Austin ACT Tutoring FAQ

If you think your student could benefit from extra help with ACT preparation, Varsity Tutors can connect you with experienced Austin ACT tutors. Working with a private instructor gives your student the time they need to understand troublesome topics. We can assist you in finding a tutor who has the expertise to help your student improve their competence in the subjects and gain confidence in test-taking.

The ACT is a nationally recognized college admissions exam that tests students in the areas of English, math, reading, and science with an optional written essay. There is an optional ACT writing test (ACT Plus) that measures the student's essay writing skills. The test consists of one writing prompt that will describe a complex issue and present three different perspectives on that issue. It is a paper-and-pencil test. Not all colleges require the ACT Plus, so it can be a good idea to find out whether it is a requirement at any of your student's chosen colleges.

The ACT is a curriculum-based test, and the questions on the test are directly related to what your student has learned in their high school courses up to grade 12. It can be a challenging test and your student's score can determine their college acceptances. It's wise to invest in Austin ACT tutors to increase your student's chances of performing well on the test.

What are the benefits of having my student study with Austin ACT tutors near me?

Austin ACT tutors can dedicate their time and offer their expertise in one-on-one sessions in which your student gets their undivided attention. A tutor can evaluate your student's aptitude in exam topics and come up with a plan customized to suit their learning needs. These lesson plans are designed to be flexible, so if your student quickly grasps the math section, for example, the tutor can move right into the reading portion of the test.

Austin ACT tutors are knowledgeable about the test as well as the subject areas being tested. A qualified ACT instructor can provide personalized lesson plans and learning techniques that resonate with your student's learning style. This can have a major impact not only on your student's test-taking abilities but their whole attitude on academics.

Austin ACT tutoring provides you with a personalized study plan targeted to address your student's academic needs. Preparing for the ACT alongside a supportive instructor allows your student to build a rapport with them. This trust and assurance in their mentor can help your student approach test prep in a completely different way.

In the classroom, your student may not get the opportunity to have a confusing concept thoroughly explained to them by the teacher. Working side-by-side with an instructor also provides your student with continuous, immediate feedback. In this way, they can make the best use of their time together and quickly correct mistakes before bad habits set in.

Perhaps your student is a visual learner struggling with interpreting equations. Their private instructor can use colorful graphics or flashcards to help illustrate a point and provide a review. Or, if they are an auditory learner struggling to identify the central ideas and themes in a reading passage, their private teacher can use a more discussion-based approach. Austin ACT tutoring offers a lot of different techniques to teach ACT topics, and try them out until they find the one that works best for your student.

Parents can benefit, too. If you're out of practice with your own math or science skills, for example, it can feel almost impossible to help your student prepare for the ACT. Having access to a private tutor to help your student hone these skills can take some of the pressure off of you. Enlisting the help of Austin ACT tutors and taking their suggestions provides you with ways to help your student with their studies at home.

What skills can Austin ACT tutoring cover with my student?

The ACT consists of four multiple-choice sections in English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. The exam takes approximately three and a half hours. The math section, for example, consists of 60 multiple-choice questions to measure the mathematical skills in pre-algebra, elementary and intermediate algebra, coordinate and plane geometry, and trigonometry. Working on math skills with a private instructor also allows your student to skip over the topics they've already mastered so they can address those that they're still struggling to understand. Also, when your student reviews their coursework with a private tutor, they can customize their teaching style to suit your student's needs.

A private instructor can teach your student test-taking skills that might help them work more efficiently through exam questions within the time limit by quickly eliminating incorrect or impossible answer choices, for example. Also, breaking down complex concepts or processes into small, easy-to-learn steps can help your student increase motivation by setting and achieving small goals. This way their study sessions are more efficient at targeting your student's areas of opportunity.

Learning new skills is hard work, so why not help your student make the best use of their time and focus on what matters the most. The ACT is a long test that can be stressful for many students. A private instructor can provide mindfulness exercises and stress management techniques to help them relax and focus on test day.

How can I fit Austin ACT tutoring into my student's schedule?

You may be wondering how you can find the time for another commitment in your family's busy schedule. Varsity Tutors has a convenient, effective solution. We can help you schedule either in-person or online sessions that work around your time constraints so that your student can get the support they need.

When you choose online sessions, there is an added convenience for you. Our Live Learning Platform makes it possible for your student to connect with Austin ACT tutors from any location with an internet connection. The platform offers several different features that enhance each session's efficiency, such as video chat, a virtual whiteboard, and a shared document editor.

Video chat allows your student to receive explanations of any concepts that are troubling them and talk to their instructor about different techniques they might try. The virtual whiteboard lets the instructor share graphics and other visuals to make a point, as well as to offer additional practice questions. The shared document editor allows the tutor to observe in real-time as your student works on a problem. If your student is struggling to solve it, their tutor can easily see where they went wrong and help them understand what to do in the future. The learning process is much smoother with this type of immediate feedback.

The Live Learning Platform gives your student the opportunity to engage with their instructor face-to-face without the hassle of commuting. All they need to start Austin ACT tutoring is a computer and internet connection. The quality of instruction is just as effective as in-person meetings and it gives you the freedom to choose the physical environment most conducive to studying. When they're ready to start their session, they simply log onto the Live Learning Platform from anywhere they choose, whether that's home, the Austin Central Library, or an empty classroom at their school. Austin ACT tutoring has never been so simple and convenient.
