What if I miss a class?
We do not offer make-up classes. However, our instructors will meet with you during the next scheduled class to quickly review what you missed. We will always recommend that you complete any missed practice at home.
What is a normal score increase?
Students who attend all classes, participate as instructed by teacher can expect a 2-4 composite increase. This is an average and some students may see more or less than these statistics.
Should I take the ACT without any prep?
We have found that having a baseline score without any prep is helpful for evaluating a student’s natural strengths and weaknesses and developing an individualized prep plan earlier in the course. However, many students have taken the prep course without taking the ACT first and have reached their goal score on the first try.
Do you offer private tutoring?
We are currently redesigning our tutoring program. We hope to role out our new program in the spring of 2019.
