Our new classes begin in February 2020
I came into ACT Prep Chicago seeking to get the support that I needed so that I can pass the ACT, and complete the education program with my university. As an adult learner, I thought I could do it alone, but I was completely wrong. I went into the test ill prepared and left out frustrated. I was determined not to end up with the same result. I learned how to approach this test and I treated my tutoring sessions as a class. I completed the homework, took practice exams from previous ACT tests, and worked on other supplementary materials provided by Mr. Glenn and ACT Prep Chicago. After a lot of hard work, and mastery of skills such as recognition of time, memorizing grammar rules, I achieved the result that I needed to complete my degree in special education. As a non-traditional student, it was difficult at first to revisit topics that I learned in high school, but Mr.Glenn taught me how to prepare for the test. He helped to raise my scores in Reading by 7 points, in Science by 3 points, and in Math by 2 points. My greatest gain was in English where I went up 9 points! Thank you Mr. Glenn for helping me to finally achieve the score I needed to complete my program your assistance and support was immeasurable. I would tell anyone looking to raise their score on the ACT to seek out tutoring from an expert like Mr. Glenn and ACT Prep Chicago.
"I liked how persistent Mrs Booker was when it came to homework and focusing on certain areas of improvement. A strategy she taught me that helped me was to read half of the reading passages at a time. It helped raise my score 5 points. Before this, I didn't take any ACT classes."
"My daughter scored well on several practice ACT Exams, but we wanted to get her over the 30 Composite score mark. I found ACT Prep Chicago through an internet search for the best programs in Chicago. We decided on one-on-one tutoring with Jordan Williams and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! Jordan and my daughter worked very well together meeting once a week over about a 7 week period of time. Jordan was warm, welcoming, patient and very knowledgeable about the ACT and test taking strategies. My daughter's score improved 4 points. Her Composite Score on her last official ACT Exam was over 30! Thanks for all of your efforts, Jordan!"

"Hi Mr Glenn. We got the score today. We did it!!!! Thank you very much! FAMU is aware and sending new letter with FULL tuition. God is so good!
Ms. McClendon has been invaluable. Marissa's overall success can in part be contributed to the weekly tutoring that she has received for the past 6+ years. Ms. McClendon has helped map out work, project plans, strategies for assignments and then provided guidance proactively for upcoming courses. She has also motivated Marissa in times of burn out. She has counseled Marissa when day to day situations arose that distracted her from her work. Again, her contribution has been invaluable."
"While taking this course, I felt I was being taught at my own pace. I knew from the first class that the instructors were actually giving me what I needed to do better on my ACT. They gave me time saving strategies and helped me remember information from past classes. They also gave me new information that I found very helpful. The one-on-one tutoring was extremely helpful. I got to ask my own questions and go over material I found challenging. My one-on-one tutor, Ms Williams, was very patient. She not only wanted me to get a problem correct, but also wanted me to grasp the concepts. One of my instructors, Mr Glenn, was calm while teaching and encouraged us to look for different ways to find an answer. He didn't believe his way was the only way. My experience with ACT Prep Chicago Was excellent. I recommend ACT Prep Chicago to anyone who wants to get a higher ACT score."

"I came to ACT prep Chicago a student with average study skills and average at best test taking skills. ACT prep Chicago is a facilitator of transformation. It gives every student the tools for success with the expectation that every student will accomplish his goal. Through the diligent efforts of Mr. Glenn and all the other dedicated staff, I was transformed into a better test taker and consequently a better student. ACT prep Chicago has test preparation to a science. The first step starts with a student being willing to be challenged. Somewhere in the middle, there is Mr. Glenn instilling a diligent work ethic in every student. The constant repetition of the function of each “Fanboy” seemed painful, but, like everything else, it served a purpose. The final step, sometimes distant, is reaching the goal or score you want. My favorite thing about Act Prep Chicago is how limitless the atmosphere is. After a student achieves the score they want, there is always the option to continue with test preparation to do even better. Because of the diligent work ethic instilled early on, I was able to meet and exceed my goals as a student and as a test taker. ACT test prep has unlocked doors for me in high school and will continue to open doors for the rest of my life."
"You may not know that I had to drag Jarron (my son) kicking and screaming to your class. He swore up and down that he didn't need prep (for the ACT). You first impressed him by helping program the formulas into the calculator. Then, when he started improving under your instruction, he finally thanked me. Now he is passing on your training to his friends who are not happy with the prep offered by the school. So some parents may contact you before the june test. He says he feels ready, and this is the first time he has said that. I feel this is the best thing I could have done for him. He has taken 4 full practice tests.. The most recent one from school he improved 3 composite points, with this highest score in English."
"Mr. Glenn targets the area(s) that need improvement and focuses on strategies and content to improve those areas. I learned that in the English section, I would finish very early and felt that I was in a good place but Mr. Glenn asked me to go back and review them and once I did I saw that there were a number of mistakes made. He told me to pace myself during the test and when I did I made fewer errors and raised my English score by 7 points."
"I started tutoring with Mr. Glenn with 4 weeks before the June ACT test. I came in at least once a week and really enjoyed my tutoring sessions. I felt that the only way to increase my score would be through tutoring. Mr. Glenn was a phenomenal tutor, he pushed me every step of the way and his positive encouragement and sincerity made it possible to reach my goal. With about 6 tutoring sessions I was able to improve 5 points. I couldn't have done it without Mr. Glenn. Thank you for everything"
"Hi Mr. Glenn. Alex went up 4 points on his 2nd practice ACT test! He said the help in sciecne was key. He really respects you as an instructor. Even after the first class he felt like he was exactly where he is supposed to be. Thank you so much for your contribution!"
"I entered this course head-on with no recommendations. I was pleasantly surprised by how young the instructors were. They were able to connect with me and teach me tricks and strategies I hadn't heard before. Mr. Glenn is also a "toughy", which I really liked. I also loved that there was weekly homework that kept me on track. "
"I was a little skeptical about the test preparation class initially. My son's pretest results were marginal. His post test results were fantastic! Mr. Glenn is patient and knowledgeable! His math skill and techniques are dynamic
and cutting edge. He's great with students. He has a way of tailoring his techniques to reach each child. Way to go, Mr. Glenn!"
"This Act prep course was just what I needed to boost my score to the next level. Mr. Glenn not only helped me on an academic level but he also connected with me on a personal level. I have learned from personal experience that you learn better from instructors who know you well and know your strengths and weaknesses. I could tell that Mr. Glenn wanted me to succeed just as much as I wanted myself to succeed and i thank him for the experience."
"We were blessed to have found ACTPrep Chicago online . Their schedule of Sundays 2-5pm and Wednesday nights was perfect for us. The classrooms were nice and building secure . Mr Glenn is outstanding with teenagers as he cares and keeps them accountable, which our son dearly needed. I only wish we could have used their services earlier. Our son's score went up and now he has more options for college. Plus The cost is very reasonable. We will recommend them always. Thanks."
"I got a 24 on my ACT my first time taking it. I would've gotten higher if I had managed to keep myself focused & not looking around on the reading portion. I received the following scores:
In this class, you receive personal & group training. You also gain skills in both test-taking strategies AND knowledge over materials covered on the test to make your every answer all the more efficient and to make you more proficient. It is a fun environment and you can not only talk with the instructor, but brainstorming is ENCOURAGED throughout the group. Each student receives an ACT prep booklet as long as they purchase them before they run out. Along with in-session official ACT practice tests, students do take home assignments in order to preserve the skills learned in class. You WILL have ample time to do the homework. You can also have 1-on-1 tutoring with Mr Glenn before and after sessions. Regardless of what you knew beforehand, you WILL gain more skills."
"Mr. Glen is amazing. His level of knowledge about the ACT test is out of this world. I would not go to anyone other than Mr. Glenn for ACT preparation."
