"[The tutor] did an excellent job in structuring ACT prep work for my daughter. She also related to her very well, helped zone on areas of challenge, and really motivated her to do a lot of sample problems/sample tests in a condensed time frame. She helped my daughter set goals and organize herself. The net result was a ... composite score increase of 3 points, which is awesome; although as a parent, I’m equally happy with her gaining the experience of setting a goal, putting in work, and seeing a positive result."
