Private In-Home and Online ACT Tutoring

Receive personally tailored ACT lessons from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting. We help you connect with in-home and online tutoring that offers flexible scheduling and your choice of locations.

If you're looking to find some extra help for you or your student in the process of preparing for the ACT, Varsity Tutors can put you in touch with highly qualified Louisville ACT tutors. The ACT is one of the major college admission exams in the U.S., typically taken in a high school student's junior year but available to both sophomores and seniors as well. It's meant to assess college readiness and can be incredibly challenging, making adequate preparation essential. Our educational consultants can provide additional information on how private instruction can help and how you can get the process started.

How can Louisville ACT tutors near me help me study for the exam?

One of the most difficult parts about preparing for the ACT is the scope of the material you need to review. There are four sections on the exam: Reading, English, Math, and Science. In the Reading and English sections, the questions are more conceptual in nature. There is no specific material you can prepare for; instead, you will be asked to apply certain concepts and theories to material that has been selected for that particular iteration of the exam.

The Math and Science sections are different. The Math section, for example, covers pre-algebra, elementary and intermediate algebra, trigonometry, and coordinate and plane geometry. The Science section covers biology, chemistry, Earth/space sciences, and physics. Depending on where you are in school and what your interests are, you may or may not have recently been exposed to these topics.

The best Louisville ACT tutors can provide a thorough review of these materials on both a conceptual and granular level. When it comes to the Reading and English sections, they can offer sample material and assess your ability to apply the concepts you'll be tested on, determining where you need to put in the most work. To prepare for the math section, they can offer up practice questions to determine which subjects are your strongest and weakest. For the Science section, where memory is arguably the most important, they can over a cursory overview before identifying the areas where you need more thorough coverage.

While you might be tempted to say you don't need this particular kind of preparation, a material review with Louisville ACT tutoring can benefit anyone, regardless of where you are in the preparation process. Even if you feel like you're ready to go, the review can refresh your memory, putting all the details at the front of your mind just before you take the test, improving recall. If, however, it turns out you weren't as prepared as you thought, the review gives you a chance to identify your blind spots and work with maximum efficiency to get up to speed.

Louisville ACT tutors can also help you prepare for the actual structure of the exam, which is the other major challenge associated with the exam. The standard version of the exam is 2 hours and 55 minutes long, though there is an option to take an additional Writing section, which adds 40 minutes to the test run time. All questions are multiple-choice, with the exception of the writing section, which features one essay question. At first glance, this might seem pretty standard. However, the pressure of a ticking clock and high stakes means preparing for the wrapping of the exam can only help your performance.

Louisville ACT tutors can aid in this preparation in a few ways. First, they can get you comfortable with the phrasing you're likely to encounter on the exam. This might seem trivial, but even if you know the material backward and forward, the smartest student can get tripped up by confusing questions. Knowing what to expect when you crack the exam's spine can help you pace yourself and boost your confidence.

Second, they can teach you strategies that can impact your performance, like different ways of dissecting questions you don't know the answer to right away or time management techniques that keep you from running out of time before you can get through all the questions. Finally, they can administer practice exams. This last piece of the equation is important because it gives you a chance to get a feel for what it's like to tackle the various groupings of questions within their individual section's time constraints.

What are the benefits associated with Louisville ACT tutoring?

A significant benefit of Louisville ACT tutoring is that you get one-on-one time with an expert. Louisville ACT tutors are vetted by Varsity Tutors to make sure they know the test and the material like the back of their hand. They also are evaluated as communicators to ensure they're able to impart this knowledge effectively. During your sessions together, you'll have their undivided attention and the ability to ask questions as they come to you, clarifying points of confusion and building comprehension as you go.

Louisville ACT tutoring can be customized to your academic needs. When you're working out of a preparation book, you're limited to the material in front of you and whatever an internet search yields. When you're in a preparation class, the teacher is limited by the curriculum and the fact that they have to cater to a group of twenty or more students, meaning they can't just speed up or slow down because it suits one individual student. Louisville ACT tutors can do just that. There's no reason to waste time on a topic you already understand, and if you need a little longer on a topic than originally expected to really understand it, then that's what will happen. The only goal in these sessions is to set you up for success.

Another benefit of Louisville ACT tutoring is that tactics can be tailored to your learning preferences. Research has found that we engage more and retain more information when our preferences are taken into account. The individual nature of these sessions means your tutor can take the time to get to know you and weave these preferences into their approach. If you're a competitive person by nature, they can find ways to challenge you directly in order to motivate you, like timed exams with associated reward tiers. If you're someone who learns best through repetition, Louisville ACT tutors can lean on tools like flashcards to improve your recall. The ability to customize sessions is something that isn't accessible in most conventional classrooms.

ACT Tutoring review by Lauren in Louisville, KY
The student and I talked about the ACT Reading section, the types of passages and types of questions. The student had a really positive attitude and was eager to learn both strategy and content. I left the student with an assignment in the ACT prep book and some practice tests. I talked about identifying which type of questions were easy and which were hard or time consuming, and how to answer each type.

ACT Tutoring review by Jeanne in Louisville, KY
The student and I went through a thorough overview of the ACT science section. She did a variety of problems, covering physics, chemistry, biology, and natural sciences. I incorporated multiple types of questions, such as opposing viewpoints, data analysis and interpretation, and inferences. She seemed to take really well to these concepts, and I think we are well on our way to her goal. She will take a practice section of the ACT science before our next session, and we will work on math during our next session.

ACT Tutoring review by Micaela in Louisville, KY
The student and I looked at some Critical Reading problems she's expressed worry about. We concentrated on tone and perspective, as well as context-dependent sentences. She picks up quickly, and once she has a strategy, she generally improves. I asked her to start doing timed CR tests in advance of the April test.

ACT Tutoring review by Manasi in Louisville, KY
For this lesson, the student and I first went over the timed English section that she had completed. She only got 5 or 6 wrong for a scaled score of 32, which is a big improvement from her diagnostic. Next, we completed the math section from last time, and I can see definite improvement in her understanding of various math concepts, though math is still her most challenging area. Lastly, we worked through a science section, and she got most of the questions correct and did well with the strategies I told her about. For the next lesson, she will work on a timed Science section, practice more with the math, and work on an essay.

ACT Tutoring review by Michael in Louisville, KY
On this practice test, The student got a 30 composite (30/27/29/32), which is an improvement from before. After we reviewed the questions he missed, I suggested that he use a watch to help him with pacing during the test and also that he take a little more time on the English section to read the question and pay attention to the NOT questions. In the remaining time, we made sure that he knew the general math concepts that would be on the ACT. We covered all of the Pre-Algebra sections, and I explained the general formula of a circle, Least common multiple and greatest common denominator through prime factorization, divisibility rules for numbers, rules of exponents, general tips to make working with fractions quicker, and how odds work within probability.

ACT Tutoring review by Brian in Louisville, KY
I am very excited about the student's progress so far. He has made big strides in the reading and English sections of the test. We will continue to work on the timing of these sections and practice to keep them strong. The student's biggest area where we need to work is on the science section, as this is the hardest section to time and can be difficult. We will continue to work on this and get better. We spent some time on math as well, which we'll also keep progressing on, although I feel pretty good about where he's at right now.
