Our ACT & SAT Test Prep Process

  1. Get baseline test scores. You can take a mock test with us or use your scores from previously administered official tests. We recommend taking both an ACT and SAT so we can help you decide which test is best for you. Schedule your mock test today while space is still available.
  2. Decide which package is best for you. This depends on a number of factors, such as when you will take the test, what your baseline scores are, how much time you can allocate to studying, and more. We also offer tutoring by the hour if you’re not sure which package is best for you.
  3. Match you with the best tutor. Based on your strengths and weaknesses, as well your learning profile, we match you with the tutor who will best meet your needs.
  4. Tutoring begins. Sessions are typically once per week but scheduling is flexible, as is session length. You’ll have homework in between each session, including practice sections, full-length mock tests, and drills focused on target concepts. You and your tutor will review the homework in depth as you learn the techniques and strategies that will improve your scores.
  5. Take your test! Once you get your scores back, let us know what happened. We guarantee our work. The chart below shows our guarantees and rates. If your score doesn’t increase by the guaranteed amount, we will provide up to 14 hours of complimentary tutoring before the next test date.

 Money-back Guarantee Explained:

Here’s how it works. We can only offer the 100% money-back guarantee for our 25 and 35 hour programs, since we know the time it takes to reliably make significant improvements.
The guaranteed improvements are:
  • 25 hours: ACT +3, SAT +100
  • 35 hours: ACT +5, SAT +160
We don’t like fine print, but need to have a few rules. They are:

1. The Money Back Guarantee is only available to students who have not yet taken or studied for the SAT or ACT.

2. You have to do all of your homework and and complete all hours.

3. You have to take a certain number of mock tests (not including the baseline test), as follows:

25 hours: 4 mocks

35 hours: 6 mocks

4. You have to take the test twice while working with us and still not go up guaranteed amount, based on the superscore.

5. If you are 1 point away from your guarantee on the ACT, or 20 points or less on the SAT, then we will give 50% money back. Otherwise, it is 100% money back.

6. You can opt for free tutoring until guarantee is reached, instead of money back.

Customer Testimonials

We are indebted to Mindspire Tutoring for the college acceptance and scholarships that my child received. Mindspire raised my son’s ACT scores by 7 points! His ACT score of 31 provided him with in-state tuition scholarships from many top out-of-state schools and got him into top in-state schools; thereby putting him in the driver’s seat to choose where he’d like to attend. I highly recommend Mindspire Tutoring.

Satisfied Parent

Our son recently took their SAT prep class. It was a LOT of work outside the class so they need to do it at a time when they are not crazy busy but even so, our son increased his score by almost 200 points after taking this class. He now at least has a chance of going to the school he wants with his improved score!

Our Test Preparation Packages

If your student has a baseline score of at least 1370 (SAT) or 30 (ACT), ask about our High Scorer’s Package.

If your student is a sophomore and you want to absolutely maximize your student’s potential, please read about our Sophomore Package.

Packages typically start with the student taking a mock SAT and a mock ACT to determine which of the two tests they’re better suited for. We craft score reports to illustrate their performance on each test. Once they’ve taken both tests, we send a letter detailing which test they focus on and why.
