IREN offers traditional and nontraditional tutoring for the Ministry of Education (MEP) distance learning program and the US GED exam.
The MEP exams are given twice a year in the public schools of Santa Cruz over the span of two weekends. These exams are at the expense of the student and require locally accepted certification of grade work, otherwise, students must start in 6th grade as well as manage yearly inscription deadlines and exam fees.
The GED exams are administered in San Jose all year long. Students are required to sign up for the GED website and organize their trip to San Jose at their own expense. There are exam fees required.
MEP students are offered a structured classroom setting that meets once or twice a week. Tutors will teach and guide students through the state-regulated curriculum, offer test prep and educational assessment, counseling, and modification when needed.
GED students will have a set of tutors for individualized and group learning lessons.
All adult students are motivated to understand their learning style, create long term attainable goals and test prep.
