SAT-ACT hybrid program

Make the most of your prep.

Take both the SAT and ACT to develop the strongest testing profile possible.

Showcase What You Know

Colleges accept both the SAT and the ACT, and a strong score can only help your application.


Are You in the 20 Percent?

Though most students perform nearly identically on both tests, 20% of students see a dramatic difference in their SAT and ACT scores.


You’ve Already Done the Work

Much of the content is transferrable from the SAT to the ACT and vice versa. Use just a few additional sessions and practice tests to see if the other test is a dramatically better fit.



Take advantage of your own hard work. With just a few sessions, you could be ready for a new test.

The content tested on the SAT and ACT is almost identical. Most students take both tests, the SAT followed by the ACT, and our SAT/ACT hybrid program is the most efficient and effective way to comprehensively prepare for both exams.

Once students complete our comprehensive SAT tutoring program, we begin a 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 on the ACT.

The primary goals of ACT hybrid tutoring are:

  • to learn how to approach the ACT Science section, for which there is no equivalent on the SAT
  • to get comfortable with the new format of the ACT English section
  • to adjust to the accelerated timing of the ACT

Parents love us.

Let us help determine which test is the best fit for you!

All four-year colleges accept both the SAT and ACT, and the vast majority of colleges do not have a preference as to which test students should take. Therefore, you should take the test on which you’re likely to perform better.

While it’s often true that students who enjoy puzzles and logic games prefer the SAT and literal thinkers prefer the ACT, it can be hard to predict which test will be a better fit. Let us help you get your highest score on the test that highlights your abilities.

Willow Nelson

SAT and ACT Tutor

“Throughout my academic career as both an experienced tutor and a successful student, I have seen time and time again the exceptional benefits of 1-on-1 learning.

Patrick Keenan

SAT and ACT Tutor

“I have found that being a successful tutor requires intimate knowledge of the material, such that it can be presented in many different ways. What makes intuitive sense to one student might not be the best explanation for another student.”

Kaitlyn Matta

SAT and ACT Tutor

“Perhaps one of the most important lessons I have discovered as both a student and a tutor is that learning should provide a foundation for students’ own self-representations and interpretations of the world around them.”

We help people engage with material, get excited about ideas, and build the tools necessary to thrive in a competitive school system.
