Varsity Tutors can help you find skilled Houston ACT tutors who can help your student make the most of their test preparation efforts. The ACT is one of the most commonly used college admissions exams in the United States. It is only administered six times each year and covers all of the information deemed essential for incoming first-year college students. Continue reading to learn more about how private Houston ACT tutoring can benefit your student.

What are some of the skills Houston ACT tutors near me can cover?

The sections of the ACT include Math, Reading, English, Science, and an optional Writing section. Whether you need help preparing for an individual component of the ACT or you want to review each section, Houston ACT tutors can help you work toward your learning goals.

To help you prepare for the Math portion of the ACT, your instructor can help you with functions, solving and modeling expressions, numerical reasoning, distributions, data collection, and more.

Some of the Reading skills Houston ACT tutoring sessions can help you with include summarizing ideas, general reading comprehension, identifying themes and central concepts, making connections between different reading selections, and more.

During the Science portion of the ACT, your understanding of the Scientific Method and ability to analyze and manipulate different forms of data in the fields of biology, earth science, chemistry, and physics will be evaluated. Your instructor can help you work through different types of problems and concepts in preparation for the exam.

The English section of the ACT is designed to assess your understanding and mastery of the technical skills required to communicate effectively in the English language. This can include grammar, sentence structure, punctuations, topic development, and more. If you're not comfortable with the more technical aspects of language, working with a private instructor can help.

If you choose to participate in the Writing portion of the ACT, you will respond to an essay prompt. While this portion of the exam is not part of the overall score, it will be sent to any universities who receive your ACT score and may play a role in determining admissions eligibility.

Private instructors aren't limited to working with your student on the subject area content covered in the ACT. In fact, for many students, one of the most challenging aspects of standardized testing is that the sections have time limitations. For example, in the Math portion of the exam, your student will only have 60 minutes to answer 60 multiple-choice questions. In both the Reading and Science portions of the exam, they will have 35 minutes to answer 40 questions.

When students must answer questions within a limited amount of time, it's imperative they have a variety of testing strategies to rely upon. Their instructor can help them develop skills to help them eliminate multiple-choice answers more effectively and to manage their time, so they aren't spending too much or too little time on each item.

What are some of the benefits of Houston ACT tutoring?

Perhaps the most important benefit of working with skilled Houston ACT tutors is the personalization of the sessions. As your student worked their way through their academic endeavors, they likely had to move at a regimented pace through each subject regardless of how well they understood each concept. There is little time in a typical classroom to go back and review material that isn't fully understood. While that can be overcome in most instances, it can lead to knowledge gaps that only become apparent when students engage in a standardized exam.

Private Houston ACT tutoring sessions are focused entirely on the needs of your student. If they need to work only on one English concept and spend the rest of the time reviewing Math topics, that's how their sessions can be designed.

It isn't just the content of the sessions that can be customized. The way in which material is presented to your student is also customized to meet their learning style and preferences. Some students learn better when the material is presented verbally while others need to work through multiple examples in a variety of ways before they are able to internalize the information. Regardless of how your student learns best, their instructor can develop personalized sessions around their learning needs.

Finally, your student will have the undivided attention of their instructor. They can ask questions at any point and receive answers instantly. This makes each session even more powerful because it allows your student to be completely in control of the learning process. Many times students don't know where their knowledge gaps are. As they work through information in preparation of the test, they may have sudden realizations that they are missing key information. Since they are the only person in the session, their concerns can be immediately addressed.

Is Houston ACT tutoring convenient?

The score your student receives on their ACT can have a major impact on which universities they have the opportunity to attend. It's important for them to have access to high-quality test preparation. Unfortunately, many students find it difficult to find convenient Houston ACT tutoring options.

Varsity Tutors believes that all students deserve access to the support they need to work towards their ACT scoring goals which is why we created our Live Learning Platform. This online learning space makes it easy for students to connect with experienced Houston ACT tutors no matter where they are. All they need when it's time to begin a session is access to the internet and a digital device. Students can choose to work with their instructor at home or in public settings such as the Looscan Neighborhood Library. Once they log in to their session, your student will quickly be face-to-face with their instructor.

Within the Live Learning Platform, there are several features that make it easy for them to work with Houston ACT tutors. The digital whiteboard makes it easy for instructors to work through math problems, provide reading samples, or include practice problems. A shared document editor allows students to practice writing responses while receiving real-time feedback from their instructor. Finally, all sessions are recorded so students can go back and review concepts and techniques again independently.

Since students are working with their instructor online, there is no additional time commitment needed for commuting to and from sessions. Learning in a virtual setting also increases the number of instructors available to work with your student, which makes it easier to find convenient session times. Whether your student needs to work with someone during the week or on the weekend, Varsity Tutors can help you connect with Houston ACT tutors who are available for morning, afternoon, or evening sessions.
