    Increase/Improve & Hyphen Problem

    1.) Do I say "My GPA has increased from X to Y / My GPA has improved from X to Y?

    2.) Given your firm's substantial presence in Asia, I can contribute (to your firm) through my ability to converse fluently in X and Y.

    Can I omit 'to your firm'? If not, can I substitute it with something else or rephrasing it in a more concise way?

    3.) I earned 4.0 GPA during a maximum-credit-loaded Spring semester.

    Do I use the hyphen correctly?

    Thank you.

    2.) Given your firm's substantial presence in Asia, I can contribute (to your firm) through my ability to converse fluently in X and Y.

    Try this: Given your firm's substantial presence in Asia, I can contribute positively to your organisation through my ability to converse fluently in X and Y.

    I am afraid the other parts of your question are incomprehensible to me.
