Meet Dr. Jasper
'I can't say enough how grateful I am for NavaED. I was at a complete dead end on passing my GKT after multiple attempts. I had a one -on-one session with Ms. Jasper. She provided material that was actually a mirror of the test, unlike a book I was studying out of. I also had a group session with Ms. Ferry. Once again I gained beneficial knowledge and strategies for the test. Hours of hard work with teachers who KNOW what they're doing was so worthwhile. One thing I loved is they have actually taken the GKT and know what we are all up against. The fact that they did that just shows you they are willing to go the extra mile for their students. By far the best thing I've ever done to prepare for the GKT. The following day I took my test and passed. So happy with my experience!"

"I found myself in a rut with taking the GKT and knew I needed more. Shortly thereafter, I came across a sign on FGCU's campus about GKT tutoring with NavaED. I took advantage of this opportunity to get me over the hump. While we focused on reading techniques, interpretation of the questions, and practice tests that were applicable to the GKT, it was Annmarie's pep talks that helped me most with my anxiety and confidence. When I walked out of the exam, I looked down at the piece of paper and it said PASS! Moments later, I called Annmarie to thank her as she had such an impact on me and was so supportive.
I would definitely recommend NavaED to anyone who needs a little help or a lot of help with facing standardized tests. This company really prepared me and I know they can do the same for you."
"From just two study sessions, I was able to pass the Subject Area Exam. I gained confidence to finish up my last semester of college and go onto graduation. Kathleen Jasper really gave me the tools I needed to take control of this test."
-Garrett Cohen, Florida Gulf Coast University.
"I am so grateful that I was put in contact with NavaED! I was struggling with the reading section of the GKT and after getting tutored I finally passed! I received assistance with my own concerns with the test and most importantly, given the support and a confidence boost that I would beat this test!"
-Brooke Bothun, Florida Gulf Coast University.
"I was so nervous to take my GKT the second time around. I was on a real time crunch to study for my English, reading, and essay sub-sections. I went to NavaED the day before my test; studying on my own just didn't seem to be enough. The staff at NavaED really seemed to care about how I did. When I came in we didn't miss a beat. In the 90 minutes I was there, I learned more than I had on my own in weeks! I passed my subsections with flying colors!"
-Cara Litvin, Florida Gulf Coast University
