ACT Prep Class St$40 in Cornelius-last chance to register

Posted on Updated on

ACT Proctored Practice Test and Prep Class

$40 in Cornelius for two-part prep class spanning two Saturdays:

June 30: Full proctored test at 9am-12:30pm.

July 7: Targeted feedback session at 10am-12:30pm.

Taking a full practice test and reviewing the answers is the absolute best strategy for improving college entrance standardized test scores—but we all know it’s hard to stay focused for a full test by yourself.

There are programs that charge $100s to help you raise your score, knowing that a few extra points on these tests can yield $1000s in scholarship money, yet these guys are charging only $40 for a full practice test and the most relevant feedback for your student!

In this class—spanning two Saturday mornings—class participants will take full, proctored ACT practice tests, which the instructors will grade and analyze to find the most common pitfalls and question-types missed. On the next Saturday, the instructors will host a special test-prep workshop, using specific examples of often-missed questions to give targeted feedback, explanations, and testing strategies so that the students will feel confident about getting the correct answers next time. This class will be helpful for both the experienced student and newcomers to the ACT.

Where:  20314 Queensdale Drive, Cornelius NC

When:  9am-12:30pm, Saturday, June 30th (Proctored test and test taking tips)

10am-12:30pm, Saturday, July 7th (Test results, specific feedback, and test prep strategies)

What to Bring : Graphing Calculator, 2 Pencils

In order to cover time and printing costs, the cost is $40 per student with a $55 cap per family.

(Option: $30 for just the proctored test and emailed score)

Snacks will be provided.
