Welcome to Breakaway Test Prep!

We are thrilled that you are considering us for your student’s ACT Prep needs! Your student’s ACT and/or SAT score is important. Higher standardized test scores can not only help improve candidacy at target colleges, better scores can also improve access to merit scholarships. In fact, many schools give out guaranteed scholarships to students whose scores meet a minimum threshold.

Introducing Breakaway Test Prep! We are the Twin Cities’ leading provider of private, one-on-one ACT and SAT tutoring services. Our combination of a proven approach, top-notch instruction, and access to weekly practice tests makes our test prep unmatched.

One-on-one instruction is at the heart of what we do. Our students know the ACT or SAT score that they need and we help them reach that goal. Our program is rigorous, and our results are remarkable.

How does it work?

If your child has not taken a recent, real ACT or SAT within the last 2-3 months, we recommend signing up for an upcoming practice test. Click here to register for a practice test. Beginning with a practice test gives students critical experience dealing with the pressure of the test situation. It also provides us with a baseline score.

If your student has already completed a recent ACT or SAT, we recommend jumping right into our test prep program. Our Victoria ACT Prep program includes the following:

  • Access to more than 40 practice ACTs and SATs
  • Comprehensive reviews of all of the commonly tested concepts in grammar, Algebra I and II, geometry, trigonometry, and other advanced math concepts
  • Critical test-taking and time management strategies for all sections of the ACT
  • Convenient lesson times and locations. Instructors are available seven days per week, daytimes, and evenings
  • A proprietary and proven course manual that provides thorough overviews of each section of the test, including key concepts and hundreds of sample problems
  • Access to Breakaway’s proctored practice tests held nearly every weekend of the year
