Typical test preparation programs either provide tutoring in core subjects over an extended period of time or offer a short workshop on specific skills. The first is resource intensive and so, not available to students in under resourced high schools, while the second rarely focuses on the skills needed by these students. Team 36 is different. Our courses and workshops are carefully tailored to the needs of our students, providing an effective and scalable alternative.
Our introductory workshop focuses on understanding what is on the test and mastering basic test-taking strategies. We use low cost study material, making it easy to implement in any environment.
Our advanced course brings students together in small groups to implement personalized study plans. Drawing from the latest research, students are taught the most effective and efficient ways to learn.
We have also developed an online course, freely available to all, that provides a self-contained introduction to how to study for the ACT. We tell students what they need to know to develop a complete strategy for increasing their score. Our course covers what is on the test, how to diagnose strengths and weaknesses, the most effective strategies for studying, and the best way to use this information to create a study plan.
This makes us unique in the field of test preparation. We focus on the skills necessary to raise scores with minimal resources and maximum results.
We are committed to offering these courses for free because we believe that the ACT should not be a barrier to college for any student in Mississippi.
