Memphis ACT Tutoring FAQ

Varsity Tutors can connect students who are getting ready to take the ACT with the best Memphis ACT tutors, who can use their knowledge of the ins and outs of the exam to help you study for the test. The ACT covers a broad swatch of high school subjects, and it can be tough to know how to begin preparing. Memphis ACT tutoring can structure your test review and lead you through a comprehensive study of ACT subjects.

What are the advantages of studying with Memphis ACT tutors near me?

Traditional classroom instruction has its drawbacks. When teachers are dealing with a group of students they have to use one-size-fits-all teaching methods that aren't always the best for each individual student. They also have to stick to a strict classroom schedule that can result in students being required to move on to new material before they feel comfortable with the subject that they're currently studying, or, conversely, to continue rehashing topics that they've already come to terms with.

This can be particularly relevant when it comes to a test like the ACT, which requires you to study a wide range of concepts in subjects as far afield as math, reading, and science. It's likely that you're better prepared for some parts of the test than for others, and unfocused study can result in wasted and misdirected uses of time.

Memphis ACT tutoring, on the other hand, doesn't have these restrictions. Your unique needs can dictate the focus of your study time. Memphis ACT tutors can take a look at your current level of preparedness and come up with a plan that addresses your strengths and weaknesses. If you're a math whiz who's not worried in the least about the math section, but who's concerned about their ability to compose an essay on short notice, to give one example, your tutor can place the emphasis on writing drills and show you how you can alter your writing techniques to perform better on the test.

Memphis ACT tutors can take your personal learning style into account, too. Many students find certain teaching methods to be particularly effective - some prefer visually oriented instruction, for instance, while others do better with auditory instruction or hands-on practice. Memphis ACT tutoring can offer a tailored approach that suits you, so if you're an auditory learner they can engage you in discussion-based lessons that involve back-and-forth conversation about ACT subjects. Meanwhile, if you're more of a visual student, they can use flashcards, flowcharts, diagrams, and other forms of visual instruction to make sure you're receiving information in a format that makes sense to you.

What kinds of skills can Memphis ACT tutors help me work on?

The ACT is split into four sections, or five if you're taking the ACT Plus Writing. These are as follows: Math, Science, Reading, Writing, and the optional Writing segment. The Math section will require you to show a well-rounded understanding of high school-level mathematics, from algebra to geometry to trigonometry. Memphis ACT tutors can help you review concepts like numerical reasoning, data analysis, the properties of geometric shapes and how to apply calculations to them, and much more. They can advise you on how to quickly identify and eliminate incorrect answers, which can save you precious time on the exam. You'll have 60 minutes to answer 60 questions in the Science section.

The Science section covers physical sciences like physics, biology, chemistry, and Earth science, and asks students to show their ability to apply the scientific method and read and understand tables of data. Here you'll have 35 minutes to answer 40 questions on the manipulation of scientific information, the use of tools and procedures, and more. While the idea of being tested on the enormous number of equations and vast oceans of knowledge involved in scientific study may be intimidating, Memphis ACT tutoring can show you how most of the time a solid grasp on the underlying principles of scientific inquiry is more important for success on the ACT than specific scientific knowledge.

The Reading and English sections resemble each other to some degree, but they have different focuses. The Reading section will ask you to answer 40 questions in 35 minutes, and is intended to test students on their critical analysis skills and their reading comprehension, so you'll be asked to identify the themes and subtexts of passages, comment on the relationships between different passages, differentiate between fact and opinion, and the like. The English section places its emphasis on stylistic concerns, like authorial voice and tone, grammatical usage, the cohesion of writing, and so on. The English section lasts 45 minutes, in which time you'll have to respond to 75 questions. Memphis ACT tutors can prepare you for these sections by reading through ACT-style written passages alongside you, posing sample questions, and pointing out the kinds of details that you should be reading for on the ACT, or common rhetorical tricks you should watch out for when reading questions.

Last, the Writing section. If you're taking the ACT Plus Writing you'll have 40 minutes to compose a response to an essay prompt. You'll be given a specified issue to write about, as well as three perspectives on that issue. You'll have to read through this material and then write a response stating your own perspective and placing it in conversation with the three provided viewpoints. The extemporaneous composition can be a challenge, but Memphis ACT tutors can teach you relaxation techniques that you can use to keep your cool and stay focused. They can also assist you in developing the ability to quickly outline an essay, so you can get used to coming up with well-developed ideas on the fly.
