Dear Parents,

Over the past 25 years, Academic Tutoring has provided outstanding ACT prep services to students in Park Ridge and the surrounding areas. Our success rate is amazing: 97% of our students increase their ACT score, most by an average 3 - 5 composite points. Many achieve even higher gains, and many of our students earn scholarships valued at over $40,000 per year! Our program, ACT Success, has won praise from school administrators, parents, and, best of all, from students.

ACT Success is effective because it motivates students to do their best and because it provides each student with the skills needed for success on the ACT and in life.

This flier provides information about both Small Group and Individual ACT Prep. Feel free to call our office with any questions about the ACT or the preparation process. We are happy to answer any and all questions, even if you do not utilize our services.
