By Diana Miller - For The News Journal



CLINTON COUNTY — The Southern Ohio Educational Service Center will host an “Attacking the ACT” workshop Saturday, Aug. 27 for juniors and seniors who will be taking the ACT for the first time or looking to raise their previous test scores.

It will take place at the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center at 3321 Airborne Road in Wilmington. The workshop will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and run until 3:30 p.m. A light breakfast, box lunch and beverage will be provided.

Leading the way to “Attacking the ACT” is former high school math teacher Bob Brausch, who has dedicated his professional career to empowering learners to reach and exceed their educational goals and achieve their highest potential.

As an independent contractor, Brausch teaches math and science ACT preparation classes. He is also a certified MasteryPrep ACT BootCamp instructor, a math and physics ACT tutor, and adjunct instructor for Urbana University.

As a professional instructor and mentor, Brausch’s experience in teaching, tutoring, and engineering, has equipped him to handle instructional situations with energy and creative problem solving.

This six-hour workshop will tackle the three components necessary for successful completion of the ACT: Test-taking skills; mental stamina and timing; and ACT content in English, math and science.

Each participant will also receive a workbook, full-length test, and accompanying solutions manual that provides additional test prep practice questions. Students should bring a pencil and ACT-approved calculator the day of the workshop. See for calculator guidance.

The cost to attend the workshop is $60. Enrollment is limited, so register today to secure your opportunity to attack the ACT. Registration and additional information can be found at the SOESC webpage at
