What does our ACT program look like?

The total number of sessions per student will vary based on their individual abilities. We welcome all new ACT students to take a free diagnostic practice test with us prior to tutoring in order to gauge their strengths and weaknesses. Based on those results we will recommend a plan for your student. Most students will have completed 8-10 verbal (1 hour) sessions and 8-10 math (1 hour) sessions prior to their first official ACT. However, the best way to know what set up would be best for your specific student, is to call us…any information you can give us will help in our determining what type of program would be a best fit.
