Achieve an ACT score you can be proud of.

210 minutes can make or break a college application. Test scores account for at least 25% of your child’s college acceptance decision. Every 11th grader has gone through at least 12 years of school, yet a single event can overshadow tireless hours of study. It can negate countless weekends devoted to volunteering. It can make exhausting hours of sports practice irrelevant.

Don’t let the ACT stand in the way of success. Make the ACT work for you.

Get started 100% risk-free.

We promise your Revolution tutor will be the best private tutor you’ll ever work with, or you won’t pay a cent. We’re so confident in the quality of our full-time tutors, that if you decide to cancel for any reason within your first 30 days, it’s free.

How to prepare for the ACT

Start with a plan of action

Before choosing an ACT test prep program, you need to have a plan. A practice test will help to determine how much preparation is needed to achieve your goal score. Not sure what score you should be aiming for? An Academic Advisor can help you set the right goals to make sure your child is on track for success. Call an advisor today or download a free ACT practice exam.

Assess core academic skills

Preparing for the ACT is more than just practice tests and identifying question types. A Professional Tutor will work to identify and address any knowledge gaps in academic skills while working on ACT practice. Ensuring your child has a strong grasp of the fundamental concepts will not only increase their ACT score, but increase their grades and confidence in school. ACT scores can count for 25 to 35% of a college admissions decision, but GPA accounts for up to 50%.

Get comfortable with the ACT

The ACT is a three and a half hour test. This is the longest test most students have taken at this point in their life, and learning how to stay focused throughout the test is a unique challenge. Students will also need to be comfortable with the way the ACT asks questions. There are a lot of questions to answer in a short amount of time, and students who can quickly identify core concepts and know how to proceed accordingly will have an advantage.
