Amazing ACT/SAT Prep: Northern VA ACT/SAT Tutor – Richmond VA ACT/SAT Tutor – Fredericksburg VA ACT/SAT Tutor – Charlottesville VA ACT/SAT Tutor

Why does our program work so well? 

We often get asked this question. It’s because we focus on the individual student and not a classroom of students. The largest ACT/SAT score increases are seen when ACT/SAT prep is customized for the individual student. This is also why a baseline test is so effective. Our ACT/SAT practice test score reports are used as a student diagnostic. 

The ACT/SAT tutor will hone in on the specific needs for the individual. The diagnostic report reveals trends such as pacing and themes among certain question types. On the SAT reading section, the student may have the most trouble with command of evidence. For the ACT math section, it might be quadratic equations that need the most attention. It is important to retest the student periodically, in order to reassess strengths and weaknesses. The ACT/SAT prep program should revolve around the student, as he or she grows throughout the prep program. When we see scores suddenly spike in the main area of focus, it means attention must be switched back to the new lowest scoring section.    

Here’s one of our ACT prep students that went up 3 ACT composite points, after only 6 sessions of one-to-one prep. English went up 2 points, math shot up 4 points, reading increased by 3 points, and science jumped up 3 points.

Get Ahead with Summer Test Prep

Students entering the summer, as soon to be seniors, will have the chance to take the ACT or SAT one last time. There is a September ACT and an October SAT that students can take. Students taking these tests will receive their scores back and can still apply for early decision or early action. This is usually due around November 1st. Our average score increase for our 12 session package is 4 ACT composite points and 230 total SAT points. 

Those entering the fall as sophomores and juniors; it is highly recommended to take a full-length practice ACT and SAT over the summer. Vint Hill Educational Services is offering free mock practice tests over the summer and into the fall. We can also send out the free practice tests to take at home. We will match up the scores to see which test the student is scoring higher on. All colleges and universities accept both the ACT and SAT. We can determine which test is best after a student takes one of each. We will then help the student prep for a spring test, by matching the individual up with the perfect tutor. 

We've found that completing full-length practice tests can help students:

  • Increase their composite and overall scores on the actual tests
  • Gain exposure to the tests and real-world test experience 
  • Find out which test is in line with their strengths (ACT or SAT)
