Assessing Your Child’s Processing Skills

If you are concerned about your child’s testing abilities, we strongly encourage you to bring them in during the fall months for a Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills. This comprehensive examination, which costs $70, will clearly identify any processing weaknesses that may impede test taking performance. 

We can work with your student to strengthen their processing skills while also covering test preparation. Once their processing issues are addressed, a student can take a standardized test and see their scores soar! 


More than two million students take the SAT and ACT tests each year, making it tough to be accepted into the best colleges and universities. At Connections, we are dedicated to helping your college-bound son or daughter receive the highest scores possible on the ACT/SAT. A good score will improve their chances of getting into the school of their choice, as well as the possibility of receiving scholarships. We want to help your student get there with our test preparation in Chicago. 

Connections Learning Center has a proven track record raising test scores. We fully prepare students for the ACT and make sure they build the skills and confidence needed to do their personal best on test day. Whether it is the student’s first time taking the test or the third, we provide highly individualized training and exam prep in Chicago to help them improve their performance. 

If your student is diagnosed with a learning disability or has scored lower than 19 on a previous ACT, we recommend remediation before they begin ACT prep classes with us.

All our ACT prep is done one-on-one.  Students work with highly qualified teachers who individualize the work based on the needs of the student.

We offer classes to prepare 7th and 8th graders for the private high school entrance exams or the Chicago Public Schools Selective Enrollment exam.
