CantonTargetTesting, an ACT preparation nonprofit founded by high school students, is offering free ACT preparation to students. This class is designed to raise students’ scores in the least amount of time by focusing on weaknesses, working on the application of knowledge to the ACT, and learning only the essential content. TargetTesting further increases preparation efficiency by individualizing lessons.
The instructors are experienced on the subject of standardized testing. Jordan Lu, Jeffrey Lu, and Jason Ren have all earned a scored of 35 on the ACT. They have also spent time substituting for and observing lessons of previous TargetTesting sessions. The experiences they have gained working with students in this capacity have prepared them to teach the class.
Registration through the Canton Public Library website is required to join the class and will be open to those student who have completed their freshman year of high school. This class is a 10-week session which will take place on Sunday afternoons from 3:00-5:15PM. The first session will be on February 1 and the last will be April 5. Having a library card is a requirement for registration. Please be aware that attendance is mandatory to get the most out of this class. Registration begins on January 12. Any questions regarding class content may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
