Costa Mesa ACT Tutoring


Get a FREE Consultation!

Our ACT Tutoring program in Costa Mesa is by far the most specialized in Southern California and possibly even in the country. Our program is so different because of how and why the ACT Tutoring Program was written to begin with. What many people don’t realize is that every large ACT Tutoring company hires writers to put their large programs together. But are these writers in touch with the students' needs by working as ACT tutors in the past? Often times not! Believe it or not, many ACT Tutors in Costa Mesa use courses that are put together by the larger companies and are not written with the typical student in mind. These companies invest heavily in the look and feel of their course, while often times neglect investing critical attention to the minute, individualized details which our company focuses on. Unfortunately, more often than not, a student needs exactly that.

That is why Tier One Tutors was created, and is also why we've been so successful the last few years. The ACT Tutoring program was put together over a long period of time, and is based in part on actual ACT questions. Unlike every other ACT Tutor in Costa Mesa who wrote programs before they even knew what exactly was going to be on the new test, we pushed the money aside and strove for perfection.  The fruit of our labor has finally shown through in our specialized and unique approach to the ACT!

The writers of our ACT Tutoring program are the two young, dynamic, and ambitious owners of Tier One Tutors, Steve Dorfman and Brian Mupo. Both of them have spent untold amounts of hours writing and developing this system.  Their unique SAT and ACT programs are the backbone of Tier One Tutors which serves all of Southern California, including Costa Mesa.

So, if you're looking for an ACT tutor in Costa Mesa, call us at Tier One Tutors today!

Costa Mesa: A Cultural Center with Spanish Roots

A city of around 109,960 residents, Costa Mesa is a great coastal town in the south of California. Here, we will explore the background of this town, which was established in 1920, and incorporated in 1953. We will discuss its roots in Spanish explorers, transformation from Harper to Costa Mesa, what it looks like today, as well as why Costa Mesa well earns the right to use the city motto, “City of the Arts!” Hopefully this article will give you some insight into why Costa Mesa is such a great place. 


Costa Mesa was first visited by Spanish Catholics in the 1760s. Soon after their visit there, a mission was established in the town named San Juan Capistrano. The land where this town was established was granted to a man by the name of Jose Antonia Yorba by the Spanish Empire in 1801. The railroads would bring settlers to the area around 70 years later. This town, known as Fairfield, was flooded and abandoned around a decade later.  Harper later sprang up in the same area. Known as a farming community, it was not until around 1920 that the residents changed the name of their town to Costa Mesa, meaning coast table in Spanish. 

Costa Mesa Today

Since the 1950s, Costa Mesa has grown into a small town with light manufacturing, tourism, and retail. The majority of residents living there are Caucasian. Mostly, you will find single-family households in the area, with around 3.3 people per household. Most residents are aged 18 to 24 years old. The average resident is about 37 years old. The majority of residents here rent, as opposed to buying houses. There are also slightly more males living in the area than there are females. 

Culture and More

Costa Mesa is home to the Pacific Amphitheater, the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, as well as the South Coast Repertory Theatre. Each year, these places host well-known musicians, comedians, and performers. They host plays, as well. The fair in Costa Mesa is the one of the largest of its kind in all of California, and occurs every July. There are plenty of parks, libraries, various businesses, newspapers, and schools in the community. A municipal golf course is also located there. One of the largest shopping centers of its kind in the nation, South Coast Plaza, calls Costa Mesa its home.
