About this tutor

Luke and Penny Carda own and operate Great Goals ACT.

We met in high school and married in 1989. We partner to bring the highest quality experience to each student. Our advertising consists mainly of word of mouth and referrals from school counselors who know how effective our program is! We strive to help every student raise their score and gain confidence in themselves. 

I have lots of experience and hundreds of references. My students rate my teaching 9-10 out of 10.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to have a phone interview or personal interview with a parent first to make sure I understand the needs of their child. I ask a parent to accompany their student to meet me in person for the first session. We discuss specific needs and set up a plan. I like to maintain contact with the parent after sessions to ensure growth and accountability for the expectations we all have.
