ACT Tutoring

ACT tutoring can enable students to attend the American University of their dreams.

At Growth Wise, we ask parents about your teenager so that we can gauge which of our tutors would be the best personality fit. Students then work one-on-one with an experienced tutor who is uniquely focused on connecting with your child and finding the right learning techniques that resonate with them. All the while, we work at the student’s own ideal pace.

Growth Wise works online via Skype and also in person in Manhattan. No matter where you’re located, you can get the help you need.

We pay particular attention to what makes students and parents feel connected to their tutor, whether it’s recognizing a student’s emotional states during a lesson and how they need to be met that day -- or calling a parent during the week to make sure their hopes and anxieties around the test are heard and responded to.

From raising test scores to connecting with parents to making kids feel inspired to do their best, Growth Wise offers the very best in ACT tutoring.

What Our Clients Have Said...

  • “As the mother of two children who have worked with Jim for their SAT and ACT exams, I have observed how unique and effective his approach is. Jim not only teaches the children the academic skills they require, but he also empowers them to make their own choices and develop their confidence in their own way. Jim’s attention to the individual pesronality of the teen and his ability to connect with them on their level helped them a lot through these difficult years. I am thankful Jim was in their lives.” – Einat B

  • ‘“Jim has mentored and tutored my teenage granddaughters Siena and Antonia for their ACT exams. Since Jim has been tutoring them, their results have been nothing less than phenomenal. Siena has gone from a 21 to a 30 on her ACT exam so far; equally important, Jim has instilled in Siena a sense of pride in her accomplishment. When she started with Jim, Siena was an unenthused, mediocre student. I do not believe in coincidence, but over the past year she has transformed into an enthusiastic, high-achieving student whose grades have improved from a B to an A- at an extraordinarily competitive school. They are both motivated by his coaching. Every session is followed up with unique emails quoting educators and philosophers on the necessary steps of how to focus and think in a positive way.” – Steve G
