open quote

Zach went up to a 26 on his ACT! That was 6 points above his baseline and 3 points from his last ACT. Zach was able to receive a $15,000 scholarship to the school he committed to because of his score increase!! :-)
Yay Zach!

Show your strengths and target your weaknesses on the entrance exams by working directly with a test preparation specialist.

For some students, improving SAT® or ACT® performance provides a critical piece in their application picture, justifying a rigorous course of study. For other students, just a few sessions on strategy will suffice. All students need to strike a balance in their studies so as to not draw time away from critical coursework.  We can also use the test as a way to review foundational material and address test anxiety in a supportive environment.

Students who register for one-to-one test prep will:

  • Focus on content areas most relevant to score improvement
  • Develop a personalized test-taking plan to maximize accuracy
  • Recognize trick answers and triage hard-level questions
  • Study specialized techniques especially for the SAT® and ACT®

  • Study the best tactics to improve accuracy and increase speed
