What Students Say
Students report that Yellow Parachute’s test prep curriculum helps prepare them beyond the test. In addition to boosting scores, students say they have become better overall test takers, strategic thinkers, and have improved time management and confidence in learning.
Many Test Prep Coach/Student pairs capitalize on the personal relationship they’ve developed to work through the college essay writing process together.
When to Take the Test
The ACT is administered in Minnesota during the school year in Sept, Oct, Dec, Feb, April, June and July.
You pick two dates: one for your first try, and again to try to beat your score.
YP is experienced at assisting students who have 504s and IEPs make the best test-environment decisions for their unique needs. We not only spend time on test content but also focus on how a student will use the specific accommodations they’ve been given.
For example, students coming into ACT prep who have been diagnosed with dyslexia are especially nervous about the reading section on the test. Time after time, however, we see reading become one of their strongest sections after spending time with an experienced Yellow Parachute ACT Test Prep Coach.
Students who experience test anxiety are particularly anxious about test day; our Test Prep Coaches take them through specific steps to help prepare.
