"This course was so wonderful! Dr. Carlin made the ACT test so much more manageable. Coming into the course, I knew little to nothing about the ACT. All I really knew was that it is a standardized test that is critical to do well on. Doing well on the ACT is crucial for getting into good colleges. Taking this course truly helped me realize exactly what the ACT was before I actually took it. I learned so many essential test-taking strategies, and I was able to perform well when the day of the ACT came (I scored a 30 on this attempt). Also, I took the fall ACT right after taking the class, and initially, I had been planning on only taking the spring ACT. Doing so well on the fall ACT has boosted my confidence regarding the spring ACT, and I hope to score even higher. After all, 4 years of high school DID boil down into 4 hours, just as Dr. Carlin noted, and being prepared for those 4 hours was so crucial. I'm sure it will have a huge impact on my future and the schools I am accepted into." ~Janelle, ACT Prep Student "This course forced me to sit down and study which was exactly what I needed, a little extra help to improve my scores." ~Marian High School Student "This course was so helpful. Now I'm not clueless about the ACT! Thanks so much - it helped a ton!" ~Ryan "Thank you so much for everything you did for me! I can't wait to take my test, I haven't stopped studying and using all of the tips you gave me! Have a wonderful weekend and thank you again! You're an amazing teacher!" ~Victoria

What are parents saying about Dr. Carlin?
"Our daughter improved her ACT score from 27 before the course to 30 after the course. The most significant improvement was in english, but she also improved in reading and science. This qualifies her for $1,500/yr in additional scholarship money, well worth the investment in the course." ~Parent from Kalamazoo
"My son took the ACT prep course before taking the ACT in the spring of his Junior year. It definitely made a difference in his approach to the test and in the results, Composite 29. He retook the ACT in fall of his Senior year and his Composite went up to a 31. Any student planning to attend college after high school should take advantage of this opportunity. He has gotten into the colleges of his choices and it helped with scholarships too. Thank You!" ~Cindy
"Dr. Carlin was great to work with. Due to scheduling conflicts, we needed to split the location where Noah took his classes. Dr. Carlin was more than willing to work with us. Noah felt much more confident about taking the ACT after taking the courses with Dr. Carlin. He always came out of the class excited to practice the skills he had learned. Getting a 31 on his first attempt at the ACT helped to broaden the schools he could apply to as well. I have already recommended Dr. Carlin's course to several friends, and plan on enrolling my younger son when he is ready." ~Mch
"My daughter was reluctant to take the online ACT course, as she was convinced she wouldn't score any better than the first time. She only sat in on 4 of the 6 sessions but scored 2 points better (25 to 27). I think it helped her be more confident at her 2nd attempt. Thank you! Worth the price." ~Mitch
"Dr Carlin's approach helped my son understand how to answer questions and how to study for the exam. He took the ACT test twice, scoring a composite18 and 19, and after Dr Carlin's class scored a 24. This made all the difference getting accepted to the college of his choice and with scholarship money." ~Shannon
"I have three kids in Top 20 Universities. Dr. Carlin helped all three kids work to obtain the scores they needed on the ACT for acceptance. His assistance has been invaluable. I would recommend any parent looking for someone to provide test preparation for his or her child to call Dr. Carlin." ~Anne
"My daughter took Dr. Carlin's class last spring. She took the ACT this fall and received a 28. From previous exams, the highest score she had achieved was a 24. She improved in every section, but English was the most dramatic (she went from a 25 to a 34). She is applying for colleges with more confidence knowing that she is putting her best foot forward. I have 3 more children and I will definitely have each of them take Dr. Carlin's class." ~Parent
