Private Tutoring for the ACT® Test: Industry-Leading ACT Score Increases

A Letter From Our CEO

Dear Parent -

With so many options from which to choose, selecting the best test prep support for your child can be challenging. My goal, therefore, is to help you understand what sets StudyPoint's ACT tutoring apart from other ACT prep options you may be considering.

What Matters Most: Our Results
It's easy for companies to claim that they have the best ACT tutors or the best curriculum, but in the end the only way to sort through all those claims is to focus on one thing: their average ACT score increase. The best thing about this industry is that there is an objective and highly standardized measuring stick: you have a pre-program score and a post-program score. The difference between those two is your ACT score increase. It's a straightforward concept, yet far too many companies are unwilling or unable to disclose this critical number.

At StudyPoint we've always worked hard to collect this data from our clients, and we're transparent about our results: on the ACT our students increase an average of 3.9 points, and on the SAT our students increase an average of 124 points. And many of our students' results are literally double those averages.

A Close Second: Our Guarantee
One of the core values that guides our day to day work is to Live and Work by the Golden Rule, and for us that translates to standing behind our product. If you purchase an iPhone and it doesn't work, you take it back to the store and they make it right. To the people here at StudyPoint, delivering on what we promise is just common sense.

Where many companies offer little or no guarantee, we're proud to have always backed our ACT tutoring with an industry-leading one: if your child completes our Standard 30-Hour In-Home Tutoring Program and doesn't improve by at least 4 points from his or her baseline score, we'll provide you with an additional 18 hours of ACT tutoring for a subsequent exam for free.

And if you choose to work with one of our most experienced online ACT tutors, we'll raise that guarantee to 5 points. These instructors have over 2,500 hours of tutoring experience with us, and are some of the most experienced test prep tutors in the industry.

I welcome you to learn more about our ACT tutoring. We're very good at what we do, and we would welcome the opportunity to work with your family.

An Approach that Addresses Your Child’s Specific Needs

When a program is designed to address the individual needs of each student, it is called Differentiated Instruction. We’re a leader in Differentiated Instruction and have structured our ACT tutoring programs to create a personalized learning path for each student. This means your child’s ACT program will focus exclusively on those areas where he or she needs the most help. We accomplish this in three ways:

One-to-One Tutoring

Private tutoring, by definition, is Differentiated Instruction. A private ACT tutor can focus on specific strengths and weaknesses and move through content areas and strategies at a pace that is appropriate for your child. And since one-to-one tutoring provides a safe environment for your child to ask questions and admit when he or she is confused, the instructor is well positioned to identify and address problem areas.

Assessment Technologies

Before meeting with the tutor, your child will take an initial Practice ACT. This exam is run through our diagnostic software to provide a detailed report of your child’s performance in different content areas and question types. The tutor then uses these results to focus the program on your child's specific needs. As the program continues, your child will take additional ACT practice tests to ensure that he or she is progressing as expected.

Curriculum Mapping & Personalized Homework

Homework is an essential component of test preparation - the more you practice the better your scores. As a result, we developed Curriculum Mapping technologies that use your child's ACT Practice Test data to create a Personalized Homework Plan with practice problems tailored to his or her current mastery levels. As your child improves, the system presents increasingly difficult material to ensure that he or she is appropriately challenged throughout the program.

How We Achieve
Our Industry-Leading Results

Proprietary Curriculum

We're experts in the ACT, and have revised and updated our proprietary curriculum for the recent changes.

Program Oversight

Your Program Manager will monitor your child's progress and, if necessary, work with you and your ACT tutor to make adjustments.

Exceptional ACT Tutors

We're extremely selective for both intellect and teaching ability, and unlike many companies we provide comprehensive training.

Matching Process

We'll work with you to find the right tutor match: someone who can explain difficult concepts and motivate your child.

Practice with Real ACT Tests

Practice and familiarity are essential to earning a stronger score, so we provide a minimum of three full-length Practice ACT tests from the Official ACT Guide Book.

Score Increase Guarantee

The vast majority of our students meet their goal the first time, but if you don't we'll provide 18 hours of ACT tutoring for the next exam for free.

You (and your family) are busy

To be effective, an educational program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the tutoring to you through two convenient options:

In home ACT tutoring

Our flagship program, which we launched in the late 1990's, our in-home ACT tutoring option provides you with the unparalleled convenience and personalized attention of a private ACT tutor who will work with your child right at your kitchen table. All lessons are one-to-one, and your instructor will ensure that each session is highly focused on your child’s unique needs.

Online ACT Tutoring

Instead of meeting at the kitchen table your child and the tutor meet in a custom online learning environment. This innovative tool enables them to talk through strategies and complete practice problems, just as they would on a workbook at your kitchen table. Online ACT tutoring replicates the in-person tutoring dynamic, and it’s remarkably effective.
