Does your student’s ACT reading score need a boost?


Breakaway Test Prep is pleased to offer an innovative 2 hour advanced Reading bootcamp!  The Reading bootcamp is designed to help students improve their efficiency with the time-constrained reading section on the ACT.

  • Sunday, December 5th from 9:00 am – 11:00 am

These bootcamps are being held via zoom.

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.

Introducing Breakaway’s Reading Bootcamp

Breakaway’s Reading Bootcamp is designed to help students who struggle with the ACT reading test improve their efficiency and effectiveness at taking this test.  Bootcamp students will be instructed on ways to prioritize questions and spot correct answers more quickly. Students will also have the opportunity to take part in timed reading trials designed to boost their reading speed and comprehension. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to apply their new reading methods and question-answer strategies to ACT reading passages and to share feedback with the group.
