Jason does an excellent job with preparing students for the ACT. My daughter had taken the ACT two times, and was determined to score higher on it. We reached out to Jason and she reached her goal!! He is very confident in the content and has a great approach to working with students. My daughter's confidence grew tremendously!

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!

I cannot recommend Jason enough!! My daughter felt so much more confident heading into the ACT after working with Jason. Even with Covid-19 restrictions, Jason was flexible with Zoom and her schedule to work with her. From substantive help to time-management skills, Jason is so knowledgeable, friendly and brilliant! He followed up with her right after the test to break down how it went, too. She made her goal and had such confidence! 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.
