Some answers to your questions—hope this helps!
What are the differences between the ACT and the SAT?
First, all colleges accept either exam. The SAT favors a strong math student because 50% of the composite is derived from the two math sections. ACT offers easier math and is generally less wordy. However, you must work a bit faster on the ACT.
How many times can I test?
Numerous opportunities! ACT says 12 times, and SAT says an unlimited number of times. Keep at it for entrance into competitive majors and for grants/scholarships.
Are your Zoom courses effective?
Jeanius Prep offers live, small, personable classes taught by two experienced, insightful teachers. We can provide options if you are forced to miss a class, and we arrive early/stay after to offer more help if you need it.
Why are your courses so affordable?
We have helped thousands of students achieve their college and scholarship goals, and we know that we could charge much more based upon our knowledge and two decades of success as teachers. But we want everyone to be able to afford our courses and, if necessary, come back for more skill boosting at a nice discount. Each time we teach, we offer fresh practice tests and valuable coaching to raise your score.
What materials do students need for class?
Jeanius Prep supplies all course materials. Students are emailed the necessary class work each week. Students only need
to supply their own pencils and calculators.
What should I expect during a college advising session?
The student and parent(s)/guardian(s) will meet privately over Zoom with Jeanne and Jeanine. We will discuss high school classes/extracurriculars to consider, describe the differences between ACT and SAT, suggest possible majors, and offer a list of colleges/universities to research. Our goal is to answer any questions and clear up any confusion so that you feel confident embarking on the college application process.
Should I choose “test optional” colleges?
Many students have informed us that their colleges and universities are still requesting an ACT or an SAT score for placement, college major (especially business, engineering, health care) and scholarships. Every fall, we get panic-stricken calls from seniors who never tested and have been advised by their colleges to test before applying. Admission departments want as much information as you can send them, and they will reward you for your efforts.
Are there other benefits in taking a Jeanius Prep course?
Yes! Jeanne and Jeanine are enthusiastic teachers who will reinforce your grammar, math, reading comprehension, and logic skills—all vital for college and beyond. Boost your testing courage now: you’ll be prepared for college, graduate school, and your professional life—which might involve testing for licenses or certifications.
