I first started working with College Planning Partnerships in mid-March, just four weeks before my first time taking the ACT. After taking their SAT/ACT Diagnostic, I decided to focus on the ACT. I scheduled two sessions over the Internet—one with Sam for English, and one with Zac for Science, as these sections were my two lowest scores on the diagnostic. Both sessions were quick (90 minutes) and painless. Throughout my session with Sam, I received strategies about how to answer the questions, when to be suspicious of an answer choice. I’m glad to say that in that short time period, he helped me raise my English score from a 26 to a 31.

Throughout the 90-minute session with Zac, I also received strategies that helped me perform better. However, I was having a very difficult time finishing the passages on time. Zac noted this, and sent me several past exams as extra practice between our session and test day, and was supportive throughout. Between his efforts and my own, I was able to raise my Science score from a 25 on the diagnostic to a 32 on the actual test.

Because of Sam and Zac’s efforts, my two worst scores on the diagnostic became my two best scores on the actual test, and helped me receive my goal composite score. I could not be any happier with the thorough and efficient help I received, and would recommend it to any prospective ACT takers.

Thanks again for your help,
