A Word From Seth on ACT Prep

What to Expect

  • Introductions and collaborations among students and coaches
  • Direct ACT section coaching with workshop-style practice
  • In-depth test prep covers the English, Reading, Math and Science sections
  • Personalized attention for areas of improvement and enrichment
  • Inclusion of the importance of healthy daily habits
  • At home – dedicated practice of strategies and skills
  • Communication of concerns between coaches, students and parents

Things to Know

ACT Prep IS for students to:

  • Prepare to retake the ACT Exam
  • Learn how to approach the ACT Exam
  • Actively engage in discussions and ask clarifying questions
  • Practice authentic exam questions and times
  • Collaborate with other like-minded students
  • Reduce testing fear and anxiety
  • Develop self-esteem and confidence

    ACT Prep IS NOT for students to:

    • LEARN exam subject content – it is taught in class
    • Learn exam formats – this is for improving scores
    • Expect coaches to lecture – sessions are collaborative workshop style
    Virtual Boot Camp sessions are available upon demand to support the other test dates of June, July, September, October and February. These sessions are provided on-demand. You will work at your own pace and choose 12 – months of access or lifetime access, which is perfect if you have siblings testing in the future. The ACT prep coaches teach the same strategies as the in-person sessions.


    What are typical ACT Test Prep results from past students?

    Some students have improved their scores by phenomenal points. However, typically, student scores improve by a very respectable 3–5 points.

    Can I get a refund if I am unhappy with my student scores?

    No. If there is a concern about score improvement, the coaches will follow up and collaborate with the student for further review.

    How can I support my student’s success through these ACT Test Prep sessions?

    Collaborate with your student to create a dedicated work-time schedule, materials, and space for working on ACT practice assignments. Creating a personal reward system that encourages your student may be helpful.

    Who are these ACT Prep sessions for?

    These sessions are for students who have taken the ACT Exam and are dedicated to improving their scores. First-time ACT testers are welcome but are asked to take an online practice test and bring the results to the class. There is no grade limitation.

    How much time between ACT Prep sessions should my student expect to dedicate to practice?

    Expect to dedicate at least one hour of practice per subject area between ACT Prep Sessions and extra practice time on areas that require more preparation.

    What should my student bring to each ACT Prep session?

    Bring the ACT Practice booklet, assignments, and every tool needed for taking the ACT Exam: pen, pencil (mechanical), and calculator (not the cell phone). Bring snacks and water—be respectful of possible food allergies.

    How should my student dress for each ACT Prep session?

    Your student should dress comfortably and in layers. We cannot control the room temperature. Be sensitive to respectful messages on clothing.

    What should my student do if he/she misses an ACT Prep session?

    Your student should contact the ACT Prep session coach. The student should also log on to the password-protected videos and assignments at www.myehsj.com.
