ACT Private Tutoring in Auckland (New Zealand)

Students taking the ACT must begin their preparation plans well in advance of the test date. Manhattan Review is Auckland's top resource for on-site ACT prep courses, online ACT instruction, ACT private tutoring, and ACT practice tests. Our students dramatically improve their skills on all sections of the ACT, and they also learn how to craft effective out-of-class study strategies and how to approach the test in the most optimal manner possible. Our one-on-one private ACT instruction is intended for students who wish to improve their ACT scores as quickly as possible, and our individual learning plans are customized to the unique educational needs of each client. Our ACT group courses are for students who are most comfortable in classroom environments and who learn most effectively through interaction with fellow pupils. Manhattan Review has been a leading international test prep firm since we were founded in 1999, and we have taught thousands of students how to receive the ACT scores expected or required by selective undergraduate programs.

ACT performance for the total group of test-takers has substantially improved over the past several years. In the 1990s, perfect composite scores of 36 were extraordinarily rare (just 74 of 959,301 students, or less than 0.0078%, scored a 36 in 1997). By 2012, this number had jumped to 0.047%, and in 2014, 0.076% received a 36 (almost a ten-fold increase over 1997). Average ACT scores at highly selective universities have also grown significantly. At Dartmouth College, the 25th and 75th percentile ACT scores for new students were 27 and 33 respectively in 2003-04. The middle-50% ACT score range for Dartmouth first-year students was 30-34 in 2016-17. A much larger group of students are now choosing the ACT over the SAT. Just 9% of Dartmouth students opted for the ACT in 2003-04, while nearly half (47%) took the ACT in 2016-17. Students who wish to submit competitive university applications must undergo rigorous preparation in order to receive their highest possible test scores.

Manhattan Review's prep services have a long history of getting students accepted to their first-choice schools. Our clients have pursued and completed degrees at MIT, Caltech, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon, Dartmouth, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern, the University of Chicago, UC Berkeley, the University of Michigan, Cornell, Brown, Columbia, and many more. After becoming alumni of these elite institutions, some of our clients have chosen employment with top companies in Auckland, including Bank of New Zealand, Les Mills International, Pumpkin Patch, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, and Briscoe Group. We also have former students who are now well-compensated employees of Fortune 500 companies, such as Berkshire Hathaway, Apple, New York Life Insurance, Lockheed Martin, and JP Morgan Chase. Success in life begins early, and those who plan for the long term are much more likely to achieve their goals than those who do not.
