Ivy Bound ACT – Sharpen Your Skills
For those who have studied well for the ACT but would like to be in the 99% percentile, Ivy Bound’s ACT Sharpen Your Skills is a high level class with an agenda of covering the hardest questions.
SYS is offered in a class format, with topics selected by the teacher in advance. Some students can enlist for just one month, others have the ability to enlist for multiple months. All students make use of the same materials – the Official ACT Prep Guide and Ivy Bound’s “ACT Six Pack” of recently released tests. Students can stay for the whole session and follow along with the help the tutor is giving to other students. The student also has the option to leave after getting answers and explanations that relate to her or his particular questions.
Students who wish to have full sessions with a tutor devoted exclusively to them may engage a tutor one-on one for six hours or more. With private tutoring the student’s agenda is paramount, and the tutors flex to the student’s schedule and learning needs.
Finally, students may form an ACT group or ‘Sharpen Your Skills’ group. That means a few students select a regular time that they wish to have a tutor available exclusively for them. These can be classmates, teammates, or extended family members. Our work is online, so student location is irrelevant. This also reduces the monthly cost, and facilitates students learning in group dynamic

ACT Materials, Licensing, and Enlistment.
Ivy Bound also trains students to prepare for the big test day. Ivy Bound allows its drop-in students to join for a practice test on a subsequent day. Students can purchase a practice test package if they want to practice multiple times before their real test date.
Our ACT tutors are excellent test takers themselves, who know the ACT test inside and out. An ACT tutor is able to help you learn both the material that is on the test and the proper strategies for learning how to answer correctly. Tutoring sessions are generally split between learning how to read the ACT test and reviewing the material that students have to learn to be competent on the test.
The best part of working with a tutor is the individual attention to your progress. In full length courses, Ivy Bound tutors masterfully work with students; they learn their strengths and weaknesses and use that information to make relevant tutoring sessions. ACT tutors at Ivy Bound focus on several strategies to help students, including time management, investigation, and sorting. When working with an Ivy Bound tutor in full-length courses, we expect our students to become confident and have the skills to get the score they desire.
