Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
