ACT (American College Testing assessment)

Most colleges accept the ACT (American College Testing assessment) in place of the SAT. Students generally take the ACT in the spring of their junior year and, if necessary, again in the fall of their senior year.

The ACT has the advantage that it can be taken several times allowing you to submit your best score.

Private ACT tutoring and one-on-one intensive ACT test prep classes are available in-person with Dr. Donnelly at our comfortable office located at 1460 Broadway, Suite 15017 here in Manhattan. Our quiet teaching rooms are fully equipped with whiteboards and all the necessary teaching materials required to provide an ideal learning environment.

For information about rates and availability or to set up a free consultation, please contact Dr. Donnelly at:

Recent ACT Students' Reviews

5 star review - Vaishivi J., Manhattan, NY

"I want to start with saying that you are an amazing tutor! My composite went from a 29 the last two times I took the ACT to a 33! You helped me achieve a 11 point jump on my science section, and a full 4 points on my composite in the two months you tutored me! Thank you so much, I will recommend you to all my friends, and hopefully in a few years be back in your office for help on the MCAT's. Thank you again"


5 star review - Jacqui S., Manhattan, NY

"Dr. Donnelly's private tutoring stands apart from other mainstream/commercial review programs because he isolates an individual's weaknesses and tailors a successful review and test-taking strategy that conforms to an individual's needs -- rather than those of the masses. Dr. Donnelly was able to quickly understand and dissect my thought process in order to help me break old habits and establish stronger test-taking skills so I could get that higher score I wanted."


5 star review - Mary G. Lawton, Head Mistress, French International School (Hong Kong)

"I rate Stuart as an excellent teacher. He inspires the brilliant students, but also encourages those who may find certain topics quite difficult. His lessons are well structured...and it is obvious that he thoroughly enjoys his work In conclusion, Stuart is a talented and a dedicated teacher".


4 star review - Neelu., Manhattan, NY

"The fundamentals I learned from Dr. Donnelly were very helpful. I received the one-on-one attention that I did not receive in the Kaplan prep test. I did not feel embarrassed to ask basic questions. Dr. Donnelly was very patient with explaining concepts in detail until I understood. Additionally, he was always available via email or phone."


5 star review - Mia P., Manhattan, NY

"Dr. Donnelly is a wonderful teacher. He is quick to pinpoint weaknesses and, in many cases, turn them into strengths. He always has a structured lesson plan and pertinent homework assignments and puts aside time in the lesson to go over "trouble problems" from the previous lesson. I highly recommend taking a prep course with him. His patience, humor, and kindheartedness makes an otherwise uncomfortable standardized test almost enjoyable."


5 star review - E. H. Clements, Head of Mathematics, French International School, Hong Kong

"Dr. Donnelly has shown himself sensitive to the needs of his students, responding to their questions, offering reassurances, when necessary, and challenging pupils to consider the subject matter in depth. I recommend him to you without hesitation."


5 star review - Mike H., Greenwich, CT

"Dr. Donnelly has a real knack for explaining topics in plain English and for making them come alive with real-life examples. I would encourage anyone who needs to get up to speed in their preparation for undergraduate or graduate studies to give Dr. Donnelly a call. You won't regret it!"


5 star review - Jodi B., Manhattan, NY

"Dr. Donnelly was patient, kind and willing to work with me in various areas to help improve not just my score but my understanding of the questions. His schedule is flexible and he is willing to work with you to give you what you need. My score went up dramatically and I would recommend Tutors of Oxford to anyone."
