Preparing for the Future

Since 2013, Dr. Ben Phillips has served as the Agency Director for Jane Ross Tutoring. Dr. Phillips is a former high school teacher and principal who continues to work with students by preparing them to raise their scores on the ACT and other college readiness assessments. Additionally, he facilitates professional development for middle and high school teachers, showing them how to integrate ACT prep into their regular classroom instruction and assessment.

Dr. Phillips also teaches in the School of Education at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. As a professor, one of his main research interests is raising rates of college readiness among high school students. He won a grant to study the cognitive strategies of high-performing test takers and frequently shares the fascinating results of that investigation at local, state, and regional conferences.

Dr. Phillips routinely reviews newly released ACT tests and analyzes each question, a process that guides the agency’s overall teaching approach. With the input of other experienced Jane Ross instructors, he oversees the development of new strategies, presentations, and printed resources to make sure our students are exposed to the most effective and most up-to-date training.
