Our elite team of tutors has been helping students realize their academic potential—and their dreams—for over a decade. Let us do the same for you.



Unlike the SAT, the ACT has no preliminary test—and its combination of four distinct subject areas and a grueling pace can surprise unprepared students. Fortunately, this means that careful study and practice can result in even greater score gains than on the SAT.

Start your student’s course of study with one of our free diagnostic tests, which we use to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses down to individual questions and subtopics. When students enroll in one of our individualized ACT prep courses, we continue using the analytics both to see where they are, and help them get to where they want to be—all the way up to the test itself.

Based on the diagnostic results and your schedule and preferences, we will match your student with a professional, Los Angeles based ACT tutor who will work hand in hand to optimize the learning experience. Our veteran instructors average over 5 years’ experience of ACT tutoring, have all attended our own proprietary training program, and are the best suited to help your student achieve their score goals.

Our hand-picked tutors help each student learn the concepts in the subject areas they struggle with the most, adjusting to personality and learning style. Our tutors are also knowledgeable about many of the nation’s top universities and can assist you with the entire college application process.



Over the last decade, we have helped hundreds of students discover new interests, master difficult subjects, and learn how to learn. In fact, we are so confident that you will be happy with your results that we offer a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee*.

In dialogue with you and your student, our Program Director will lay out several possible courses of study. Each will involve tailored approaches to subject scores, coaching goals, levels of technological integration, as well as variations of community support from parents, teachers, administrators, and admissions counselors. Once we design a plan that gets you excited and inspired, we can get to work—and your student can focus exclusively on the test. Below is an example of four personalized curricula we offer for ACT test preparation.

I worked with LA Tutors to help me prepare for the ACT, and I couldn’t be happier. I worked with Negin, who was very helpful and extremely patient with me. Before I was averaging a 30 on the ACT, but by the end, my score went up by three points. Everyone at LA Tutors was helpful, even Arash, who consistently checked up on my progress and kept in touch with my parents and myself. Overall, I would definitely recommend working with LA Tutors.

Due to my family’s financial struggles, LA Tutors provided me with a full scholarship tutoring course and helped me reach my ACT goal. I started off with a 25 and ended up scoring my personal goal of a 30 on the real exam. Their individualized tutoring helps target the exact areas you need to work on and my tutor, Linda, was great! She gave me the tools to grow and tips/tricks for test day. Thank you so much to everyone at LA Tutors!

Chloe and I both have great appreciation and respect for each tutor who met with her, not only for their knowledge base and subject matter expertise but for their ability to understand and approach learning on a very individual level. Tutoring definitely helped and it showed — she scored in the 99th percentile on her ACT! The knowledge and skills accumulated with LA Tutors not only prepared my child extremely well for standardized testing but set her up for success in college and beyond.

After taking both the SAT and ACT practice tests, we decided to work on the ACT which was a better fit. I worked with LA Tutors to help me prepare for the test, and I couldn’t be happier. Chris and Albert were my tutors, who were very knowledgeable and extremely patient with me. Before tutoring I scored 27 on the ACT, but by the end, my score went up to 34, a 7-point improvement. Everyone at LA Tutors was helpful and consistently checked up on my progress and kept in touch with my parents. Overall, I would recommend working with LA Tutors to all my friends and family members.

Veronica had a couple of questions on the math problems in the practice test as well as some of the simplifying complex number problems, so we worked on those together. Overall, she is doing well with the material and even though the material can be quite difficult, she puts in great effort! She has a great habit of writing out all of her work, which can be difficult to get students to do.

Mallory continues to improve fast! Today, she did an entire grammar passage (fifteen questions) without a single mistake. Science is on the rise as well. Her speed of solving math questions is becoming quite impressive. There's a bit more work to do in reading and writing. The first essay she had written at home had a solid central idea but lacked specifics. We'll spend more time on that over the next few weeks.

I tried a new approach with Chloe's science section, as the first few passes through exercises we caught several mistakes per simulation. I had her actively reading and annotating the diagrams with reference to axes/labels and relationships between the graphs. This resulted in 100% accuracy on two simulations back to back, which was a huge success. Great work and progress!

Adam worked on the math and english sections of the ACT. I have great faith in Adam's ability to bring his score up on test day. Adam is bright and has solid mathematical reasoning skills; his main problem right now is not reading the questions carefully enough, which causes him to solve for the wrong unknown.
