Testimonials

The following are just a few of the testimonials we have recently received from students.


Heather goes from a projected 22 to a real 31

“I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to do these ACT Prep classes. I know they have helped a lot of people, including me. I hadn’t taken the ACT before, but last year when I took the Plan Test it said my projected score for the ACT was a 22! I knew I could do better than that, and I think your class helped me to do my best, which is really all I wanted. Thanks again for everything! - Heather


Erin goes from a 24 to a 30

“I just wanted to let you know how the test scores went! My composite went from a 24 to a 30! Thank you so much, your class has gotten me my dream score!”  


Joan increases her score from a 25 to a 31

“I did it! I got the 30+ you asked for...in fact, I got a 31. I am so excited and very shocked. Thanks again for all your help!”


James works from a 26 to a 30

Hey Mr. Franklin, I'm just emailing to say that your class definitely helped my ACT score. I received a 26 on my December test, which was right before your classes started. For the April 14th test, I got a composite score of 30. This score has qualified me for the Presidential Scholarship for three colleges that I am interested in. Thank you very much for your time and devotion to help us in the class. It really helped me out!


Jessica improves from a 21 to a 25

“You rock!!! I got my goal of 25. Thank you so much!”


Mary worked up from a 25 to a 30

“I am excited to tell you about my April ACT test results! I have a composite score of 30! My composite increased 5 points and my English went up 11 points!!! Thank you for all your help!”


Allen works his way from a 21 to a 24

“First of all, THANK YOU for everything. Your coaching, assistance, inspiration, and many words of wisdom have most definitely resulted in positive outcomes. Reading which was his most problematic subject on the April exam improved most dramatically by 7 points. Needless to say, we are THRILLED. Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!”


Dave earns a 31

Thank you SO MUCH for the invaluable Better Test Scores class. My son scored a 31 on his ACT. That was a key piece that allowed him to be admitted to his first choice college - the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My son took the class with two buddies ... each had boosts from the class. One student has test taking challenges and it really helped him deal with those challenges effectively. So all three of the students that I watched closely got in their first choice school. I highly recommend this class to others hoping for the best results on their quest to get into their preferred colleges. Kudos to you and everyone involved with your class!

Lauren improves 6 points from a 17 to a 23

Just wanted to let you know Lauren got a 23 on her June ACT. She raised her score from a 17 to a 23 and could have never done it without your help. You helped all three of my girls improve their scores, but you particularly helped Lauren and for that I am forever grateful. You are a truly inspirational mentor and will always be remembered for being a fantastic teacher. I will continue to refer other parents and students to you. Thank you again.
