At the GK Academy, we specialize in one-on-one tutoring for standardized tests such as the ACT.  We don’t offer standard classroom tutoring.  We don’t offer completely independent self-study for the ACT.   We are your best choice for personalized ACT tutoring whether online or in person.  At the GK Academy, we believe that superior tutors and academic coaches are in short supply.  Why is this the case?  Well, unfortunately there sometimes a lack of prestige associated with tutoring that demotivates many highly skilled tutors from using their gifts to help educate our youth.. At the GK Academy, we are trying to change this by attracting highly gifted tutors for the ACT and SAT.  Please see our video below, which will tell you a little bit more about our vision.
