We believe that private, one-on-one tutoring is the most effective way to achieve the highest possible scores on the ACT and SAT. Our specialized sessions, available both in-person at our offices and online via Zoom, are meticulously designed to cater to the individual learning styles and needs of each student. With two dedicated 90-minute sessions per week—one focusing on math and the other on English—we provide a personalized approach that targets key areas for improvement, ensuring maximum efficiency and success in test preparation. This individualized attention is proven to enhance learning outcomes, making it the best choice for students aiming for top-tier scores.

Our Approach

Establish a starting score

Getting a baseline ACT/SAT score is key because it shows where you're starting and what you need to focus on to improve. We offer free in-person diagnostic testing every Sunday at our office.

Sign up for a diagnostic test

Design a custom study plan

Based on your baseline score and your target score, we will work with you to create a custom study plan that includes a mix of tutoring sessions, homework and practice tests.

Practice, practice, practice

Regularly meet with your tutor to work through Pivot's proprietary lesson plans. Tackle a variety of problems, learn to navigate tricky questions, and refine your strategies, all while building the confidence needed to excel on test day.
