“Before I started sessions with Mr. Patel, I did not expect much of myself. My ACT-Math score was at 20, and I was struggling to find a way to truly improve. When we started, we began to work rigorously on areas of Math that I struggled with. Rather than conforming to one base curriculum, Mr. Patel personalized my lessons to focus on areas that I specifically struggled with. For example, I constantly struggled with Plane Geometry and Trigonometry. Thanks to his teaching, I correctly answered every Geometry and Trig question on the April ACT. After two months of sessions, I took the December ACT and received a 27, improving 7 points from my original score. We continued rigorous lessons until February when we began to take practice tests. The diversity of tests that Mr. Patel offered were extremely helpful in showing me everything the live ACT would throw at me. In the end, Mr. Patel’s teaching gave me the skills and confidence I needed to take the test. I received a 33 on the Math section, a whole 13 points up from my original score and a 30 on the whole test. Because of Mr. Patel, I went from being below the National Average to being in the 98th Percentile in the entire United States. My time with Mr. Patel proved that hard work really does pay off, and determination goes a very long way. I can’t thank him enough for my success.”
