My name is Jaime Alvarado, and I am 24 years old. I quit high school in the 9th grade. Knowing how to read at a 5th-grade level and spell at an even lower level made me self-conscious. I vowed I would get my GED and tried, on and off, taking GED classes. I finally attended a class that was using a program called Reading Horizons. After spending 19 hours on this program, I have improved my reading to almost a ninth-grade level. The post-evaluation report stated that there was a change of three years and one month from the pre-evaluation score. This program really works! I feel more confident about myself and I am finally able to feel myself achieving my goals!
