Very few things are perfect the first time around, even more so when you’re talking test taking. Nerves, fears, lack of preparation; they can all lead to a less-than-desirable ending. If you or a loved one is taking the SAT or ACT anytime soon, help is available in the Cleveland area. SAT and ACT prep courses are offered; some longer than others, some formal, some informal, but all are available. The multiple options of preparation are perfect because no kid learns the same way, so no high school student should be forced to prepare the same way. Professional tutors can come to your home, meet at a neutral location or exam material can be mailed. With this kind of personal attention, that perfect score is yours for the taking.
