hours a week
All of our students improve on the test. Average improvement is between 3 to 5.5 points — in some cases even more — and our small classes are catered to your strengths and weaknesses.
test a week
To solidify concepts and practice in a proper test-taking environment, we offer a test every week in our office.
Our focus is on the students. We teach toward their individual learning styles so that each student gets the most out of the class.
Not your average ACT class.
No cram zone
Unlike most prep classes, we don't believe in cramming as many students as we can into a room. We limit classes to five students, carefully matching each according to level and expertise.
Topics covered include reading comprehension, data analysis, all of the required grammar areas — i.e. parallelism, pronoun-antecedents, and comparison problems — in addition to a complete review of mathematical concepts you'll need to know for the test.
We'll cover elimination strategies, and, most importantly for the ACT, time management, so that your student is ready to conquer all five sections come test day.
