For the Hit Your Target ACT Test Prep Classes:
Students get 16 hours of instruction plus the teacher for the day will stay for 30 minutes after each class to answer individual questions, making it 20 potential hours.
Students will receive a free simple wristwatch suitable for keeping track of time on their practice tests and on the real ACT.
Unlike most courses we will work on skills that will help them in college, not just test taking strategy
Students will get a copy of what we feel is the very best ACT prep book available with over 700 pages including tips and 3 full practice tests.

If students miss a day or want extra instructional review we will have videos that we record each class-day available for home study.
We will do a diagnostic test at the beginning to show students some potential areas for personal improvement.
We will give students instruction on calculator tricks that can really help.
We will give students detailed plans on next steps in studying more for the ACT.
We will give students a sheet of directions on exactly what to do the day before and day of the ACT to get themselves in the best possible state for taking the test.
We will email the parents before, during, and after the course to educate them about the ACT and keep them informed about how they can best help their kids be prepared.
If you choose private tutoring:
I have many valuable resources I share with my tutees that help build their skills between sessions. Sessions will be held at a time that works for both David Surver, as the tutor, and the customer as tutee. You can coordinate with me through firstname.lastname@example.org. Sessions usually take place at the 7Hi location of Caribou Coffee. If you give me enough advance warning we can often book the private room and I will pay for that as long as their rate remains reasonable. Session will expire 12 months from purchase.
