ACT Tutors in Chicago

ACT tutoring is one of the most important services we provide in the Chicago area. All of our tutors start by listening to the student describe their experience with the ACT, target test date, perceived strengths and weaknesses, and target ACT score. By also reviewing previous official ACT scores or recent practice tests, they collaborate with the student to design a customized ACT study plan.
