About Us

“We review the most highly tested areas on the ACT. As we observe students, we are then able to pinpoint their gaps in knowledge and provide the targeted practice they need for mastery.  Once students become familiar with the types of questions on the test, they start to see the patterns that underpin the entire exam.”                                                                                                                                                        –Alisa & Mary
