ACT: The Cambridge Approach

Instructor, Margaret Rowland, BA, MA

Join reading specialist Margaret Rowland to learn the tricks of mastering the ACT test to the best of your ability! Students are provided with plenty of test-taking practice to help them with the anxiety that is often experienced during these tests. We begin the class with a simulated four-hour Pre-Test that will give our instructor an overview of which skills each student is strong in, and which skills each student needs to practice so that we can tailor the class to meet the needs of each student.

Students are provided with 2 textbooks for the duration of the class. One book is geared towards test mechanics, concepts, and strategies, while the other serves as an excellent resource for college and career readiness. The class concludes with a four-hour Post-Test that will provide the students with their scores in each test area, as well as their final composite score. Please keep in mind that we cannot review 12 years of school in only 12 hours, but the students that participate in class and practice outside of class will see a definite improvement in their score! The course covers all the ACT multiple-choice test areas: English, Reading, Science and Math, plus writing and text anxiety. Pre and Post-Tests are included. Students have the option to purchase their books for an additional $70. Also recommended: Writing for ACT.
