You better look into your Universities program. You cant be one class away for a few reasons: Colleges do not offer certification - the state does. The state requires many things - and if you were not told about the tests - then you are far longer than 1 class away. the basic skills test (CBEST) is required for entry into any teacher certification program. The state also requires you to have subject matter verification (CSET) as well as student teaching - which is more than one semester. You may be one class away from your masters - but that is insufficient to teach in our state.

Ultimately it's up to the student to learn the course material. Having a good teacher or professor is nice, but this will probably not be the first time you will have a teacher who isn't good at what he does. Having a bad instructor simply means you need to do more of the learning yourself. You said it yourself: you feel like you should've began studying a while back, and now you feel flustered and stressed. If you have difficulties studying on your own, try making a small study group. First thing you should do though is relax, and realize that starting to study now is better than worrying about your exams and delaying it any further. A lot of other students seem to be in the same boat you are, so use them as a resource.

You said it is coming to near the end of the year. Even if your teacher changes his style, it'll still not make a difference. If it were near the beginning of the year, things would be easier to solve

You need them both the get a teaching credential in CA at the secondary level. The CBEST is basic skills and the CSET is for the subject you are being certified to teach. In your case you would take it for English

Hi, I home educated my kids till they were 6 then they started school, I just bought all the books from WHsmith, or you can buy coloured paper write a letter on each paper also draw a picture on to make it intresting for your child once they know their ABC you can muddle these papers up and ask them to put the Alphabet in order, same for the 123, you can use Lego for maths, my kids liked that, I also use to draw a picture on a coloured card like a butterfly for my daughter and rocket for my son write sums on it then on another card I will write the answers cut them out and after the kids worked the sum out they will find the number and stick it on the picture, start of with easy sums and slowly build up, some kids pick up quick some need more time, my daughter was so quick at learning but my son who is older than her kept forgeting but we got their in the end lol for reading buy or get books from the library that have less words and more pictures, my son didn't start reading himself until he was 6, hope I've helped :) good luck
