutoring) time?

Absolutely! You’re not stuck to just one class time. You can attend as many class sessions as possible – even three classes a day if you want! The more often you come to class, the faster you will make progress.

Do I have to come to class (individual tutoring time) EVERY DAY?

Come to class as often as you can! That will help you build up your skills. You don’t have to come to class every day, though. Come to at least two or three classes a week to keep making good progress. You can decide what days and class times work best for you.

What does class/individual tutoring look like in the Physical Classroom?

GED® classes at Seeds of Literacy aren’t set up like classes you might have had before.  We don’t have one teacher at the front of the room who teaches everyone the same thing at the same time. Instead, each student does work at their own skill level and at their own speed. There are tutors to help you one-to-one with whatever you’re learning.

This is a short video of a real class session at Seeds of Literacy. You’ll see that some students are choosing to work by themselves. Other students are getting help from tutors.

How long before I take my HSE test?

Each person is different and needs a different amount of time to get ready for the high school equivalency (HSE) test. Our program lets you take as long as you need. We have classes all year long, so you can stay with us until you’re ready.

Pretty much everyone will need at least a few months of tutoring before they have the HSE skills they need. Most people will need longer. It might take a few years, and that’s normal. The important thing is that you know how important getting your HSE is, and you stick with it.

Here are 9 factors that impact how long it will take you to earn your GED.
