Released by the makers of the ACT exam, as the basis for your test preparation. Most companies base their curriculum on test problems their own employees have written, and not on real ACT problems.
Your tutor analyzes your practice test scores in order to build a preparation plan that attacks your weaknesses, rather than working through a textbook in a linear fashion.
Organize the textbook by concepts to master, not by test-taking strategies. Rather than "teaching to the test," we help raise your score in an educationally enriching way and strengthen your intellectual foundation.
Tutor-student-parent communication via our website. Each tutor pledges to offer feedback visible to parent and student after every tutoring session on each student's personal page. This feedback will remain visible throughout your time working with us.
When you first start working with an Arbor Learning tutor, you will take a diagnostic ACT test: an ACT test that has been administered in the past by the ACT organization as an official test. Our team will break down your test results for you in a report that will be visible on your online Student Page. These test results will serve as the backbone of your tutor's first few lessons with you.
At your first tutoring session, you will receive the Arbor Learning ACT Preparation manual, along with three official ACT tests. The manual is designed to allow you and your tutor to focus on the skills with which you are having the most trouble, bypassing the sections whose skills you already know well. When you and your tutor have covered all the areas for improvement revealed by your diagnostic test, it will be time for another practice test.
After each and every tutoring session, your tutor will leave feedback on your Student Page, giving student and parents a big-picture view of your improvement throughout your time with Arbor Learning. You will be able to view exactly what steps are being taken to improve your score from your Student Page on our website. Your practice test breakdowns, tutoring session summaries, and a timeline for your preparation for the official test will all be accessible from your Page.
