How can a tutor help you master the ACT Aspire?
The ACT Aspire is a computer-based exam that tracks students' academic progress from third grade to early high school. A student's score on this important test can aid their teachers in determining if they have mastered all of the skills and concepts recommended for their specific grade level, or if they need additional review and intensified attention in order to meet Common Core benchmarks. The ACT Aspire tests a wide range of subjects, including English, math, reading, science, and writing. Because of the diversity of content tested on this exam, the test may highlight areas in which a student struggles. While such feedback can help educators gain a clearer picture of a student's progress, your student's test anxiety, the exams computerized format, and the length of the test (just under a total of four hours for each grade level) can lead students to falter and fail to demonstrate the skills they have attained. If your student is nervous about taking the ACT Aspire or doesn't feel confident in their skills in one of the tested subject areas, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with a dedicated ACT Aspire tutor.
Customized individual instruction might be just the thing to help your student practice the concepts they struggle with and prepare them to demonstrate his or her abilities fully on the ACT Aspire. Whether your student is a third-grader struggling with summarizing a reading passage or an eighth-grader who finds substitution and elimination bewildering in algebra class, ACT Aspire tutoring can offer them expert instruction custom-tailored to address the subjects and topics in which they most need to improve their understanding. ACT Aspire tutors know the ins and outs of the test and have the teaching skills to make the concepts at each grade level intuitive and clear to students.
Our educational directors can help you connect with the ACT Aspire tutor whose skillset best matches your student's particular strengths and weaknesses, concerns, and learning style. Your student's tutor can then assess their mastery of the various subjects covered on the ACT Aspire and design a focused learning plan aimed at helping them bolster their weaker areas of understanding. If your student feels relatively confident in their abilities, but is unsure of how to best approach the test's computerized format or one of its many specific question types, your student's tutor can help them learn test-taking strategies that can help increase confidence so your child is ready to do their best on test day.
Is your child's schedule completely filled with classes and activities? This doesn't have to hinder their performance on the exam. An ACT Aspire tutor can meet after school or even on the weekend. It's also possible to set up appointments at home, at the library, or even request face-to-face online sessions using our live learning platform. Your student will get the benefits of one-on-one instruction that is not one-size-fits-all. Even preparatory classes have to cover a lot of ground for many students; your child's tutor will focus only on what your student needs to learn. By working at your child's pace, the tutor can also measure progress on a consistent basis. There may be assignments, practice tests, and even homework. This is all to benefit your student in the long run, maximize their chances of scoring well on the ACT Aspire, and prove they are on track and ready for the next grade level.
