Private ACT Prep can be the perfect option for many families that have diverse needs. Private tutoring has both scheduling and content flexibility, so it’s a popular choice for students with busy schedules or students that need a more customized prep program. We recommend Private ACT Prep for students who have lopsided scores on their first diagnostic and will need to focus more on one section of the test. Private ACT Prep is also the recommended route for students that score in the lower ranges and need more academic material review and for students that have initial ACT scores in the highest ranges and will benefit the most from pinpointing their specific missed question areas.
We know that some students learn best in a private tutoring environment rather than in a group class and we can cover all the material from our ACT Success Course in a private setting. Private ACT Prep can also be a good option for students that have prepped for the SAT and need to do a few sessions to learn the differences in structure and format of the ACT, but don’t need as much academic content review.

How do I schedule private sessions?
Call our email a local office director to schedule Private ACT sessions. The office director can provide scheduling options, recommendations on the appropriate package, advice on the best instructor fit for your child, and possible practice test times. Most families will schedule one or two sessions each week to lead up to the selected ACT test date, so it’s best to have a test date in mind in order to set up a Private ACT Prep program.
How does GLC choose the instructor for my child’s private session(s)?
We take three things into account when selecting an instructor for the sessions. First, we know it’s crucial to find an instructor with the best teaching style for a particular student’s learning style. We know that some students work better with a more structured teacher, while others work better with a more laid-back teaching style. Second, we take into account the specific score goals for a student. If a student needs to focus only on the Reading section, for example, we would pair them with a strong verbal instructor to best meet the student’s needs. Third, we consider scheduling constraints for both the student and instructor. You can review our instructor bios here.
Why should I choose the 6 hour Test Prep Package?
The six-hour test prep package is a good choice for students that only want to focus on one section of the test or want a few sessions to learn how the ACT is different than the SAT. We find that 6 hours is helpful for students to pinpoint their weaknesses and make improvements in one section of the test, but is usually not sufficient for a first-time test taker to prep completely for the entire ACT.
Why should I choose the 10 hour Test Prep Package?
The ten-hour test prep package is best for students that want to cover the comprehensive instructional material from the ACT Success Course but prefer to learn in a one-on-one setting. We can spend equal time on each section or adjust the sessions based on individual student needs. Students receive all materials and 3 diagnostic tests.
Why should I choose the 14 hour Test Prep Package?
The fourteen-hour package is best for students that want the most comprehensive prep for the ACT. This works well for students who want to go in-depth on particular topics or question types and receive the most amount of practice. This is also a good option for students that may need more academic instruction on unfamiliar concepts, like trigonometry, grammar, or science reasoning. Sessions in addition to the 14 hours can be added at $80/hr.
What is the Director Consultation?
Director Consultations are an opportunity for parents and/or students to meet with the office director for 30 minutes. Families can discuss their prep plan, receive feedback about a diagnostic test, or learn tips on how to make the most of their experience at GLC. Please contact an office director to schedule the optional consultation.
