Student Testimonials



Before starting the course, I was sceptical about the quality of the online course. But the whole course was very good and lucid. The best part is the unbiased and honest evaluation of assignments. To sum up, the whole experience with ACT was splendid and everything was worth it.



This course helped me to improve student-teacher relationship which will in turn help in better classroom management skills. I am working in The Bloomington Academy in Ajman.



It was a great experience overall. My evaluator/tutor was very helpful throughout the course. I felt very confident on my assignments and tests.



It's convenient and rewarding! I can study at any time and place that I feel like to. The notes given are clearly explained. Feedback given by the evaluator was very clear and constructive. I am working in the TAR University College.
