Leo is an outstanding ACT tutor. Our child was struggling with the Math and Science sections of the ACT. After going nowhere with her first tutor, we connected with Leo. He was able to keep our child engaged and interested. He also quickly and effectively identified and targeted her areas of weakness. After a few sessions with Leo, she had a huge improvement in her Math and Science scores, from the mid 20's to 35 for Math and 33 for Science in her recent ACT! Most importantly, our child enjoys and actually looks forward to her tutoring sessions with Leo.

The ACT Test is not a typical high school test that most students are used to it. It is stressful, time constrained, and designed to be confusing. Luckily, this is a test that can be beaten given the proper guidance. TutoringBoston's ACT tutoring program has one mission: to prepare students for the ACT.  
The most important part to understand is that the scores for all multiple choice sections are based only on the number of questions answered correctly. Since, on average, there is 1 minute or less of time allotted per multiple choice question, it is important to find the correct answer using the quickest method.
The good news is that unlike a standard K-12 academic test, there is no need for students to explain how they arrive at the correct answer - they can use any strategies they choose. Unfortunately, typical problem solving approaches taught in school are not the best for the ACT. For this reason, TutoringBoston teaches specific tips, tricks, and techniques designed especially for the ACT .
