The ACT is a college admissions test that most juniors and/or seniors take in high school. Many students will take the ACT during their junior year of high school and all colleges will accept both ACT and SAT test scores. The ACT tests English, math, reading, science and has an optional essay section. iAchieve Learning offers private, customized ACT tutoring for students and we come to you! Choose one of our three ACT Test Prep packages depending on how much prep time you need and where you are in the process.
“I would absolutely recommend the tutors at iAchieve Learning for ACT prep. The tutor that worked with my daughter was very knowledgable and helped her with test taking strategies and prepared her very well to take the ACT. We were very pleased with her results on the ACT!” – John

Our Approach to ACT Test Prep
1. Take a Free Practice Test
We highly recommend that any students just starting the test prep process first take a free practice ACT test to determine their baseline score. In the past, iAchieve Learning was offering the free practice tests at the Des Plaines Library. Since Covid hit, we are now mailing home to families a free practice ACT and/or SAT which also includes proctoring instructions and a stamped envelope to send it back to us. Once we receive it, we grade the practice tests with our extensive Online Test Prep Portal and then email students and parents the results within 1-2 days and offer a free phone consultation to go through the results. If you would like to take one of our free practice tests, please click the link below to contact us with your name and address!

3. Course Materials
With each package, students will receive a large ACT textbook with over 1500 practice problems, a smaller Essay Guidebook, and have access to our extensive Online Test Prep Portal.
