ACT Advantage (Intermediate)

(54 hours of class instruction including two Boot Camp Review Days, 6 Diagnostic SAT Exams)

Our ACT Advantage Classes focus on each section of the ACT separately. Over the course of ten class days and 54 hours of in-class instruction, our program will equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to perform well on test day. Our instructors will spend time on test mechanics & test-taking strategies including time saving techniques, how to read a reading passage vs. a science passage efficiently, and multiple-choice elimination strategies. Our classroom is serious but fun. In addition to traditional lectures, our instructors use games and activities to keep the students engaged while learning.

Our in-house curriculum also teaches techniques intended to help improve speed and accuracy. Regular homework assignments will help students internalize the skills and knowledge they have learned in the classroom while the Boot Camp Review days will help them build endurance and comfort with the full-length, 4-hour ACT Exam.

ACT Insight: Private Tutoring

Our ACT Insight: Private Tutoring option is an ongoing effort between you and your tutor. The one-on-one setting is well suited to students who are very busy and cannot squeeze a structured class or boot camp into their already busy schedules. It is also perfect for students who prefer personalized attention and detailed, tactical guidance tailored for their specific strengths and weaknesses as they relate to the subject matter.

The ACT Test

The ACT is a multiple-choice test that includes a writing component. The ACT includes an English section that tests standard English and rhetorical skills, a Mathematics section that tests high school level math skills, a Reading comprehension section, and a Science section that tests your analytical and problem solving skills in the natural sciences. The Writing section involves a 40-minute written essay that tests your entry-level college writing skills.

So, although colleges consider the ACT equivalent to the SAT, the tests themselves are not identical. So you must prepare for them differently. At Insight, our ACT Insight program will teach you what you need to know to excel on every section of the ACT with confidence.

As college admissions professionals, we understand the importance of your ACT score when thinking broadly about your college admissions journey. ACT Insight will equip you with just what you need so that you canaccomplish your ACT goals.We begin by focusing on the fundamentals—test-taking skills, practicing critical thinking and analysis skills, and learning from mistakes—in a dynamic group setting, as well as a one-on-one settings. Our instructors are well versed in their section of choice and love working with and teaching high school students. Each instructor has an undergraduate degree or higher in a relevant field and past teaching experience.
