About Our
ACT Prep

Lessons are broken into one-hour sessions. We start by focusing on topics that allow your child to make the quickest improvements in their score, while working on any gaps in the basic skills necessary to build upon their current knowledge. For each hour, we focus on one test section for a focused learning approach. As your child continues test prep, lessons become more focused on specific topics within the testing subjects where we see the biggest need for improvement or largest opportunity for an improvement in score. In addition to testing subject matter, we provide a range of test taking strategies that suit your child’s skills and needs.
