Breakaway is pleased to present its proven bootcamps in advance of each national ACT test date.  The bootcamps are an ideal complement to Breakaway private instruction or small group instruction and can be helpful to a student who is looking to gain a point or two on a given section of the ACT.  For students who are just beginning the prep process and are looking to significantly improve their scores and increase their confidence with testing, Breakaway recommends starting with our private instruction or small group classes.

Concepts Covered in the English Bootcamp

The English bootcamp will cover the fourteen foundational grammar concepts commonly tested on the English section of the ACT. The instructor will introduce each principle in depth and then lead students through real examples of problems in which the material is tested. This bootcamp will build students’ confidence with the content and form of the English section, while giving them the opportunity to work through as many ACT problems as possible. The bootcamps are designed as a complement to regular tutoring and will give students a boost in preparation for the upcoming ACT.

The English bootcamp will cover:

  • Independent, dependent, and non-essential clauses
  • Prepositional phrases
  • Appositives
  • Uses of colon, semi-colons, and commas
  • Verb tense and agreement
  • Pronouns, possessive pronouns, and relative pronouns
  • Redundancy
  • Rhetorical questions about text structure, content, and organization


Barbara Jeffers holds a B.A. in English from St. Olaf College and an M.A. in English from Northwestern University; she has also achieved candidacy for a Ph.D. degree in English at Northwestern.
