    Hello,

    I am a slightly confused and struggling student in his third year of HS. I was homeschooled through middle school poorly which kept my math and science grades the same. I have since then attended a school for special education (academic) needs and it has barely helped me, & teachers have been inconsistent. I am struggling to get my math skills up from 6th-7th grade level up to about 10th by the time I am determined to return to public school for my senior year. And probably for the same in science, and even literature. The thing I am most struggling with is college prep, even though I know what I want to do and which steps to take, I get stressed and lazy with it and fall to procrastination easily; meds such as adderall xr dont help with the "desire". I am looking for the most effective way to get my math/science/literature/etc grades up by normal level by 2013 when I plan to graduate and move on into college and pursue a meteorology/atmospheric sciences type career strongly involving math & science. It's been said that each generation (about each 40 years) gets dumber and dumber, so that is one factor that is working against me. Nice, nice.

    Some Sylvan Learning Centers offer advanced math tutoring.

    Unless you have some learning disability, they can be very effective in helping students learn higher math concepts.

    With a learning disability, you can stay in school until you are 21. Schedule all AP courses for your 6th and 7th year of HS and let us know how that goes.

    Nice trolling kid.

    So, let me get this straight. You're a dope at math - yet you want a degree that's "strongly involved with math and science."

    Sure. NASA can hardly wait to get ahold of you.

    Truthmatters would be an exceptional tutor. Send her a PM.

    Lol sure?!?! For a "newby" with only two posts you seem to have made a snap judgement on a board member. Methinks we have a clone, folks. :cool:
