ACT Prep

About Our ACT Prep

Our students are academic, athletic, and artistic achievers who attend some of the best high schools in the country. They are innovators, entrepreneurs, and dreamers, who deserve the best of the best when it comes to academic help and test prep. For our industry leading tutors, it is an honor to help ACT students achieve their goals. And it is a privilege to aid in their future successes.

In 2018, the stakes could not be higher. High school students are tightly scheduled, overloaded with homework, and fully aware of the importance of standardized tests for college admissions and scholarships. But with the right prep, the ACT does not have to be a dark cloud over the high school experience — or an additional source of anxiety for students and families.

Here at Noodle Pros, we curate the best ACT resources and techniques so that you don't have to. We are masters of standardized tests who have worked with multiple iterations of the ACT for up to 32 years. We work with students and families to create personalized prep plans, and often require fewer hours than competitors to achieve similar results.

Noodle Pros use diagnostic exams, practice tests, and face-to-face meetings to quickly identify holes in students' knowledge and preparation, and to quickly introduce strategies to recalibrate performance. But we are not only fixers; we are also listeners. Our students trust us, because we treat them with respect and individualized care. And, of course, because Noodle Pros achieve results.

Our Noodle Pros tutor was able to strike that difficult balance between professional and caring. She knew her subject matter cold. My child's scores increased dramatically with her help.

ACT Parent

Teaneck, NJ

The tutoring I received from Noodle Pros made my confidence in the ACT skyrocket. My tutor easily found out how my brain works with math and explained concepts in a way that made sense to me specifically.

ACT Student

New York, NY

My son was already doing very well on practice tests, but our Noodle Pros tutor got him the score he wanted. Our tutor knew exactly what my son needed to focus on to get the perfect score. I credit our tutor's work with his success!

ACT Parent


Our tutor was very conscientious. He got to know my son personally, even though their meetings were online. He was always professional, prompt and very organized. He had excellent follow up, and after every session he gave me a thorough and very detailed review. My son did very well on the ACT, and even worked with our tutor a second time to improve the already excellent score. He achieved even a higher score on the ACT retake. I would definitely use Noodle Pros again for tutoring!
