Get Prepped this Summer with ACT!

Instructor, Margaret Rowland

Join reading specialist Margaret Rowland to learn the trick of mastering the ACT test to the best of your ability! Students are provided with plenty test-taking practice to help them with the anxiety that is often experienced during these tests. We start the class with a simulated 4 hour Pre-Test that will give our instructor an overview of what skills each student is strong in and which skills they need to practice so 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 the included 4 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 the four multiple-choice test areas: English, Reading, Science and Math, plus writing and text anxiety. Pre and post-tests included. Students have the option to purchase their books for an additional $70.

 

This class will prepare you for the regional ACT test dates:  September 12, 2015

Writing for ACT and your Future!

Instructor, Margaret Rowland
The writing portion of your ACT test can be the deciding factor for college admissions and whether you are awarded that scholarship! Learn how to make your essay stand out above the rest! We will discuss the best strategies for the ACT writing portion that will relay what an asset a student like you will be to a college campus. We will also discuss how to write admission and scholarship letters. Students will leave the class with a finished letter that can be used when applying to the college of their choice.
