Take a Baseline Test

Our ACT & SAT Test Prep Process

1. Get baseline test scores.

You can take a mock test with us or use your scores from previously administered official tests. We recommend taking both an ACT and SAT so we can help you decide which test is best for you.

2. Decide which program is best for you.

This depends on a number of factors, such as when you will take the test, what your baseline scores are, how much time you can allocate to studying, and more. We also offer tutoring by the hour if you’re not sure which program is best for you.

3. Match you with the best tutor.

Based on your strengths and weaknesses, as well your learning profile, we match you with the tutor who will best meet your needs.

4. Tutoring begins.

Sessions are typically once per week but scheduling is flexible, as is session length. You’ll have homework in between each session, including practice sections, full-length mock tests, and drills focused on target concepts. You and your tutor will review the homework in depth as you learn the techniques and strategies that will improve your scores.

5. Take your test!

Once you get your scores back, let us know what happened. We guarantee our work. The chart below shows our guarantees and rates. If your score doesn’t increase by the guaranteed amount, we will provide up to 14 hours of complimentary tutoring before the next test date.

Money-back Guarantee Explained:

We offer the 100% money-back guarantee for our 15, 25, 40, and 60 hour programs, since we know the time it takes to reliably make significant improvements.

We don’t like fine print but need to have a few rules:

  1. The Money Back Guarantee is only available to students who have not yet taken or studied for the SAT or ACT.
  2. You have to do all of your homework and complete all tutoring hours.
  3. You must take a certain number of mock tests (excluding the baseline test), as follows:
        15 hours: 3 mocks
        25 hours: 4 mocks
        40 hours: 6 mocks
        60 hours: 8 mocks
  4. You have to take the test twice while working with us and still not go up guaranteed amount, based on the superscore, to qualify for the guarantee.
  5. If you are 1 point away from your guarantee on the ACT, or 20 points or less on the SAT, then we will give 50% of your money back up to a superscore of 34 on the ACT or 1450 on the SAT
  6. You can opt for free tutoring until guarantee is reached, instead of money back.

Customer Testimonials


We are indebted to Mindspire Tutoring for the college acceptance and scholarships that my child received. Mindspire raised my son’s ACT scores by 7 points! His ACT score of 31 provided him with in-state tuition scholarships from many top out-of-state schools and got him into top in-state schools; thereby putting him in the driver’s seat to choose where he’d like to attend. I highly recommend Mindspire Tutoring.

— Christy F.


All the tutors at Mindspire Tutoring & Test Prep at TOP NOTCH! They specialize in finding the RIGHT tutor for your child; someone that fits with the way your student learns. Well worth the money for SAT/ACT prep. We especially loved Julianna!

— Tonya P.


Our son recently took their SAT prep class. It was a LOT of work outside the class so they need to do it at a time when they are not crazy busy but even so, our son increased his score by almost 200 points after taking this class. He now at least has a chance of going to the school he wants with his improved score!
