Our son has become a better student after taking a Study Skills course and his ACT Test Score increased 6 points from practice test to his ACT/MME exam as a junior.
Great Lakes Educational Group has flexible tutors and we will send our other two children to them over the coming years.
Well, we got his score. Yeah for Nick...and you guys. He got an overall 22. English 22, math 25, reading 20
and science 22. We are very proud of him. Thanks to all of you for all of the hard work. Hope he was not to
hard headed. l-le is very happy and did not think he would score quite that high.

With the help of Great Lakes Educational Group, I was able to raise my ACT score four points to a 36. Bill, my tutor, cared very much about my personal development and success. I had several small areas that I repeatedly missed and he helped me pinpoint these areas and master the material. He worked with me one-on-one to explain the material so that fully I understood it. I was able to take several past tests with supplementary practice tests. Each week when I walked in, I was welcomed warmly and greeted by name. Everyone who works there was cheerful and glad to see me. Thank you for your help!
I wanted to follow up with some news & a huge “thank you!” to Great Lakes and both of Nicki’s tutors.
On NickI’s fall re-take of the ACT, she knocked Ít out of the park. She scored a 30 composite this time, adding 5 points to her previous score. Her individual scores Included a 32 ¡ri Reading, 31 in Science, a 30 in Math, as well as a 26 in English (all dramatic improvements).
We are absolutely thrilled, and attribute much of the success to the coaching and experience she had with Great Lakes. I’d be happy to be a reference.
Just wanted to share with you that Emily got a 92% on her math test!!!! She now has an A- in math. You are totally incredible - thank you so much for your patience and help with Emily.

I just wanted to let you both know that I got a 34 on my ACT, which is the highest score I have ever gotten. The highest score I ever got on any practice test was a 32. Here are my scores:
English-35 Math-34 Reading-33 Science-32 Writing-33
Thanks so much! I am very, very happy with my scores. Great Lakes Educational Group has made a tremendous difference for me and I really appreciate all the help you have given me.
Thanks for everything.

I must admit that up until a few years ago I wasn’t a proponent of test prep. To be honest, I thought it was somewhat of a scam. I always thought to do well on a test you had to have the knowledge of the subject to do well and you had the knowledge, test prep would help, but, not that much. Then I noticed how students who were taking ACT test prep classes at Great Lakes Educational Group tended to improve their ACT score by a number of points and I started to say hmmmm...I wonder if there is something to this test prep thing? .
My daughter took the ACT in 8th grade, I 0th grade, and during the MME this past spring. In Math and Science on this year’s spring MME/ACT she scored a 27 in each of those areas, a 32 in Reading and 34 in English for an average composite of 3O. On all three ACT tests her highest score in Math and Science was a 28.
My daughter is thinking about attending a University that requires a 31 to get a full ride, but she had always come up short of a 31.
In April I enrolled my daughter in an individual course at Great Lakes Educational Group, in Saline, that would focus on preparing her fo rjust the Math and Science portions of the ACT. She took the test again earlier this month. Keep in mind, the review only focused on Math and Science. She got her results back this week. Her English score dropped from a 34 to a 28. Reading stayed the same at 34 and her Math and Science scores both jumped to 33! For an average composite score of 32.
What interesting to me, is not that her scores in Math and Science improved, but by how much. I strongly believe she wouldn’t have got these scores without the knowledge she received from her teachers at Clinton High School plus the ACT prep through GLEG. I also found it interesting that her English score dropped by so much. I think this also helps make the case for test prep, because I know that a month before the MME test her English teacher was doing a ton of prep in English and she got a 34, but she had no test prep in English before the June test and her score dropped to a 28. The only regret I have is that I wish I would have put my daughter in the Reading and English test prep as well at GLEG!

I just wanted to say that I enjoyed meeting you tonight at Liberty. We have spoken on the phone and emailed each other but it’s always nice to meet one in person. I also want to take this opportunity to tell you how impressed we are with Great Lakes Tutoring and we have seen results in Robert’s grades and attitude toward school. I only wish we would have started earlier…but so pleased we started as soon as we did.
It’s funny how an outsider can tell Robert the SAME things We tell him, but it resonates much more with an objective person.
Thank you for being there for us! I will definitely be signing him up for the small group ACT class this summer, plus HE wants to do ¡t....now that is progress.
Both of my sons have been tutored at GLEG and I have been very pleased. Everyone that I have encountered at GLEG has been kind, easy to work with and helpful in getting my children what they need to succeed.
My younger son has been with Laurie for many years and the kindness, special care and great academic tutoring from her is to be commended. She communicates with me very well and constantly informs me of anything new and different that he has done. It has been a constant joy to work with her over the years. She has become a friend to our family as well as serving as a tutor.
My other son, this past year, was failing a math class. As the school year was coming to an end, we only had a short period of time to get him the tutoring necessary that would assist him in a desperate situation. Diane was an angel! She encouraged and made him believe that he could do it. In a very short time frame, she taught him the concepts necessary to pass the class. I was in awe of her professionalism, knowledge, mixed with compassion and understanding that she had for my son.
GLEG is the best! I would recommend it to anyone (and have many times!) They work with the individual student to meet their needs and make them successful! Thank you to the entire staff at GLEG for assistIng in my children’s academic growth!
“My daughter has been tutored in math at GLEG for six years and is now in 8th grade. The extra support has made such a tremendous difference, in both her grades and her confidenGe. There are a multitude of reasons why our family continues to be Impressed by the services and staff at GLEG, and among them are (1) each student’s needs are addressed indIvidually in a way that is not always possible in a regular classroom, and (2) the staff know the curriculum well and work on not on’y what the student needs to learn “this week”, but also proactively what they vAIl need to know and skills they will need to strengthen for upcoming units. We look forward to the pleasure of working with the staff for a long time to come.”
Hi Lauree - 1 told Tyler’s tutor that I would pass along Tyler’s scores to you once they were received; we got them in the mail today.
I am so pleased to report that Tyler scored a composite of 34.
English 32 (Writing 8)
We couldn’t be more pleased with this outcome. He went into tutoring unable to finish the English and Reading sections. He scored the highest in Reading and he finished the entire test! You wiIl recall he scored a 29 on the
test he took in June 2012.
Thank you so much and please let Carrie know. Tyler really appreciated all her help and support.
Best regards, Joanne Dence
I am a strong and enthusiastic advocate for the Great Lakes tutoring program! Both of my children participated in the 1:1 tutoring sessions and the results far exceeded my skeptical expectations! The monetary investment for the tutoring sessions is well worth it. Both children improved their scores by 4-6 points and qualified for college academic scholarships more than pay for the cost of the program. Our children felt very well prepared for the test day, comfortable with the test format, confident in their testing strategy and ready for each of the test sections. An unexpected benefit from the program was their ability to apply what they learned from the ACT prep to their high school curriculum. It's been a great experience for our family and a program we frequently recommend to our friends. Please give them a call to explore the many tutoring options available. Thank you Great Lakes!
Best Educational Support
Nicest group of teachers offer a variety of classes. Excellent experience for my son. His greatly increased ACT score made him eligible for a generous scholarship from the University that was his #1 choice. Thank you GLEG!
Professional staff, excellent tutors, friendly to the students.
We had a child with extreme test anxiety. After tutoring with Great Lakes, in a one on one setting, she scored 6 points higher than when she started. She was accepted into all 6 of the art programs she applied to. Her portfolio, grade point and extracurricular activities were exceptional but we are certain that the improved ACT score was critical to acceptance by University of Michigan's School of Art and Design and Miami of Ohio's College of Creative Studies. Thank you Great Lakes!
Top Notch Service
GLEG strives for maximum improvement for every student and has a vested interest in customer achievement.
I have had 3 of my children attend classes for ACT at Great lakes Educational Group with outstanding results. The lowest improvement was 3 points, and my son moved his score 5 points with the classes/testing/tutoring he received from Great lakes. I have 2 more to go and we will be signed up!
High quality tutoring, caring staff and friendly environment
There are always lots of smiling faces coming and going from Great Lakes Educational Group. My daughter is in her second year of tutoring; she's a more confident student now and that has translated into her speaking with her teachers on a more regular basis. Prior to going to GLEG she did well on her homework and mostly got A's and B's, but we always felt she was capable of more. I always hated her reports of not doing as well on a test as she thought she'd done...now I don't hear that anymore. She has better study habits and must be asking more questions in class--she always understands what is expected. I know she's taking better notes and she's meticulous about writing down her assignments in her daily planner. She's proud of her all A's; she works hard and is proud of her accomplishments. She never worries about her grades anymore, she just knows she's got a team of academic coaches that she can go to for anything...even on weekends if she runs into an obstacle. We love GLEG and we're happy to share our story of good news with anyone who asks. Our daughter is currently a sophomore at SHS and we're sure she'll continue her sessions at Great Lakes Educational Group for the next two years. It's true, the smartest students have tutors and she's learned to develop great habits that will help her be successful in all aspects of her life. Our daughter is more conscientious about her responsibilities--the self discipline was an unexpected benefit of her tutoring. She wants to be healthy and continue to be a great student--tutoring is a small price to pay for such great results. I couldn't ask for anything more. Thanks GLEG!! Sincerely, An extremely satisfied family
I have sent all three of my children to Great Lakes Educational Group and each child improved in test scores, overall subject grades, and was taught life long organizational skills. Two out of three of my children ( the youngest will go next year) have taken GLEG's individualized ACT program. One child went from a 22 to a 26 and the other went from a 27 to a 29. I highly recommend anyone to GLEG! They are truly a gifted group of educators!!
The right place
If what you seek for your child is a warm, friendly, effective place to learn and grow, then look no further. Our son has attended Great Lakes Educational Group for almost a year now, and ALL of us are happy with our experience. You know you've found a the right place when your child wants and enjoys going. Your decision is further reinforced when you as parents see growth and development in your child. Everyone there is committed to the success of the child, and it shows by their friendly greetings all the way to their invested questions and thoughtful suggestions. This place has made a world of difference to our family!
It was very helpful!
Great Lakes Education Group helped my son gain the skills and confidence he needed to raise his ACT score six points from his first practice test. It was just what he needed to prepare for the test!
