Acing the ACT Is Simpler With Foundation Learning

Button for previous video slide
Button for next video slide

I wanted to take my learning further, and Foundation Learning helped me do just that. Their test prep materials are great, and everyone is really friendly. 10/10!

The weekly assignments, practice tests, and test prep materials Foundation Learning provides helped me understand and work through the ACT’s main ideas. From memorizing formulas to developing my reading comprehension skills, we covered all the questions I’d see on test day. Talking to someone who genuinely cared about my success was a bonus.

Booking a consultation marked the start of some great ACT prep. My tutor met with me and my dad to talk about my progress and help me keep on top of my responsibilities. That gentle “push” helped me raise my score much higher than I could have achieved alone.

My first practice test at home showed me that there were definitely some things I needed to work on. My friends had all scored in the high 20s or low 30s, and it was shocking to me that I didn’t have a similar first score. Getting a higher ACT score was my goal from then on. Eric was friendly and took the time to work through practice questions with me. Foundation Learning provided the support I needed to improve my score by 10 points! 

Working through every ACT section together with my tutor helped me build my confidence question by question. We worked through ACT English the most since it was my weakest section, and she made sure we never spent too long working through subject areas I had a good handle on. I feel like there was never any time wasted, and it led to me scoring 35 on the ACT! 

My tutor was patient and overall a great fit. Every interaction I had with Foundation Learning was pleasant. They’re really knowledgeable, and my parents and I were ecstatic with my progress over the course of my prep plan. I have a part-time job on top of band practice, and I was worried it would impact my tutoring schedule. My tutor worked around my other commitments and made a plan that didn’t feel too much for me. 

Claudia’s tutoring helped me succeed! From our very first call, I found it very easy to talk to her about my concerns about my lower initial score and was impressed at how she already had an idea for a game plan to help me. My parents loved her, too, and it was great to leave ACT prep sessions feeling confident instead of anxious and stressed! 

I never thought I’d be able to achieve the highest ACT score possible. I’m honored that I could work with Foundation Learning to make what I thought was a pipe dream a reality. Andy’s support not only boosted my skills but my confidence to do the best I could. Thank you, Foundation Learning!

Foundation Learning is great for students looking for really comprehensive prep that doesn’t feel overwhelming. I had a good base, but working with such a kind and compassionate tutor made our sessions feel comfortable and like I could share what was on my mind. 

Tom helped me work through ACT Math and gave me tools to help me remember formulas. He was incredibly patient with me and was available to schedule a meeting or send back an email whenever I was feeling stuck on my assignments. Seeing myself grow and learn so much in the last five months has been surreal. I really can’t thank the Foundation Learning team and Tom enough for the support they’ve given me! 

I wanted to give a huge thumbs-up to Foundation Learning! Everyone I interacted with genuinely cared about my success and progress. With less than two months left before my final ACT date, I was scrambling to find an awesome tutor who could help give me a boost. Foundation learning made it happen—I can’t wait to go to UChicago!

When I first tried a practice ACT test at home, it hit me how shaky my core skills were. Studying on my own or with my friends didn't really boost my confidence. That's when we stumbled upon Foundation Learning's 40-hour ACT package. Those weekly sessions were a game-changer. They helped me tackle those tricky questions I couldn't quite wrap my head around, making sure I got them right the next time they popped up.
