School Based Small Group Tutoring Gives All Students Affordable Access to Exceptional ACT Test Preparation

SIMON Test Prep stands out from other school based ACT Test Prep programs by bringing students personalized, small group instruction that is customizable and adaptable to the needs of each student.

While other programs teach a pre-packaged curriculum in a large group classroom setting, SIMON Test Prep provides small group instruction that is tailor-made for every group and adapts to the needs of each student.

School Based Small Group Instructional Model

Students attend SIMON Test Prep sessions twice per week – once on a weekday for their small group session and once each weekend for either a Skills Seminar or to take a real, proctored ACT Practice Exam.

Weekday Small Group Sessions:

  • Students meet for 2 hours and 15 minutes one day per week for customized, differentiated small group instruction in each section of the ACT.
  • Students are divided into groups of 5-8, based on their diagnostic and benchmark test results. Groups change weekly to adapt to the most recent testing data.
  • Within their small groups students learn ACT test taking skills and strategies and receive targeted instruction (based on their evolving skill level) for the ACT English, Reading, Math, and Science Reasoning tests.
  • All sessions are taught by expert instructors who are specialists in their content area.

Weekend Skills Seminars and ACT Practice Exams:

  • Each weekend students either complete an ACT Skills Seminar or take a full length, real, proctored ACT Practice Exam
  • Skills Seminars are taught by SIMON Test Prep content area specialists and include topics such as ACT Grammar, ACT Math, the ACT Writing Test, and Test Day Preparation
  • Each time a student takes an ACT Practice Exam, at the next small group session that student receives a score report with a detailed data analysis of the test results. This data is also used to determine a student’s small group placement for upcoming sessions.
