FinnPREP Proven Method
This method has resulted in a documented average 5-point ACT score increase in only 6 weeks and has named us Iowa’s Premier ACT Prep company.
Our intensive class sessions, customized parent and student reminders, and follow-up communications create a top score for every student.
We meet with students in four 3-hour sessions:
- Introduction & Math Test session
- Math & Reading Test session
- English Test session
- Science Test session & Full test review
We believe students learn more and learn faster from an in-person teacher who knows them and cares about their academic progress. This philosophy is why we meet with students in face-to-face training sessions and then follow-up electronically to check that the practice is being done at home.

“FinnPREP began when a student asked me to prepare her for the ACT test. After the first prep session, I realized I was effective at teaching and motivating her to a score increase. My passion to help others led me to create the FinnPREP Method. Using the strategies and discipline that were successful for me in college, I designed a curriculum which is engaging and effective for teenagers.”
