Prepare for a SAT or ACT Test at LifeManagement Center
SAT & ACT Tutoring
LifeManagement Center offers SAT and ACT prep tutoring year-round. Tutoring is one-on-one and includes diagnostic practice tests and focuses on each student’s individual needs. One-on-one tutoring allows students to fully engage in learning by receiving undivided attention. Thus, each student will not have to compete with others in a group setting and his/her voice will be heard. Tutoring sessions are catered to the student’s individual learning style and will pinpoint the subject area(s) where he/she needs the most help. For example, if a student routinely excels in Language Arts but struggles with Math, the tutor will work with the student to improve his/her Math competencies and ultimately help him/her score higher on this section.
Our tutors and learning specialists will tailor a personalized plan that builds skills with Critical Reading, Math, and/or Writing as well as test-taking strategies. Develop the skills and confidence you need to score higher on test day!
