We offer private ACT Prep Programs that will help your child reach their highest ACT score.  

Our ACT Programs are rigorous and comprehensive.  We provide students with the necessary structure, accountability, and thorough ACT Curriculum to help them reach their highest potential score.   We believe that the best program is one that allows students to build their skills over a longer period of time.   Students have the chance to make every possible kind of mistake and learn from all of them, take successive practice ACT tests to master the test timing and strategy, and become familiar with the pattern and diverseness of ACT questions, all while not feeling like they are 'cramming.'  With our ACT Programs, we help students focus on both their challenge areas and help them build their skills for EVERY ACT section.

Students who enroll in our ACT programs have an average increase of +6 points! 

Will my student make a +6 point score improvement?   
Each student's score increase is dependent on his or her diagnostic score, the amount of ACT homework completed, and the effort put in to do "The Work."  Our programs require students to make a significant investment of their time and energy, and it pays off with score improvements that reflect their effort.  

Students should think of our ACT programs as equivalent to taking an 8-12 week AP level class: they will have 3 hours of private lessons per week, 3-4 hours of ACT homework per week, and a 4 hour timed practice ACT Test each week. 

My child does not have enough time to do the ACT program. What other options do you offer?
We offer private ACT Tutoring that can be tailored to your child's schedule. 

My child only needs ACT tutoring for one or two specific ACT subjects. Do you offer subject specific ACT tutoring? 
We offer subject specific ACT Tutoring to help students with the sections they want to make score improvements in.  We offer ACT English, ACT Math, ACT Reading, ACT Science, and ACT Writing tutoring sessions. Check out our ACT Tutoring Page


Private ACT Prep Programs are customized to each student's strength and weaknesses.

At Pivot Tutors, we offer programs that run 8 to 12 weeks and allow students sufficient time to learn, practice, and master the test. The goals of our programs are for students to reach their highest test score by the end of our program, and for them to finish with that particular test.

During our 8, 10 and 12 week ACT programs, students will:

  • Cover all ACT concepts one-on-one with their instructor

  • Master the test strategy for each section

  • Receive our specially developed ACT material that will help students practice and reinforce each week's private lesson concepts

  • Take a weekly timed full ACT test to practice the skills learned in lessons under testing conditions

  • Receive all ACT materials, accountability, and a structured plan tailored specifically for your child's strengths and weaknesses. 

Student progress is measured through practice test scores and homework completion. Our instructors can also provide program modifications to focus on different test sections and address each student's main challenge areas as we progress through the curriculum.

Our students are able to reach their goal scores when they follow the Pivot Tutors curriculum and complete all assignments.  Students are accountable to their instructors for completion of assignments and practice tests, and we make sure that they make weekly progress.
