Taught by native French speakers, Alliance Francaise courses use language immersion plus video, audio, and textbooks to teach communication skills to students planning travel in the French-speaking world, seeking an advantage in the global business world, or craving a deeper understanding of cartoon skunks. Courses are offered at every skill level, which can be determined by taking Alliance Francaise's placement test (required for all new students except beginners). Classes are limited to 10 students to ensure every budding Franco-speaker gets individualized instruction. Today's deal includes the cost of a Connexions textbook and CD (normally $60), though it does not cover the cost of berets or berets stuffed with baguettes. Many courses meet on Saturday and weekday evenings to accommodate busy professionals and full-time students.

A 98% improvement in math skills and understanding. An 89% improvement in attitudes toward math. These are just two of the many positive statistics reported at Mathnasium. The reason for such positive results? A method that includes a thorough evaluation of what each student knows in order to tailor an individualized tutoring plan to their specific needs. Tutors work one-on-one with students to boost their skills and confidence, employing both written and mental math material during lessons. This hard work pays off on report cards, test scores, and any time someone needs to quickly calculate how much it'll cost to replace Mom's favorite vase.
According to ACT Mastery's data, its ACT prep methods help improve the scores of 92% of its students by an average of three points.

Courses cover math, reading, english, writing, and science topics, yielding overall higher composite scores.
ACT Mastery is the brainchild of Craig Gehring, who achieved perfect scores on both the SAT and ACT in 2003. After news of his scores spread, parents reached out to Craig, and he soon began tutoring fellow test-takers. Since then, he's published SAT ACT Mastery, which explains the methods he used to get his perfect scores, and developed the successful ACT Mastery curriculum.
