Since 1997 we have traveled all over the world to deliver engaging, creative classes that give students powerful tools to be successful on the ACT. After nearly two decades of experience, we have perfected not only our effective and successful course material but also our unique delivery. We have incredible teachers who are young, fun, creative, and most importantly, intelligent. While our teachers have an amazing ability to explain a concept in different ways to accommodate different learning styles, they also have the ability to make the students laugh, and thus keep them interested and invested. All ACT courses include a 3-point score increase guarantee and one-on-one time with one of our awesome instructors.
