Hi,
I would like to say that her grades are a bit higher than they were.
Could I say: " Her grades have improved, but only in a small amount."
Thanks.

    You'd say "Her grades have improved, but only by a small amount."

    Alternatively, you could say:

    "Her grades have improved, but only a little."
    "Her grades have improved, but not by much."
    "Her grades have improved, but only marginally."

    Etc.

    A more direct and simple way would be to say "Her grades have improved a small amount".

    Otherwise, as Cycloneviv says, it would be "...by a small amount"
