As an alternative to the SAT, ACT is the second most common college admissions exam in the U.S. A good score on the ACT can mean scholarships for college-bound students as well as admission into top schools of their choice. Thatís why itís important for students to adequately prepare for this test and score as high as they possibly can! Although there are many ways that students traditionally prepare for the ACT including independent study and group classes, one-on-one tutoring provides the best preparation because of its guided, individualized approach.

We make students aware of the specific math skills that are tested, especially the large amount of geometry and algebra, help them acquire and practice these skills, and teach them to leverage their prior knowledge and test-taking strategies to attack those questions with confidence and focus. Our ACT tutors also help students with the grammar section of the test. Our tutors know what types of questions frequently appear, and they help students understand the theory behind the grammar, mechanics, and rhetorical questions on the test.
