We insist on a diagnostic test
Some prep companies never offer a diagnostic test before tutoring or a class. The diagnostic helps us focus on the particular areas of the ACT you are struggling with. Furthermore, the initial score helps you see the progress you are making. There’s no better motivation than a higher ACT score!
We’ll reinforce the material
A student, above, studies at her home in West Point Grey.
At Your Score Booster, expect ACT lessons right after the diagnostic test. The lessons will teach you the ACT subject matter and also the tricks to help you identify the right answer.
We’ll focus on point gains
After the lessons, Your Score Booster will assess your progress through tests and our PointsBooster® report, which shows us the particular sections and even types of questions that will help you can gain the most points. We believe you shouldn’t have to pay for every test you take; rather, you should pay to review the test with Your Score Booster. So once you start tutoring, we’ll provide ACT tests for free, and you’ll take them at home, using a Your Score Booster timer to time each section. Occasionally, it’s a good idea to take a proctored ACT. It simulates the real conditions a bit better; in that case, you can pay a fee to take the test under timed conditions.
We’ll be your ACT coach
Don’t expect to hear from us only during your ACT lessons or ACT classes. If you need a push to get homework done, we’ll push you with texts and e-mails. We’ll help you arrange your schedule to fit in the homework.
You can register for the ACT examination here.
