  • If you get to the math part of your learning I don't think you'll do better than Kahn Academy. It's free and supported by Bill Gates' foundation. He didn't create it. He just believes in free education.

  • You can probably check with your local library and see if they have a homeschool section. If so, they should have lots of free books that will give you a refresher course or even a copy of the GED test to review and refresh.

  • There are several sites that offer free introductory or review classes. Some, like Alison, offer diplomas and certificates for free though they are NOT accredited. However, they are endorsed by Advance Learning and the  relevant publishing organisations including British Council, Microsoft, Health and Safety Authority and the Construction Safety Partnership.

  • congrats on your new start!!! and I think school is a great way to make a life change!!!!! : ) I went to college for some of my Bachelor courses and all of my Masters were online. it depends what kind of learner you are-if computer classes are for you or not per sa. they aren't for everyone-some people need the physically class sessions to gain anything. there are chat rooms, email, even phones, to communicate with your teachers and classmates-its pretty neat. it might seem overwhelming at first-but just remember to breath and don't forget why you're doing it in the first place...and that's your motivator!!!!

  • You might also check with your nearest community college. Some now have online preparatory courses in math and English.
