Quick start, quick climb. Riley makes a 6 point ACT increase.
Riley came to Revolution Prep in the fall of her senior year of high school. Riley’s dad is active duty military and had recently been transferred. As a result of the cross- country move, Riley realized late in the college application process that she did not have the test scores she needed to be a competitive applicant at the schools she was targeting. She had just one more opportunity to take the ACT before sending in her college applications.
Because Revolution Prep employs a full time staff of professionals, Riley was able to get started working with her tutor, Michelle, after a very quick registration process. They scheduled ten sessions together over the three weeks leading up to the ACT. Riley’s initial score was a 19. Michelle identified Riley’s biggest opportunities for score improvement and focused their limited time together on these areas. During their one-on-one sessions, they also worked on test taking strategies and time management skills. Three weeks later, Riley earned a 25 on the official ACT and was able to apply to her dream colleges with confidence.
“Michelle, my tutor, met with me in online sessions. I could not have been set up with a better tutor. She was enthusiastic, kind and fun to work with, but also knowledgeable, resourceful and helpful in every subject. Sometimes we studied for hours at a time. She was flexible and patient. Michelle helped me prepare for the test with my head up, full of confidence.” Quote from Riley, high school senior.
