“Am I too old to get the GED?”

I have been coaching women for several years. Specifically, I have primarily worked with mothers who finally have the time for themselves now that their youngest kids are in school full time. But, they are worried that they have waited too long. One woman told me she Googled, “Am I too old to get my GED?” when she was first thinking about going back to school.

One of my amazing students just completed the final test section to become a GED graduate this week. I told her, “20 years is fantastic; it’s better than 21 years!”

I have studied and researched students who have been trying to earn their GEDs for years, often for decades. If you think you might be too old today, I’ve got some bad news for you, my dear. You are going to be just a little bit older tomorrow. Ten years from now? Yep, you’ll be ten years older.

Don’t let another decade go by. Let’s get your GED now.

Let’s do it together. I am here to help you. Don’t wait because the other bad news is that I am also going to be older tomorrow!

I understand some of the underlying fears that hold people back. One of the fears is thinking that we are too old to do something new. Our culture often collectively assumes that the GED is for a younger population. When I tell people that I teach GED-seeking adults, they almost always assume that my students are 18-ish years old. In fact, my students typically range between 30 and 60 years old. If you’re older than 60, please call so I can increase that age range!

If you have recently thought, “I should try to get my GED,” you are ready now. Don’t wait.

Call, text, or email today if you’d like my help to make a plan. If you don’t want to contact me, there are so many resources available to you. Call your local community college or Google “free GED classes near me” or “free GED classes online.”

You’ve already taken the first step. KEEP GOING. I don’t even know you, and I’m proud of you already.
