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. To do this, the test-prep specialists offer in-person camps and programs and online classes where they teach the skills students will most likely face on the actual ACT. 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.
The instructors at Creations Bayou, formerly known as Sadie’s Closet, encourage students to let their artistic instincts run wild during painting classes, sewing classes, and children's summer camps. In a flurry of brushstrokes, aspiring Claude Monets create their own interpretations of reference pieces, painting wall-worthy pictures depicting lovebirds on a tree branch, multicolored sunsets, and blossoming foliage. During camp sessions, youngsters take on a different artistic endeavor each day, tie-dyeing pillowcases, constructing picture frames, or spelling out their favorite Supreme Court Justice’s name in glitter. Creations Bayou also regularly hosts art-themed parties for both kids and adults.
