If you're looking for some extra help as you or your student prepare for the ACT, Varsity Tutors can connect you with Boulder ACT tutors. The ACT is a standardized college admissions exam that is usually taken in a student's junior year of high school but available to both sophomores and seniors as well. Both the scope of the material covered by the exam and the rigorous nature of the test makes thorough preparation a prudent course of action. Our educational consultants can provide additional information on what it looks like to work with a private instructor, the benefits involved, and how to get started.

How can Boulder ACT tutors help me prepare for the exam?

Boulder ACT tutoring can help students review the material likely to be covered by the exam. Traditionally, there are four sections on the exam, including Math, Science, English, and Reading. Each section is scored on a scale of 1-36. The questions in each section can cover a wide variety of concepts as the test seeks to assess college readiness. Your private instructor can work with you to increase your memory of relevant concepts and develop your ability to apply skills like reasoning and deduction to other concepts as you prepare for the day of the test.

Boulder ACT tutoring can also help you prepare for the structure of the exam. The test itself is broken up by section with specific time limits per section. While there are no breaks, the exam is two hours and 55 minutes. Students have 60 minutes to answer 60 Math questions, 35 minutes to answer 40 Reading questions, 45 minutes to answer 75 English questions, and 35 minutes to answer 40 Science questions. All of these questions are multiple-choice questions. If you sit for the ACT Plus Writing version of the exam, there is an additional Writing section with one question in essay format which you have 40 minutes to complete.

Boulder ACT tutors can help you prepare for the structure of the exam in a few different ways. First, they can familiarize you with the question formats you're likely to encounter. Even if you're ready for the material you're likely to see on the test, if you're not used to the way the questions are phrased, it can be easy to get confused. This type of review can make it easier for you to demonstrate your comprehension. Second, they can introduce strategies that help improve your performance, from wrong answer elimination when you're not entirely sure of the right choice to time management to ensure you don't run out of time before completing the exam. Third, they can provide you with practice exams. One of the drawbacks of timed exams is that they can put a lot of pressure on a student. This pressure can be compounded when there's a lot - like college admissions - riding on the result. Practicing to perform under that pressure can help build confidence heading into the day of the big test.

What are the benefits of seeking out the help of Boulder ACT tutors near me?

Boulder ACT tutors are thoroughly vetted to make sure they have the expertise, experience, and skills necessary to guide you through the preparation process. Varsity Tutors takes the time to check out their background. These instructors are highly qualified. They know the material and they know the test. But it's not just about what they know; it's also about how well they can convey that information. Their communication skills are evaluated, too, to make sure they can effectively take you through the tutoring process.

Boulder ACT tutoring provides individualized attention that can deepen your comprehension levels. If you are studying on your own, you are limited to the resources in front of you, be that a series of books or the power of an internet search. Even if you're in a preparation course, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle of a group of students. With dedicated time with Boulder ACT tutors, you get a chance to ask questions in the moment to get clarity, helping to strengthen your understanding of the material as you go.

Boulder ACT tutoring can be tailored specifically to your needs. Your instructor can take the time to evaluate your current level of comprehension to identify both your strengths and weaknesses before developing a comprehensive lesson plan moving forward. This can make the time you spend studying with your instructor far more efficient than what you might get working from a book or in a standard preparation course. There's no need to waste time on subjects you already understand. Time can be better spent where you need the most attention.

Boulder ACT tutoring is also flexible. In a classroom setting, the teacher is tied to the curriculum. They can't always afford to slow down to make sure everyone is ready to move on if they want to stay on schedule. They only schedule your private instructor is worried about is yours. If it turns out you need a few more sessions to really feel like you're on solid ground with the biology material for the exam, then the lesson plan can get shifted around to make that happen. These sessions are all about you and your needs.

Boulder ACT tutors can customize their instruction techniques to cater to your learning preferences. Different people learn in different ways, and because these sessions take place on a one-to-one basis, your instructor can take that into account. If you are more of a visual learner, they can incorporate tools like flashcards to help you improve your recall. If you're more of an aural learner, they can introduce various mnemonic devices to strengthen your memory. Some students are naturally more competitive. If this is you, your instructor could use things like timed tests with performance rewards to encourage you. Other students recoil from this sort of instruction, preferring more of a nurturing touch. Whatever the case might be for you, Boulder ACT tutors can adapt to meet your needs.

Boulder ACT tutoring can be structured in a way that establishes transparency and accountability. Boulder ACT tutors can work with you to set SMART (specific, measurable, actionable, relevant, and timely) goals. These, in turn, can be used as a map to follow in your studies, a tool for measuring progress, a reminder to celebrate milestones, a way to look back and see how far you've come, and inspiration to keep reaching for that next milestone. It's also a great tool you can use in other academic and professional pursuits, providing benefits outside of studying for the ACT.
