Distance Learning for GEAR UP

Distance Learning for GEAR UP The extra months at home due to COVID-19 have heightened the possibility of summer slide or summer setback, beginning earlier than usual as students face a lack of motivation and frustration over the “new” way of learning. In addition to this, COVID-19 has magnified the disparities that exist in our education system. This summer, students will need equitable education opportunities that prepare them for the 2020–2021 school year and beyond. GEAR UP students are the youth that MasteryPrep bases our mission on: Every student can graduate high school with a college ready ACT or SAT score. Every student deserves to. MasteryPrep wants to help lessen the effects of the summer slide and bridge the gap that restricts students from receiving the valuable opportunities they need to score college ready. To keep your GEAR UP students engaged and motivated over the summer, here’s what MasteryPrep is offering in its ACT and SAT summer programming. This also includes one $50 gift card for each student to reward them for their dedication to their college aspirations!

9 30 hours of live, virtual instruction that can be tailored to your needs, with options as low as 20 hours or as high as 40 hours, depending on student bandwidth. 9 A live expert instructor will teach students the skills they need to help bridge the gap between the curriculum learned this year and how it will be assessed on the test. 9 Equity and access for all students: Works from any major browser on any device. A phone dialin option is also provided. 9 A set of four ACT or SAT Mastery books, one for each subject, will be mailed directly to students. 9 Online practice testing replicates ACT testing environments. 9 Detailed class and student analyses allow our team to guide instruction and share areas of growth for your students. Your team will have access to all data. 9 GEAR UP programs can set up attendance requirements. MasteryPrep can monitor attendance in classrooms via the Kaltura platform.

Upon fulfillment of requirements MasteryPrep will issue one $50 gift card per student.

The MasteryPrep Distance Learning Difference

Games, quizzes, fun discussions, and group activities keep the instruction engaging.

High-energy instructors make prep something students look forward to.

Our software platform enables real-time monitoring so we can proactively intervene before students tune out.

Average class size kept under 30 so students get personal attention and assistance.

Our teachers take the time to answer students’ questions and help them through problems.

Because each student is provided with books, internet connection is optional (since they can dial in and follow along in print), and even a smartphone connection enables a full experience.

Class recordings enable students to review classes on demand and help them catch up if they miss a session.

Our instructors are trained in and exemplify best practices in online teaching.



ACT/SAT Boot Camp Add the perfect capstone to your summer program. Over 50,000 students attend MasteryPrep Boot Camps each year, and over 99% rate their experience positively. Now students can improve their core content proficiency and their time management and test-taking skills from home. Boost student confidence and inspire them to put their best foot forward on test day. • Live, online 4-hour event led by expert instructors. • ACT or SAT Boot Camp book delivered directly to students.


Professional Development Professional development that educators love, now in a convenient online form factor. Every program needs at least one ACT or SAT expert. Now everyone on your team can be. Engaging PD Programs are available—live, online, or on-demand. • Certification test available upon completion. • A live webinar version is also available.

College Playbook Just because students can’t come on campus doesn’t mean they can’t get guidance navigating the peaks and valleys of the college admissions process. The College Playbook is the ultimate guide to the college entrance process: it’s like having a personal college admissions coach in your corner. • Live, online workshops led by expert instructors. • College Playbook delivered directly to students.


Educators Love Our Distance Learning Programs “Amazing session!” “I’m positive that many people appreciate ACT Boot Camp. With the pandemic, this is a life-saver for those who need practice in weaker subjects and/or topics that pertain specifically to the ACT.” “The content was useful and explained in a simple way.” “I most enjoyed the efficiency of the program: there are no distracting alerts or sounds, and the layout is simple and easy to understand.”

And Students Do, Too! “The instructor did an excellent job explaining the material.” “I enjoyed gaining more knowledge about the ACT.” “I liked that our instructor was very involved and didn’t make everything seem like it would be the end of the world. He was very encouraging!” “I enjoyed all of it! I especially enjoyed how organized the whole thing was.”

His attitude and personality along with the fact that he knows what he’s talking about and let us get to know him more while still holding a good and structured meeting was the best.
