“At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of the parents.”

Happy Spring! It is so nice to feel the warmth of the sun and hear the birds happily chirping.

For the first time this year, the state of Minnesota will be requiring all juniors to take the ACT test on April 28th during the school day. This is a great opportunity for students because unlike other standardized tests they take in school, this one can be used for college admissions!

However, I feel that students and parents need to realize that the results will not come for 3-8 weeks after they take the test. When taking it on a national test day, it takes only 2 weeks to get results.  This is important to know because the registration deadline is May 8th (late registration with a fee is May 22nd) for the June test. If students plan on taking the June test, they should not wait for the results from April to come to do so. The results could come after the June 13th test day has passed.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about the ACT test. I enjoy sharing the information with parents and students!


All Star Achievement:

The great thing about online tutoring is that there are not any geographical limits. I recently hired a fantastic tutor who lives in New York.  She is a Yale grad who will be going to med school next fall. She has a great personality to go along with her intellect. I find her SKYPE ID rather funny though—it is thedummie2. Not a good one for a tutor!
