"Hey Rob,

I just wanted to reach out to you and say THANK YOU for all of your help preparing me to do well on my standardized tests. Before I came to you I was struggling getting my test scores into the upper ranges, but after I completed your video series, got feedback on my essays, and took more tests I got scores in the 99% for both the SAT and ACT.

Ultimately, after the long and stressful college admissions process, I narrowed my two options for college down to Harvard and Yale, and I decided to commit to Yale University. Although I have always been strong in school and extracurriculars, I really feel like your assistance put me over the edge and played a role in my admission into some of the world’s best colleges. I have recommended you to many of my friends and teachers at school because I truly believe you are an amazing tutor with so much to offer.

Thanks again so much and I wish you the best of luck in your future!"

- Andrew R., Reason Prep Student

What You'll Learn

This course covers the ACT Reading test in exhaustive depth - the best ways to tackle the passages and questions, how to manage your time effectively, and the best strategies for beating the test and increasing your score. I also work through five REAL ACT Reading tests in this course so you can see exactly how these strategies are applied to real ACT questions. In this course you will learn

  • The ins and outs of the ACT Reading test - passage types, question types, and how it's scored.
  • How to manage your time effectively so that you read just what you need to get the questions right. Never run out of time again!
  • The core strategy for getting through four passages and 40 questions in 35 minutes efficiently and effectively.
  • Strategies and tactics for solving line reference, keyword, inference, general & main idea, and other question types.
  • How to identify and avoid time wasters, questions that will drain your time and damage your overall score.
  • The trap answers and little tricks the ACT tries to play on you - learn how to identify and avoid them!
  • The big mistake students make when working through ACT Reading questions that forces them to guess on too many questions - and how to avoid it.
  • How to tackle the new Dual Passage Reading questions. They may seem intimidating at first, but they're not bad if you know how to approach them!
  • How to work through 5 real ACT Reading tests (20 passages and 200 questions) - watch me attack each and every question in real time.
  • and so much more!

If a particular topic is troublesome for you, he will explain it until you understand it perfectly.
