ACT Preparation

Now considered the most popular college entrance exam in the country, the ACT tests students on material associated with the standard high school curriculum. Divided into four sections—English, math, reading, science—the ACT embodies two hours and fifty-five minutes of actual testing (the optional writing test requires an additional forty minutes). A standardized test that measures college readiness, the ACT is accepted by all US colleges and universities.

The ACT: Test Overview

  • English (75 questions, 45 minutes)
  • Math (60 questions, 60 minutes)
  • Reading (40 questions, 35 minutes)
  • Science (40 questions, 35 minutes)
  • Writing (1 prompt, 40 minutes)

Thank you very much for the tremendous help during the ACT course! I especially appreciated the one-on-one feedback we were able to receive in class as well as the convenience of being able to approach the teacher by email on days where we did not meet. I would gladly enroll in another class.

Our daughter is loving these classes! She says you all know her by name, she feels super supported, she says you all are so engaging and make the work so interesting, and she is doing so well! Thank you for everything. There is nothing in the world more valuable than teachers that inspire and motivate students and make them excited to learn!

I have some fantastic, and I mean FANTASTIC, news to share with you. You did amazing work with my daughter! I’ve never heard of anybody improving their score so much.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with Emma. She has been working with our son for just a little over a month. You can read below that his initial score was a 25 before any tutoring. He took a second practice test on Saturday and scored a 28 overall with two 30’s.
Thank you Emma! We are excited!

Jerry, your mothers direction and support from day one with subject test strategy, pairing my son with Caroline for ACT prep and essay editing, you coming out of retirement to share your wisdom, providing a few other amazing tutors for the little extra push, and suggesting we find an outside counselor that’s a fit were all individual acts that amounted to something big!!!!

Kyle is an amazing ACT tutor! He has the patience of a saint and my son’s score is every bit a reflection of him as it is of Nicholas. Lynn has been my greatest advisor these last 4 years and every word of advice she has given has been on the mark. So don’t go anywhere because I have two more kids coming down the line!

NB, Parent

We can’t thank you enough for recommending Max as a tutor for our son. Our son has so enjoyed working with him in preparation for the ACT and as of late, the PSAT. He is an outstanding tutor, both in his knowledge base and his interpersonal skills. He demonstrates an excellent balance of empathy for the student, encouragement toward the student, and exhortation to work hard.

SB, Parent

I had a fantastic experience during the ACT course. I was provided with lots of resources to practice, and I also had the support of my teachers throughout the entire process. Each student was given the personalized attention that he or she needed in a classroom environment. I can not thank you enough.

KP, Student

My son’s composite ACT score improved 5 points from his pre-ACT to his 2nd ACT test. Lynn Carnegie is fantastic and really listens to what her clients need. My son first took the ACT Blast, and Lynn helped match him with great tutors along the way to hone in on his areas of weakness without sacrificing areas of strength.
