ACT private tutoring helps students bridge from the classroom to the ACT. The ACT is a subject based test, and to score well students must have a background that includes English grammar and punctuation, math skills that range from basic math to trig, a high level of reading proficiency, and a background in science, including chemistry, biology, and physics. It is not an easy test, and students who do not prepare can be caught off guard and score poorly. High ACT scores are the keys to college admission and scholarship awards, and private ACT tutoring will maximize students’ scores.
What is private ACT tutoring?
Private ACT tutoring is the most beneficial ACT tutoring available because every session is geared to the student’s specific strengths and needs. ACT tutors are specialists in their field who can answer subject questions while also teach specific test strategies.
During private ACT tutoring sessions, students
- Set a goal score and learn how many questions they have to answer correctly to meet it.
- Work with two subject specialist coaches: English/Reading and Math/Science.
- Receive customized test-taking strategies and subject review in English and Math.
- Complete homework that includes practice tests and review.
- Vary in the number of tutoring sessions that are scheduled. A quick rule of thumb is a minimum of 4 hours per subject area, for a total of 16. Many students require more—others fewer hours.
- Are not locked into a contract. We recommend 1.5 hr. sessions to maximize efficiency. Call for additional information and to set up an appointment.
