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 and have all earned scores of 35 or above 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.
