I'm a busy student, I never really had the time to just sit down and prepare for my standardized tests so my scores were never what I wanted them to be. Because of this, I have only attended a few of Mr. Stewart's camps. But, the strategies he taught me has made a significant difference on both my ACT and SAT scores. My ACT English score went from a 28 to a 36 and my ACT score overall increased by 4 points. I am now getting scores that I thought were impossible for me to achieve. I owe it all to Mr. Stewart and I am thankful to have had the opportunity to work with him. I highly recommend all of his programs with no hesitation because with his help, I am a step closer to getting into some of the most competitive universities in the nation.
I just scored a 25 on my latest ACT test. I accomplished this because I utilized Mr. Stewart's program. After meeting with him for 5 sessions and applying his strategies and methods I was able to improve my score by 6 points.
