The ACT Turbo Workshop provides college-bound students with a comprehensive overview of the most effective approaches to the ACT. This is an ideal option for students with little time to prepare prior to the test. The Turbo Workshops are each scheduled shortly before an ACT. Students work with real previous ACT tests to ensure they are practicing the skills they will need to have the day of the test.
In a typical class, we start by asking students which sections they would most like to cover out of English, Math, Reading, and Science. Based on the unique needs of the students in the class, we spend more or less time on certain sections. For each test section, we start with strategies and content review, followed by instructor-modeling of problem solving. Students then do targeted mini-practice to become familiar with the test questions and comfortable with timing. Students need only bring a calculator and a pencil – all the materials are provided.
Each of our ACT courses can be taken separately or as part of a sequence—they all use different materials. The 4 hour ACT Turbo Workshop can be a helpful introduction to the ACT prior to the ACT Intro or ACT Advanced, or it can serve as a good review for students who have already done other group classes or tutoring.
Based on feedback from schools and community organizations with whom we have arranged classes, students have had an average 2 point improvement on their actual ACT test scores after taking this workshop. This is over twice the improvement students typically have due to ACT test prep, even those who do tutoring for many, many more hours. (http://m.us.wsj.com/articles/SB124278685697537839?mobile=y). You won’t find a better “bang for your test prep buck” than our ACT Turbo. The cost of the ACT Turbo is approximately $100, depending on your particular residency status for a recreation center.
