We offer the following test-prep options that have given thousands of students success on test day:
    - We evaluate all information that you supply and determine which course and level of course is best for each student.

Small Group Options:


  •  20-hour course taught on THREE levels of instruction - beginning, intermediate, and scholarship
  •  Placement of students based on previous scores and other criteria
  •  Review, Instruction, Testing and Strategies for all subjects tested
  •  Coaches are assigned according to their expertise with certain levels of students.
  •  Includes mock test



  •  20-hour course
  •  ULTIMATE students push for even higher scores with additional strategies, new material, and in-class testing with immediate analysis.

    Check with us to see if ULTIMATE or PRIVATE coaching or a COMBINATION is best for raising your scores after successfully completing a Faye Nichols Comprehensive course.

    Most ULT students saw 1-4 pt. gains . Sample score increases from 2017-18 ULTIMATE students: 31-33.  31-32,  28-29,  29-32, 29-30, 30-33, 31-33,  26-28,  25-29,  28-31, 24-27, 27-29,  28-32.

    Would an increase of 1-4 points complete your ACT goal?

    Students who have NOT taken a Faye Nichols Comprehensive course need 27 or higher to be considered for this course.


  •  20-hour course
  •  LAUNCH: Designed & Introduced this spring to reinforce essential English, Math, Reading, & Science skills tested on the ACT. Perfect for 10th grade students just beginning formal ACT prep.  LAUNCH will promote greater success in the classroom, in Comprehensive classes, and on the ACT test.

Other Options:


  •  ACT test strategies and instruction by Master ACT coaches in ALL subjects tested
  •  Practice and application of concepts and strategies
  •  Includes mock test


  •  Four 1-hour sessions of  ENGLISH
  •  Four 1 hour sessions of  MATH
  •  Strengthening foundational skills tested on the ACT and SAT - Beneficial for students scoring below 30 in English or math.
  •  May be taken before or after COMPREHENSIVE class.



Most students do NOT need private coaching and thrive in our leveled classes.  PRIVATE COACHING is available to students who have schedule conflicts. Some students, HOWEVER, are not scoring at the level of their potential and need SPECIALIZED TUTORING. My assessment identifies specific skills that are missing and the best approaches for teaching those skills. Then I recommend the tutor and corrective steps for that student’s success.
