  I just got my ACT scores back....AND I GOT AT 32!  3 MORE POINTS! Specifically in math, I got 4 more points than last time! Thanks so much!  
  I recently found out that I already have 6 college credits because of my ACT score. I emailed my mom and told her that your college prep course was one of the best investment we have made. It saved me time and money. I just thought you would want to know that!  
With your class and advice I was able to bring the score up from a 20 to 25 and from a 17 on the math to a 22!  I will now be able to apply to the colleges I am looking at with confidence and security.
