You should see improvement as soon

As you start making your payments. 

Its always better, Score wise, to make one large payment each month rather than small payments throughout the month. I recomend that you make your payment either as soon as your bill comes in or if you use a bill pay account, Sign up for e-bills and set up a payment for 5 days before the due date.  

Regular payments on a regular schedule show creditoprs that you understand how to manage your credit. 

There are several tricks to raising your score. But a good solid payment history is your best bet to inproving your score. They call it "Credit History"  and that is what will raise your scores. The longer your history the better y9our scor.e.
