Private ACT or SAT Instruction

Every week of the year, Breakaway is pleased to provide private, one-on-one instruction for the ACT and SAT to students throughout Minnesota, western Wisconsin and northern Iowa.   We think that our combination of a proven approach, great instruction and outstanding customer service makes test prep with Breakaway unbeatable.

Breakaway’s test prep process begins by having students complete a full-length practice test.  If your student has already taken a real ACT, those test scores can be used to serve as a baseline score prior to beginning prep.  To register for a practice test, please click here.  If you’re ready to begin prep, please click here to complete an inquiry form.
