Our Approach to ACT Test Prep

Male Teenage Student Studying In Classroom With Teacher
  • Diagnostic Test - The student completes a full-length diagnostic test. (Helpful but not always necessary.)
  • Tutor Selection - Educational Connections' test prep tutoring specialist hand-selects a tutor who will best suit the student's academic needs and personality.
  • Assessment - Educational Connections and your tutor determine the student's strengths, weaknesses, and areas for greatest improvement using a computerized analysis of the diagnostic test results.
  • Program Creation - A custom-designed program with goals is created to enable the tutor to target the areas in greatest need of improvement.
  • Session Structure - Instruction and homework target three key areas: content review, test-taking strategies, and simulated test practice.
  • Streamlined Feedback - Parents receive progress reports after each tutoring session and have access to our online portal, which provides practice test scores and feedback, homework assignments, and scheduling information.

Superior ACT Test Prep

Through highly individualized virtual tutoring using research-based strategies for building test taking skills, Educational Connections offers a superior test prep experience. The caliber of our tutors and the proven approach we use help students prepare not just better but faster.

Instead of a generic, one-size-fits-all program, Educational Connections' tutors quickly assess strengths and weaknesses. Since no time is wasted on what students already know, each session targets areas where improvements will have the greatest impact on test scores. Plus, our tutors know how to use test prep strategies that play to the strengths of each student's learning style for higher engagement in the process and better results.
