Girl tutoring another girlThe college admissions landscape is more competitive than ever! One more extracurricular activity or a slightly higher standardized test score could raise you above another candidate. Or, your spot could go to someone else who has reached these achievements.

Colleges accept the ACT as an equivalent of the SAT. If you are strong in math and science, you’ve likely chosen to take the ACT to showcase those skills. If you need to improve your ACT score, our tutors are here to help!

Tutoring for ACT Success

Ivy Bound has been preparing students for ACT success since 2001. Our tutors are available in-person and online for private or semi-private tutoring sessions. For semi-private tutoring, the parents split the cost evenly.

The ACT is a very coachable exam. We work with each student to identify weaknesses and work to strengthen math, science, grammar, and reading skills. We offer the maximum number of real practice tests for students to measure their progress.

Ivy Bound tutors have helped Darien students on many levels achieve ACT success.

Our ACT Tutoring Program Benefits

Our ACT tutors have all scored in the top 1% on the exam, so you can rest assured you’re working with the right test prep firm! Darien students can expect an average score improvement of 13.4 section points.

Even an 8 section point increase makes a significant difference in your chances of college admission and merit-scholarship opportunities. Unlike need-based scholarships, merit scholarships are based on academic excellence. Ivy Bound students earn $80,000 in four-year awards on average!

We are proud to offer our students a 12 section-point guarantee on the ACT or families receive money back!* Darien students who want to increase their score to improve chances of college admission can view our in-person class schedule for Connecticut ACT test prep today.
