Do you have your high school diploma and are in need of basic skill sets in math and English that Father Time has helped us lose?  The East Haven Adult Learning Center understands the need to reacquire and define old skills we may have misplaced.  We’ve all struggled with the occasional misplaced comma, or the run-on sentence, not to mention the inability to multiply and divide fractions and decimals.  Let us help you refine these skills in classes that are made to be student friendly for those in need.  These old/new skills can help you return to college, find advancement in your present job, or give you the confidence to help your child with their homework.  Our instructors will lead you through a series of sequential steps that will bolster your confidence and self-esteem to tackle life-long learning. Don’t let your inability to remember a few simple rules impact your future. Come meet with us on Tuesday evenings to get you on the road to success.
