Thank you again for all your help getting the girls ready to take the ACT. Round one is behind them now. Amazingly, they both said math and science were easier than they thought. Thank you as well for the resumes. They have really helped. (B) had her first interview and was also offered the job and will be working at Valleyfair this summer as a face painter.

"Dr. Nakita Savant was my tutor for the A.C.T. exam for a long period, and her help was priceless. Even though I came from another country, she prepared me for this exam in a couple of months. Her way of tutoring was new for me, because I weren’t set on the studying of different rules, but learned a lot of strategies which helped me to improve my scores. My results were much better than I expected, and I don’t think that I could do this without her help. She’s smart, open-minded, and communicable, so the lessons are very interesting and go by quickly. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a tutor."
— K. Golova, 2017
"Dr. Savant helped me set my goals toward my progress, and also she kept me focused by decreasing my writing anxiety. Dr. Savant is an excellent motivator, compassionate and knowledgeable. She is very passionate about what she is doing. I was able to overcome academic and personal setbacks for the past years and my graduation is for August this year. I strongly recommend her services; she made me believe that I could do it. Thank Dr. Savant for your encouragement, kindness, and support. Dr. Savant, many thanks from the bottom of my heart. You are my coach for life."
