Our Smart Place has been very helpful to me with ACT. I would attend class every Saturday morning to practice to see where I stand. There were a few Saturday's where I got discouraged but my instructors always had positive attitudes and encouraged me that I can do it! However, by putting in hard work I achieved great results by passing the ACT with a higher score then required. By putting in hard work my instructors would assign homework to practice strategies on how to crack the ACT and keep the faith. Prior to taking the test I contacted my instructor a few days before to take a practice test. On Saturday morning I felt confident and remembered everything that was said. I used the 1st 15 minutes for the passage I knew best and the 2nd 15 minutes for the next best passage I was confident with. Then the last 5 minutes I skimmed through the last two passages and I used the letter of the day method (LOTD) and answer the best that I could.
Thank you so much I appreciate all the help and the encouragement!!
THANK YOU!!! This year has been a breakout year for me. I have always loved math however my grades didn't always reflect this statement . With the help and patient of the Our Smart Place staff, my grades have soared and so has my confidence. I went from and average student in math to an excellent student I math. With the help of this tutoring service, I was able to stay on the honor roll all year.
WOW! What can I say? Our Smart Place not only taught me all the basics of algebra to help prepare me for a course but also taught me how to have fun while tackling a difficult subject. I actually am now looking forward to taking college algebra because not only do I have the skills and knowledge but I have the confidence. Thank you just does not say it strong enough, but I do thank Our Smart Place for all their time and help. And don’t forget, you said, “Call anytime”!
We just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful service that Our Smart Place provided. The instructors know what they teach. Homer was pleasant to work with. He made learning algebra very understandable and at the same time enjoyable. We were very pleased with the service and would definitely recommend them to help with the tutoring that one would need. He was encouraging and upbeat throughout the time we needed the service.

Hello my name is Ashley.
I go to a Military School. Our Smart Place has been tutoring me for the last two years and for the first time I have received a gold medal in math on the State test. The great thing about Our Smart Place is that the instructor was able to tutor over the phone; he lives in Florida and I live in California. Every Monday for the past two years I would spend one hour with the instructor and he was able to help me with any math problems. What a great teacher !!!! Just last week I was in tears because I did not understand my 7th grade Pre-Algebra. It took a matter of 10 minutes for the instructor to explain the problem and I really understood it after he explained the problem to me.
Thank you Our Smart Place for making math easy!!
