For almost 15 years now, our individual and small group tutoring sessions have proven extremely successful in the test preparation arena. While each student's performance is dependent on a number of factors including the amount of time dedicated outside the class, students in the LEARNING SHACK Program have regularly increased between 100-500 points on SAT tests and 5-12 points on the ACT! Let us help you get these results! 

We have several packages designed to help students prepare for standardized testing:

Hourly Instruction

Hourly Tutoring: For students looking for an alternative to the LEARNING SHACK SAT and ACT course packages, we also offer hourly rates of instruction for the SAT and ACT. Our hourly rates vary from $75-$110/hour depending on the subject matter and location of the tutoring. This option is frequently selected by students who simply need a couple of hours of additional tutoring in a particular area of the SAT or ACT. We are happy to do multiple hour blocks if we have enough notice (ask about discounts on multiple hour sessions!), and students should specify the area of need so that instructors can supply the relevant materials. Please contact our Orange County, CA office for more details at 949-646-6689.
