Detroit ACT Tutoring FAQ

If your student could use some extra assistance as they study for the ACT or ACT Plus Writing Varsity Tutors can connect you with qualified Detroit ACT tutors. The ACT is a test that colleges and universities take into account when making their admissions decisions. As such, it can be useful for your student to study with someone who has experience with the ACT and can help them review content and develop test-taking strategies.

The ACT consists of four sections, including math, reading, science, and English. The ACT Plus Writing consists of five sections, including math, reading, science, English, and writing. Working with a private instructor enables your student to ask as many questions as they need to in order to understand the topics that will likely be on their exam. Our dedicated educational consultants can help you find a Detroit ACT tutor who can help your student increase their knowledge and confidence in preparation for taking the ACT.

How is Detroit ACT tutoring different from group study sessions?

When your student works with Detroit ACT tutors, they receive the undivided attention of their instructor as they will be the only student working with them during a study session. One of the challenges of group study sessions is that there is no guarantee that the other members of your student's group will have trouble with the same topics. As such, your student may be spending a significant amount of time studying topics they already know while not focusing much attention on the topics they need the most help with.

This isn't a problem when working with Detroit ACT tutors because your student is in control of the topics they prioritize. For example, if your student is having a tough time with the Math section but not the Reading section, they can devote most of their attention to learning topics like interpreting equations and less time going over vocabulary words.

Your student's Detroit ACT tutor can also identify what their specific learning strengths are. This can enable them to adapt the way they teach to fit your student's specific learning style. For example, if your student is more of a visual learner, diagrams and notecards can be a good option while discussions and lectures may be a better option for auditory learners.

Detroit ACT tutoring can also help your student in terms of answering any questions they might have. This may not always be possible in a group study session because their instructor may have limited time. This isn't a problem when working with Detroit ACT tutors as your student can ask as many questions as they need to in order to fully grasp the information.

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

Detroit ACT tutors can assess your student's skills and put together a plan that is designed to facilitate their learning needs. These customized lesson plans are flexible so if your student makes quick progress on number systems, they can quickly transition into numerical reasoning.

The personalized nature of Detroit ACT tutoring enables your student's personal mentor to really get to know them. They can develop individualized plans that make the most sense to your student. Studying alongside supportive Detroit ACT tutors enables your student to make a connection with their tutor that can help your student approach the ACT in a completely different way.

When your student is facing a confusing problem that may show up their exam, they may not have the opportunity to have the concept thoroughly explained to them if they're studying on their own or in a group. The individualized nature of private instruction can also help your student feel more comfortable and potentially more willing to seek help when they need it.

Working with a mentor on an individual level also enables your student to receive instant feedback. Many of the topics on the ACT are connected to each other, so a failure to understand one of the topics could result in not understanding others. It can be beneficial for your student to start out with the basics so that they can build a strong foundation before moving on to more complex topics.

In addition to helping your student review content, Detroit ACT tutoring can assist your student with test-taking strategies. One of the best ways to work on these strategies is by taking practice exams because they can assist your student with a variety of strategies. One such strategy is time-management. While managing your time effectively isn't a substitute for knowing content, it can make a difference in whether your student has a chance to answer each question to the best of their ability.

Your student can calculate how much time they can spend on each question, but it can be easy to get lost when taking the actual exam and spend way too much time on a complex question. Initially skipping over the most challenging questions can be helpful with this because it limits the chances your student will get bogged down on a tricky question early on in the test.

Practice tests can also be a useful diagnostic tool for your student. Once they've completed a practice assessment, their instructor can provide feedback on what areas they're already strong in and which topics they need to focus more attention on. Taking a series of practice tests can also act as a confidence booster as your student can track their progress over time.

It is common for students to feel anxious before taking an important exam. Some of this anxiety could stem from uncertainty about what they could face on test day. Taking practice exams can help with this because they can get more familiar with the types of questions they might encounter and the general layout of the test.

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

Finding time to study outside of a classroom setting can represent a significant challenge. You and your student may have work, family, and school responsibilities that fill up most of your schedules. But this shouldn't stop you from getting your student the help they need as private instruction provides both convenience and flexibility.

You can sign your student up for either online or in-person Detroit ACT tutoring. One of the benefits of signing your student up for online instruction is that you don't have to worry about how you're going to get your student to their study sessions. They can interact with their private instructor over video chat from any location with an internet connection, such as from the Campbell Branch of the Detroit Public Library.

In addition, your student can collaborate with their academic mentor on a virtual whiteboard and shared documents on our Live Learning Platform. These features allow your student's instructor to observe live as they solve problems. Thus, if your student runs into any problems, it's easy for their instructor to see where they went wrong and help them understand what they should do differently in the future.
