Our “Why”.

Standardized Test Preparation is often limited to large, impersonal group camps or expensive one-on-one tutoring, but the Cultivate ACT Preparation Experience blends the community of collaborative learning with the rigor of six hours of individualized one-on-one instruction.

Students will start by taking a proctored ACT test to determine their strengths and weaknesses. Our team of tutors will analyze their mistakes to help tailor the student’s individualized instruction

Our tutors have cultivated a list of essential lessons and strategies that all students taking the ACT must know. The course curriculum will be taught by two highly qualified tutors and will be limited to a small group.

After our tutors have analyzed the tests, we will create an individualized curriculum to ensure each student can reach their potential on test day. There are four tutors to choose from, each contributing an eclectic group of knowledge. Students can choose either one tutor to work with or they can work with a mix of tutors for one-hour sessions.

After growing through both a group session and personalized instruction, students will take a second proctored practice test. Like the first one, it will be scored and analyzed.

After taking feedback from students and analyzing the second test, we will create a customized review to continue the group’s instruction.

Throughout the three week experience, our Certified College Admissions counselor will discuss pertinent information regarding standardized testing and the college admissions process. Students will also be provided mindfulness and meditation strategies by our certified yoga and meditation instructor.
