How To Enroll At Seeds During COVID-19
Adult Basic Ed: Free online tutoring for GED®, HiSET®
Registration. Orientation. Enrollment.
At Seeds, those words essentially mean the same thing – to get you into the FREE tutoring program and on the path to earning your high school equivalency (GED® or HiSET®).
During COVID-19, we’ve had to close our classrooms. Fortunately, tutoring continues remotely by phone and video conference. But if the classrooms are closed, is Seeds of Literacy still accepting students?
YES. YOU CAN BECOME A STUDENT AT SEEDS OF LITERACY – EVEN DURING OUR COVID-19 CLOSURE. It’s still as easy as ever to start your high school equivalency journey at Seeds.
Call us at 216.661.7950.
We will send you an email providing dates, times, and an access code to join us on a video conference for new student orientation.
Weekly Orientations During COVID-19
- 1pm OR 6pm (choose the one that works best for you)
Pick the time that works best for you and then join the video conference from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Join the meeting at the time you selected. A link will be sent to you once you complete the orientation form.
During the videoconference, we will tell you about Seeds of Literacy. We’ll cover what makes Seeds unique, as well as how we have had to adapt to our program during the pandemic. Then we’ll tell you how to access our tele-tutoring and video tutoring offerings.
There are two short, simple tests you need to take to help us determine what coursework to give you.
- You will be asked to read out loud for 60 seconds with a tutor.. That’s all Seeds needs to determine your reading level.
- If you have not already passed the Math GED test, a staff member will email you a 35-question math test to determine your math level.
You will talk with us about how to start FREE tutoring.
Once you’ve completed these 5 steps, you are now a Virtual Student at Seeds of Literacy! You can participate in as many tutoring sessions as you’d like, Monday through Thursday, or practice on your own by watching one of our recorded lessons.
After it’s safe to return to our classrooms, you will be asked to take the TABE – Test of Adult Basic Education. Don’t worry, this is not a pass or fail test. This test simply helps us assign you work based on your progress so far.
Out of State Students: We will contact you about alternatives methods for you to take the TABE.
