     Along with grades and academic class load, a high school student’s ACT test score plays a major factor in determining college admission.  Many qualified students could improve their chances of getting into a better college with a higher ACT test score, but they do not always have the resources that can help them succeed. Many students from more affluent areas have…

Six weeks goes fast like an arrow. when I came here first, I thought we talked to children and helped other tutors.

While I made it, I studied and then was accustomed to using and applying it. So if I will have a chance to make a presentation, I'll use Prezi with confidence.

What I felt about Tutor/Mentor Connecntion…
