Derby ACT Prep tutored all three of our children through their ACT journey. My wife and I believe it has been the 2nd best investment, after the 529 accounts, for their post-secondary education. The Return On Investment (ROI) has been worth every penny we spent for the help. The oldest increased his score by 3 or 4 points after discovering Jason's service late in the process (senior year). The middle child had higher scores and focused one last time after graduating high school and increased his score by 2 more points to get an extra $5,000 scholarship money for his college attendance. Finally, our youngest is done taking the ACT before her senior year as she improved her initial score by 13 points (from her freshman year score) to qualify for over $15,000 per year in scholarship. Additionally, we saw improved academic success across all areas of high school due to the improved explanation and time spent with Jason. We cannot say enough good things or recommend Derby ACT Prep...

Jason was wonderful! My daughter truly enjoyed working with him. Her confidence and her scores both improved dramatically from her sessions with Jason. Jason helped put together a plan for her to Approach each section. Her overall ACT score improved by 8 points. I would highly recommend Jason four ACT prep!

Jason is the best! My daughter worked with Jason for about two months during her junior year to increase her ACT score from good to great. Jason's expertise, guidance, and positive attitude were just what she needed. Jason planned weekly sessions focused on my daughter's needs and assigned palatable homework between sessions to hone her skills. She learned both content and test strategy. Despite being a busy teen, she was motivated to keep up with her sessions and assignments from Jason. His energy and enthusiasm is impressive. We were very pleased with the process and communication throughout. She took the ACT with confidence and met her goal. Thank you, Jason!

ACT Prep from an ACT Certified Educator

Improve your ACT score and get into your dream college! Jason Derby was one of the first six people in the country to achieve ACT Certification in all six areas: Basics, English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing. He offers a comprehensive ACT prep program covering all subjects of the test. 

Working with Jason gives your student access to an ACT expect with three key qualities: 

1. Content Knowledge - By working with Derby ACT Prep, you won't have to find a qualified tutor to teach the Math and Science section only to find another one for English and Reading. Choosing a tutor with expertise in all areas of the ACT means your child doesn't have to get used to a new teacher, teaching style, curriculum, or anything else. Instead, your son or daughter can simply focus on getting ready for the ACT.

2. ACT-specific strategies and test knowledge - Content knowledge is a prerequisite for quality tutoring. However, it is much more efficient when a tutor has a deep understanding of HOW content will be tested on the ACT. Through his five years of ACT tutoring experience and ACT Certified Educator training, Jason's credentials and testimonials show his extensive ACT-specific knowledge.

3. Teaching ability - The tutor's knowledge doesn't help unless the student actually learns the information. As a current high school teacher, Jason understands the science of teaching and learning. He is a big believer in retrieval practice, a concept that stresses it doesn't matter how many times something is put into a student's head; it matters how many times the student has to pull the information out. This idea informs his curriculum choices, homework assignments, and lines of questioning during tutoring sessions.
