Are you overwhelmed when you think about the ACT? Are you worried about paying for college? Are you concerned about adding pressure to your student's already overloaded schedule?
I hear you. I know. I was there. When my son and I began studying for the ACT, we wanted RESULTS.  As his score went up, we became even more motivated to fully understand the test. It is that knowledge and strategy that I am excited to pass along to others.  
Using only real ACT tests, I teach students the structure and content of the test.  They will develop a personal strategy for each of the four sections.  In turn, they will become proficient in recognizing correct answer choices and avoiding wrong ones. Students will create a long term study plan that includes instruction, practice, correction, and assessment.  
Study groups are relational, laid back and encouraging.  Students gain confidence and determination when they begin to understand the blue print of the test. Many students improve their cumulative score 2 to 4 points after participating in a study group and following through on a study plan.  This 15 hour program consists of 8 hours of instruction and 7 hours of homework.
