Kellie was such a wonderful tutor to work with. Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable about the ACT, she also adapted perfectly to my learning style. She knew exactly what to do in order to help me and was very easy to work with. Throughout the entire time I was working with Kellie she was very supportive and kept my parents up to date as well.

The student learns how to correctly triage a passage and order questions from easiest to hardest in each passage and get the timing of the test under control.
Even the most reluctant reader and test anxious students see improvement using these strategies. ... More
