Raise your ACT score with the most comprehensive, scientific and accountable method of preparing for high-stakes standardized tests. With the help of professional University of Tennessee instructors, learn how to complete test problems based on question frequency, difficulty, substantive knowledge, curriculum and alternative test-taking strategies. Students will also learn how to maximize their score in the allotted time. Begin the course by taking an official off-record ACT test (don’t forget to bring two “#2” pencils). Receive feedback on specific areas and let our instructors successfully guide you through the exam based on your data. At the end of the program, students take another official off-record ACT exam. Once you receive your post-test data, our instructors will meet one-on-one to provide a final study plan in preparation to the real exam. A calculator is not necessary, but if a student chooses to use one, it must be a calculator permitted by ACT. Check here to see if your calculator is approved: http://www.actstudent.org/faq/calculator.html.

 

Quotes from parent:

This course was one of the best investments in my son’s future that I have ever made.  Of course, being a parent, I could see the benefit before the class ever began.  But the true measure of its success came as affirmation from my son who, after somewhat unwillingly giving up his Saturday mornings, told me how much he appreciated my insistence that he attend.  We are now in scholarship range and I could not be more pleased.  Highly recommended!”  Mom 

 

I wholeheartedly recommend the ACT Prep class.  Both of my sons attended it and did well on the actual test.  Their confidence and success resulted directly from completing the Prep Class.” Dad
