ACT English

I have helped hundreds of ACT students get the score they need to succeed. I will teach you the test from the inside out. Once you master the structure of the test, you will be able to identify the correct answer right away. With hard work and practice, you will be able to succeed on the ACT exam.

In addition, I teach English as a Second Language to adults. When learning another language, phonics, pronunciation and intonation are important to increasing fluency.
