One-on-one tutoring for test taking is available for students planning to take the SAT, ACT, GED, TOEFL and more. If a student does well on their homework but tends to perform poorly on tests, we address test anxiety and how to manage test preparation without feeling overwhelmed. We also offer test taking strategies and tips that help students achieve higher test scores. Our coaches and tutors encourage students to trust their own instincts when taking tests, stay calm, be thorough and carefully identify the type of question being asked.

Our Fort Collins tutors also offer a Test Taking Skills class on Saturday mornings. This course is designed to strengthen students’ study skills by identifying challenging areas, familiarizing them with different methods of studying, and increasing their confidence. Students are prepared to accomplish higher potential ACT/SAT scores, as well as overall abilities in high school test taking and study skills. Please email director@leading-learners.com or call 970-226-8704 for more information. Additional in home tutoring is recommended for all students taking this class.
