As you've no doubt discovered during your years of studying English, it's one of the most complex languages in the world, in large part because of the multitude of words that can mean the same thing and the fact that so many words have two or more meanings or spellings. So why is ACT English tutoring such a great option? Simple: it allows you to go over the nuances and aspects of the ACT that you're comfortable with in a no-pressure situation, and it allows you to focus on the areas where you need some additional work.

Online ACT English Tutoring review by Tarana
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.

Online ACT English Tutoring review by Patrick
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.

Online ACT English Tutoring review by Hillary
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.

Online ACT English Tutoring review by Joseph
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.

Practice ACT English test - discussion of incorrect answers. He scored a 21 on his first time through, a 25 with the chance to go back and correct hard ones. Will start another practice test tomorrow.

Online ACT English Tutoring review by Chris
Reviewed grammar and organization of one of her SAT essays. Discussed strategies for generating appropriate examples to support thesis in response to typical essay prompts. We practiced outlining and composing opening of essays on a few prompts. I assigned HW of two prompts, create opening arguments with preview of examples, both for and against. Also, assigned reading and highlight importance ideas.

If you're hoping to improve your chances of doing well on the ACT, Varsity Tutors can connect you to exceptional ACT English tutoring opportunities. For students wanting to attend a university or college, the ACT is one of the first obstacles you'll face. The ACT is accepted as a part of the admissions process at most colleges in the United States. The ACT is taken by over two million students each year so you'll want to make every effort to earn the best possible ACT score so you can set yourself apart from other applicants. Varsity Tutors has the ability to set you up with an instructor who has taken the ACT successfully and can help you prepare by explaining the content and format of the exam so you know what to expect.

Whether you've already been preparing or you are just getting started with ACT prep, we can connect you to ACT English instructors who are a good fit for your specific skill level.

English is one of the most challenging languages in the world. This is due partly because of the vast number of words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings. If you are one of the many students who sometimes struggle with the complex rules of the English language and its many exceptions, working with experienced ACT English tutors can be beneficial. Private instruction would give you the chance to review any aspects or nuances of English you need further help in understanding. No matter what skills you're hoping to get assistance with, Varsity Tutors is here to support you as you work towards your particular ACT goals.

What skills and content can an ACT English tutor go over to help me prepare for the exam?

No matter what your current skill level is when it comes to English, working with an ACT English tutor can help you improve your knowledge of the topics found on the ACT English section. For example, your instructor can assist you in reviewing proper sentence structure, word usage, and punctuation. Perhaps you need to brush up on your grammar skills. This is an area you can practice with a top-notch ACT English instructor.

Other topics you may want to practice in order to do well on the ACT English section are the ability to identify different parts of a passage and their intended purpose. You may also want to practice being able to form coherent sentences and the ability to use various strategies to organize your wording to increased clarity. Your instructor can also help you work on making good word choices in order to make effective use of the language.

Your instructor can also assist you and understanding the different types of questions you'll find on the English section of the ACT. This section assesses you on three distinct content areas: Production of Writing, Knowledge of Language, and Conventions of Standard English. By taking practice exams, you and your teacher can gain an understanding of how well you do on each type of question. This can help you come up with a strategy to help you reach for your best possible ACT English score. For example, if you score particularly well on one type of question but only earned an average score on the other two, you can decide to stop reviewing the easier skill and focus on the improving your understanding of the other two. Alternately, you can decide to work harder on the skill you excel in, hoping to use this part of the exam to boost your overall score. Whichever strategy you and your instructor come up with can be beneficial as you work towards gaining confidence in your abilities.

Your ACT English tutoring sessions can also assist you in working on time management skills. The English section of the exam consists of 75 questions that you must finish within 45 minutes. This means you don't even have a full minute to answer each question. This means you have a lot of information to process in a short amount of time. If this type of exam is unfamiliar to you, this can be a daunting task. Working with a quality ACT English tutor can make all the difference. You'll have the opportunity to work on practice exams with your instructor in an environment that simulates the types of conditions you will face on exam day. This will give you an accurate picture of how quickly you are able to finish the questions and how many questions you are able to get correct at that speed. As you work through practice exams under the supervision of your instructor, he or she can assist you in identifying which types of questions you may be spending too much time on and where you can speed up in order to improve your pacing.

Additionally, your ACT instructor can help you work on strategies such as the process of elimination in order to make an educated guess. With 75 questions to answer, most students simply won't have the time to choose an answer that they are entirely confident about for each question. For some questions, you'll need to make a guess so that you can move on. Since there is no penalty for wrong answers, it is important to make sure you answer each question. If you're unsure of an answer, it's better to guess than to leave it blank. Practicing the process of elimination can assist you in improving your odds of determining the best answer quickly and accurately. This can help improve your chances of scoring well as you work through the exam.

How is ACT English tutoring different from other educational settings?

Working with private ACT English tutors is a very different experience than one might find in a traditional educational setting. With a private instructor, you have the opportunity to receive one-on-one, personalized instruction. In traditional classrooms, teachers must create lesson plans while keeping a large number of students in mind. Your ACT instructor can take the time to determine your particular academic strengths, the areas in which you need improvement, and your preferred learning method. With these traits in mind, your instructor can create customized lesson plans catered to suit your exact needs. For example, if it turns out you are a visual learner, your instructor can make sure to utilize videos or infographics as a means of allowing you to see the information in a new visual manner. If you are an auditory learner, your instructor may choose to use a lecture format for study sessions or assign various ACT podcasts for you to listen to. Perhaps you're a kinesthetic learner. If this is the case, your instructor can assist you by creating various hands-on activities. When you're able to learn in a way that makes sense to you, it makes learning more enjoyable and helps you to understand the material more thoroughly. Working with a private instructor also gives you the opportunity to receive immediate feedback while you're working through practice questions. This can help you to gain confidence in your abilities and aid you in determining which types of questions you need to work harder on.

Thanks to Varsity Tutors, you have the ability to schedule online tutoring sessions or meet your instructor in person. If you select the online option, you'll be able to attend your study sessions using our Live Learning Platform. This unique online learning environment brings private instruction to you where you are, as long as you have access to high-speed internet and a computer. When you choose to meet in person, we will do our best to set you up with the right tutor to work within your established schedule. You can elect to meet with your instructor at your favorite coffee shop, in the public library, or in the comfort of your own home. You can set these sessions up for any time of the day, such as in the morning over breakfast, during a study hall, or on the weekend so you don't miss after-school activities. These options make it simple to arrange private tutoring.

What do I need to do to sign up to work with private ACT English tutors?

The ACT is an essential step for students hoping to gain entrance to the college or university of their choice. Although the process can seem overwhelming, when you work with an ACT English coach, you'll be able to learn how to break down the information into smaller and more manageable parts. No matter what you need to learn or your current skill level, we are here to support you as you work towards your ACT goals.
