Welcome Minnetonka Students
This summer, we will be offering two in-class options for ACT prep through TwoMinuteTeacher. They vary based on the level of the student, so students will not find themselves lost or bored during class. The classes cover the Math, Science, English, and Reading portions of the ACT. Writing will not be covered, as it is an optional add-on to the ACT. These courses are both offered M-Th for two weeks starting on June 11. Each class includes 16 hours of in-class instruction with David Surver and Krista Hitchcock, both with Masters degrees, both veteran teachers of Minnetonka, and both experienced ACT tutors who make over $100 per hour tutoring. The courses also include an extra 30 minutes of time after each class to ask individual questions. If the course looks like the right fit, but the timing doesn't fit your schedule, an online option is available for $250. This option includes a book and a watch mailed to you, practice materials and tests used in class, and videos from each day of class so they can get all the same information at a distance. This video class is still open for enrollments through November 1, and the videos will remain up through Christmas
In addition to the excellent instruction received in class, both classes include an excellent ACT prep book with over 700 pages, three full practice tests, practice problems, and tips and tricks for the ACT, as well as a unique pin number to give them access to hundreds of online practice problems. Students will also receive a wristwatch to help them keep time on the test.
This year is the first time the ACT has been offered in July. This makes this class perfectly positioned to prevent students from losing their edge while over the summer, and gives them time to study and get as much out of this class as possible. When this class ends, they will have about three weeks to study on their own and refresh the material before the July 14th ACT. The timing of this ACT course is perfect for sophomores to get ahead and get a jump on their first ACT, as well as for juniors to take their final, strongest ACT and not have to worry about that portion of their college applications for the fall of their busy senior year.

"HIt Your Target" ACT Prep Class
Goal ACT 28-36 (top 10% nationally)
This is a high-speed course developed specifically for students who already have a good understanding of the material on the ACT, but need some tips to get that leg up for selective colleges or competitive scholarships. In this range, each point gives students a massive advantage over others applying for the same things. Since these students already have much of the base knowledge required for the ACT, this class will be focusing on how to best use that knowledge and teaching those extra few skills that can move them from a good ACT score to a great one. Some items that will be covered include: diagnostic tests, testing strategies, how to properly study on your own, confidence building, timed exercises, how to do specific types of problems on the ACT, recorded videos in case the student misses class, practice problems done in class, take-home practice, calculator programs and how to use them, and what to do on the day before and the day of the ACT.

"Reach Your Goals" ACT Prep Class
Goal ACT 22+ (top 50% nationally)
This is a unique course developed for students to focus on the basics of the ACT. The skills we focus on are the ones that will be found on the majority of the questions of the test. We will focus less on the topics that might appear on one question and more on the topics that are consistently covered on multiple questions of the ACT. This way, students can quickly and solidly learn what they need to know to get a great score on the ACT, and build the confidence to put it all out there on the test. A score of 22+ opens doors at all four-year institutions in the MNSCU system and assists athletes hoping to compete at the D1 or D2 level. Some items that will be covered include: diagnostic tests, testing strategies, how to properly study on your own, confidence building, timed exercises, which topics are on the ACT, recorded videos in case the student misses class, practice problems completed in class, take-home practice, calculator programs and how to use them, and what to do on the day before and the day of the ACT.
