It's fine to put "also" at the end of a sentence, although it does sound less formal. All of these have the same meaning:

I do too

I do also

I do as well

There are English speakers who would object, and say it's not proper, but there is a wide variation in how English is actually spoken and you will frequently hear "also" at the end of (usually short) sentences or questions. However, as your lesson suggests, if you want to speak in this proper way then put "also" before the verb:

I also do.

Other examples:

She will go to the store too

She will go to the store as well

She will also go to the store.
