We meet with students for 8, 9, or 10 sessions, each lasting 90 minutes. Homework includes a mix of full-length practice tests and 90-minute assignments.
The program covers test-taking skills and ACT content, including question interpretation, guessing strategy, time management, algebra concepts, geometric reasoning, reading comprehension, grammar, and essay writing.
We use our own proprietary materials that are updated annually to reflect the current content and best strategies on the test.
SAT/ACT Hybrid Program:
The content tested on the SAT and ACT is similar. Many students take both tests, and our SAT/ACT hybrid program is the most efficient and effective way to comprehensively prepare for both exams.
After students complete our comprehensive SAT tutoring program, they can continue with our three or four session ACT hybrid preparation. The ACT hybrid course takes the content students mastered in their SAT preparation and teaches them how to apply it to the different format of the ACT. The ACT hybrid tutoring starts with teaching students the correct approach to the science section, for which there is no equivalent on the SAT; gets them comfortable with the English section, which tests the same grammar rules as the SAT in a different format; and helps students adjust to the accelerated timing of the ACT.
