NOT JUST ANOTHER TEST

The ACT (American College Test) is just as recognized by US colleges as the SAT. Choosing to take the ACT could be a wise choice, especially if you are more comfortable with the ACT’s format and questions. However, the ACT brings about its own set of unique challenges.

In our experience working with hundreds of students of varying ability levels, we find three key issues that students face.

The first is the computer-based test format. Unlike most examinations in school that are paper-based, the ACT is administered on a computer. That means no scribbling, annotating, and highlighting on question papers – any notes or scratchwork that you do need to be on separate pieces of paper.

The second is content. Too often, students take the ACT with neither the requisite knowledge nor the appropriate strategy. The questions in the ACT not only assess advanced verbal and mathematical concepts that colleges expect of first-year undergraduate students, but also force students to answer these questions in a relatively short amount of time.

Finally, there is the purpose. Students often have hazy ideas about their target scores and may not appreciate the vital benchmarking role that the ACT serves in university admissions. Consequently, many do not start their preparation in time, or struggle to stay motivated once they have.

We created our ACT Preparation curriculum to help you approach this unconventional and unfamiliar assessment with experience, confidence, and resolve.

The IvyPrep Approach

Our curriculum, continuously refined by subject-matter experts, is not static. It is a never-ending project: as the ACT changes, we change with it; as new technologies emerge, we upgrade our pedagogy. A decade of experience, however, has highlighted a core of common principles that cut across all our ACT preparation courses.

THINK LIKE A COLLEGE STUDENT

We focus not only on building the content knowledge required for the ACT, but also the skills that the ACT aims to assess in the test. In our lessons, our instructors will help you improve on both – from building your grammar and mathematical knowledge, to learning how to read complex prose and scientific diagrams effectively. 

LEARNING BY DOING

There is no substitute for the real thing. All our instruction is grounded in real ACT examples that reveal the nuances of each question type. In classes, instructors lead first, showing students how an expert would approach the test; thereafter, students build up their mental muscle-memory by working on real ACT problems themselves – with the instructor there to correct, encourage, and clarify. 

PERSONALIZED ATTENTION

Our private tutoring program gives students the opportunity to work one-on-one with ACT subject matter experts. Through targeted conceptual classes, practice problems and feedback sessions, our ACT instructors will help you gain the confidence you need to do well in this test.

OUR TRACK RECORD

Over the last decade, we have propelled more than a thousand students to tangible improvements in their college-level verbal and quantitative reasoning abilities – and, as a consequence, helped increase their ACT scores.
