Increase ACT Score with Special ACT Prep Class PDF Print E-mail

Lee Gonet will again teach her annual intensive ACT prep class this summer June 5-9. Lee's unique method of having students take multiple practice tests combined with test review has increased students’ scores dramatically on the ACT. Prior students have attended with a wide range of abilities, working on their scores to avoid taking college remedial classes in Math or English, to obtain admission to the school of their choice, or to qualify for scholarships.

100% of Lee's students have told her that they wished they had started prepping for the ACT in their freshman or sophomore years so that when necessary grammar, punctuation, reading, math, and science skills were taught throughout their high school years, they would recognize the necessity of memorizing and applying such material. Also, once students have taken the class, they can continue to apply the skills learned on mini-test-prep sessions at home before each new ACT they might take.

Angela May will teach the math skills portion of the sessions. 

Class will meet at GracePointe Church, 1565 Ray Thorington Road.

The total cost for the class is $150, which includes 30 hours of instruction, book, practice tests, handouts, water, snacks, and pizza on the last day. For students who repeat the class, the cost is only $75. Class size is limited, available on a first-come first-served basis, and full payment is required to reserve a space (write check to Lee Gonet and mail to the address below).

In addition, please send the following information:

- parent name, email, cell or home phone (identify which), and snail-mail address
- student name, email, and cell phone if available
- upcoming grade level (9, 10, 11, 12, or year of graduation) and school currently attending
- all higher math grades (e.g. Alg I 92, Geo 87, etc) and whether the student feels math confident
- food allergies (I provide snacks and water)
- all previous ACT scores with dates, including English, Math, Reading, and Science scores.

**** If you have not yet taken the ACT, set aside a four-hour time period and take the 2016-2017 ACT practice test (available free at schools or online). It is important that you start the class with an accurate base score, so please time yourself as if you were at a test center with only one 15 minute break. Please, send me the score when you are finished. http://www.act.org/content/dam/act/unsecured/documents/Preparing-for-the-ACT.pdf.

The schedule will be as follows:

- Monday June 5*: 7:45-8:00 Meet & Greet / 8:00-12:00 Testing / Lunch Break** / 1:00-4:00 Class Work***
- Tuesday June 6*: 8:00-12:30 Review and Teaching Session
- Wednesday June 7*: 8:00-12:00 Testing / Lunch Break** / 1:00-4:00 Class Work***
- Thursday June 8*: 8:00-12:30 Review and Teaching Session
- Friday June 9*: 8:00-12:00 Testing / Pizza Break / 1:00-4:00 College Workshop (parents welcome)

*Students MUST eat a protein breakfast before class. Sugar carbs are not good choices for clear thinking!
**Students may leave for lunch or bring lunch (refrigerator, ice, and microwave are available).
***Class work consists of students reworking all errors and unfinished problems without help to determine what is already known or understood, but missed simply due to limited time or test anxiety. Students may leave as soon as they have recorded their second score for each test.

The ACT is on June 10 (deadline to register May 5, or pay a late fee of $27.50 by May 19), and students must register individually online at: www.act.org. The cost is $42.50 for basic test, $58.50 for test plus writing (the prep class does not cover writing practice), and $20.00 for the Test Information Release Service (copies of the questions and your answers, and I strongly recommend my students pay for the opportunity to review their work). I also advise students sign up as soon as possible so they will be given their choice of test sites. In Montgomery, Faulkner University and AUM are good test locations (tables are provided instead of small desks).
