...Since leaving the classroom, I have tutored many students on the ACT test, with reading students generally improving anywhere from 5 to 10 points. Overall, my students generally gain at least 4-5 points in their composite scores even after taking classes on the ACT before I meet them. I also have worked for GAINS Education Group, as well as other educational consulting firms.
