ACT Tutoring Fall 2020 & Spring 2021

For some students, one-on-one tutoring is the most effective way of learning information covered on the ACT, as well as in other classes taught at a high school level. If your student is needing a more personalized instruction session in a subject covered on the ACT exam or in their classes at school, our private tutoring sessions are the best option. Mr. Alex Beene's sessions will be scheduled around your student's academic needs and schedule, and he will work with your student at a pace that ensures they effectively comprehend everything covered.

 

*All tutoring sessions will be available via Zoom only for the fall 2020 semester.*

 

Registration Fee: $50 per 1-hour tutoring session

Monday – Friday: 3:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Saturday: 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
