ACT Tutoring in Long Beach (California)

Students in Long Beach preparing to take the ACT have a trusted partner in Manhattan Review. Founded in 1999, we have been helping students for more than two decades to polish their college applications with a top-tier standardized test score. We know that students have different learning styles and needs, and we are committed to meeting the needs of our clients. To start, we offer a variety of learning plan options, including on-site and interactive online group courses, personalized one-on-one tutoring, practice ACT exams, and consultation services. Some students find that the dynamic atmosphere of a group course with peers and an experienced instructor is the most engaging way to prepare to take the ACT. Others find a group either distracting or a bit too general for their particular needs. For those students, we suggest working privately with one of our learning coaches to attack deficiencies and build up strengths in an entirely personalized manner. We have professionals ready to discuss your options with you today and help craft the best overall learning plan. You can reach us via email, phone call, or chat with us online.

When preparing our students to take the ACT, we begin by discussing their school or schools of choice and look at the average ACT score at that school. While national averages are interesting to read about, they do not give prospective students the whole story of what scores they will need to enter a program they are interested in. Most universities will publish class profiles with data about test scores, unweighted and weighted GPAs, number applied and number admitted. These data help to set goals as students complete their applications. For example, the University of California, Los Angeles reports that the top 75th percentile of their accepted in-state students earned a 33 composite score, while the bottom 25th percentile earned a 23. We suggest that students aim for the top percentile scores, especially in a competitive university like UCLA. While they do accept students with a 23 on the ACT, they are looking at almost 70,000 applications from California residents alone (more than 110,000 in total). Of those nearly 70,000 applicants from California, only 8,000 were accepted. Therefore, students have to stand out in any way they can. You have already earned a high GPA, participated in sports and extra-curriculars, so now we want to join forces with you to really shine on the ACT as well.

Manhattan Review clients in Long Beach and across the world who have gone on to take the ACT have found that they achieve the top scores they worked towards and have been accepted to some of the most elite programs in the country, including the University of California, Los Angeles, Princeton, the University of Virginia, the California Institute of Technology, the University of California, Berkeley, Yale, Duke, Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Texas-Austin, the University of Washington, the University of Michigan, Cornell, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon, and countless others. After finishing their undergraduate studies, our test prep clients regularly go on to work for some of the best companies in the nation, including Fortune 500 companies, such as Microsoft, Walgreens, Wells Fargo, General Electric, Walt Disney, Apple, and more. Many of our past students have returned to Long Beach to accept positions at Boeing, Epson America, Inc., Pioneer Electronics, Molina Healthcare, Inc., and other firms based in the region.

Meet a Long Beach ACT Tutor: Trent J.

Trent J., a New Orleans native, earned his bachelor's in biology from Vanderbilt. He was then admitted to one of the top entomology programs in the country at the University of California in Riverside, where he earned his master's. He now teaches courses in biology and entomology at the college level, and has been working as an ACT and SAT tutor with Manhattan Review since 2014 where he gets a great satisfaction out of helping students who are just starting their post-secondary academic career.

Trent's clients love that he has a rigorous program without being a drill sergeant. He incorporates bug facts into each lesson, adding just enough quirk to keep things interesting, but also brings perspectives of college life and professor expectations to his students who want to learn all they can about the college experience. When Trent isn't working with his students, he is hunting for Long Beach's best gumbo or attending Jazz concerts.
