Prepare for the ACT! Schedule is here!

Posted: August 24, 2017


Our 2017/2018 ACT Prep Classes are starting! We've designed our class so you learn the information to prepare for the ACT but also are able to use the advanced reading and grammar skills to write better papers and analyze complex text...skills vital for success in college.  Students who have taken our program have improved their scores from 4-8 points.

 

Aspire ACT Prep Schedule

Good sentence structure and punctuation is key to getting A's  on papers in high school and college.  Too many students do excellent work, but are docked on the mechanics of writing.  We've designed our class to not only help you improve your writing mechanics, but if you haven't taken the ACT yet, our course will help improve your ACT English and Reading scores.

 

This course is taught by a college English instructor.  She has taught at Missisippi State, worked in college writing labs helping students, and she will be teaching Composition I & II at DMACC this fall.  Get the grades you deserve!

Customer Comments

"I could write a book about the problems we had regarding our son and his learning disability. He was finally diagnosed at UW Madison. We sent him to a special reading camp in Northern Wisconsin for two summers which used the Orton Gillingham method only to have his regular teachers ignore everything he learned so he would back slide. I had a boss who trained pilots during the war who told me that when schools stopped teaching phonics you could see these kids coming out of the woodwork. But no one wants to listen. Yes, we can cut back on our education budgets and use that money to build more prisons because that is where a lot of our young people with disabilities will end up. God bless you for having a program to help these young people. Thank you."
