Two Minute Teacher - Efficiently Preparing Sudents for Their Biggest Test


Welcome Minnetonka Students

Going in, I was getting 28-30 composite score and 27 on science.  Afterwards, I got a 35 composite and 35 on science and math!  Overall, after working with Mr. Surver I felt more comfortable and confident in my test-taking abilities.


“I wanted to give a shout out for my son Andrew who took your class in June… Just got the results back, he went from a 24 last September to a 32 this September...He did work really hard studying… 

Thanks, Sandy.”

Mr Surver-

"I took the ACT prep class that you taught in June (2018) and I just got my scores back from the July ACT. I wanted to thank you and Mrs. Hitchcock for helping me improve my score drastically.

My composite score increased from 27 to 33."


"Mr. Surver's PSAT prep class both motivated me to put in the work to improve my score and placed me in a positive environment with other serious, driven students. The teachers' experience and test strategies combined with these other factors helped me become a projected national merit scholar semifinalist, and I can't even put a price on that. I would recommend the class to any student who's serious about improving their score and looking for help."


"Hit Your Target" ACT Prep Class at MHS

Summer Course: Goal ACT 28-36

This is a high-speed course developed specifically for students who already have a basic understanding of the material on the ACT, but need extensive strategy advice to get that leg up for selective colleges or competitive scholarships.  In this score range, each ACT point gives students a significant advantage over others applicants.  This class will be focusing on test strategy and learning those extra few math, English, and science 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, and what to do on the day before and the day of the ACT.

We also offer a version for students who would like to take the class through online videos and a prep book at their own pace.
