ACT English Tutoring Near Me
Today we focused on the English section again to allow the student to have more practice and increase his speed. We worked on several passages so that he could familiarize himself with the types of questions. The student needs to practice a lot more so that he can work faster because now he is averaging about 8-10 minutes per passage. We worked on the Math section as well, and he seems to do quite well on time there. We also need to review some geometry concepts.

Today was the student's first session. We began by looking over her answers for a practice English test she had taken prior to our meeting. As we went over her incorrect answers, I outlined a strategy I find very useful. The first step is to identify the concept the question is testing (i.e. grammar rules, paragraph organization, etc.). The next step is to eliminate two answers and choose an answer from the remaining two. The student seemed to like to this strategy and was able to incorporate it into the rest of our session. For our next session, I asked that she complete another English practice test using the strategy I showed her. She seems very capable and eager to learn as much as she can. I am confident that we can get her to a score that she'll be proud of.

Great first session with the student today! She is very bright and was sharp and attentive while I reviewed the whole English section of the first practice test with her. After that, we went through the reading passages section while I showed her an efficient method to approach it.

The student and I began by discussing some general ACT prep to help him when it gets closer to his next test date. We then moved on to his challenge area, the English section, explaining all of the different question types and how to approach them. I assigned a short practice set for him to complete before our next session.

Once students reach high school, they must begin planning for college. Along with participating in extracurriculars and keeping up with everyday classwork, it's a wise idea to consider getting ahead on preparation for college admissions tests, like the ACT. As each student progresses in his or her review, areas in which he or she may need extra help may be revealed. If your high school student could use guidance in ACT English prep, get in touch with Varsity Tutors. We can help you find a qualified professional with experience in high school ACT English tutoring who can work with your student.

The ACT is one of the most widely used criteria of college admissions boards, and covers English, math, reading, and science, with an optional writing section. The English section of the ACT consists of 75 multiple-choice questions covering five passages, and students have 45 minutes to complete the section. Students must choose the answers which correct the errors in each passage's underlined sections. The questions cover a variety of English concepts, including:

  • Sentence structure
  • Rhetorical skills
  • Mechanics and usage

These three topics cover ideas from the simple to complex, and it's easy for students to get lost in the minutiae when they study alone. With personal ACT English tutoring, your child gets to work with a tutor who can tailor each session to work efficiently toward your child's goals. If your student is already confident in the mechanics of apostrophe, comma, and colon usage, he or she can move along to working on other issues, like fine-tuning skills in clarity, brevity, and organization.
