Hello everyone.

I am 23 Years old came to the US 13 years ago. Due to various reasons, mainly having to restart my studies from 1st grade in english I only made it to 5th grade before dropping out of school and getting a job as an IT Manager.

I am looking for a way I can homeschool on an Ipad. This is because I travel a lot and I dont have a way to carry all the books I would need with me. I used saxon math for a little bit but was not able to continue as I had to travel non-stop for 8 months and couldn't drag all those books around with me.

I am pretty bright otherwise, I have a job as a successful computer manager and I write websites and code. My reading level is probably fine but everything else is around 5th grade level.

I can't find any apps that are actually used to teach, all the ones I can find are to practice, which doen't help much if I don't know the subject Im trying to practice. If anyone knows of a program that I can use or even a website that I can use to get my education it would be great. I plan on taking my GED at some point but I have never made it past 5th grade so Im not sure how that will work.....

Thank you for your help!

What you're looking for is not "homeschooling." :-)

You could find a book that has sample GED exams in it and begin your studies there. You'd have a better idea of what you need to know.

Also, you'd probably be better off looking for on-line classes, but you'd probably have to buy hard copies of the texts used.

Do you know any good online classes that are affordable and good?

Bridgeway High School also offers high school education for adults.  Some of the remedial courses do begin down at a fourth grade level but allow adult learners to move very quickly to high school level skills.  Check it out at bridgewayhighschool.com.  Courses are not on an Ipad but are very transportable and a diploma will go much further than a GED.
