How can a tutor help you master the ACT?

As you prepare for the next step of your academic career -- college -- you must also prepare for college readiness assessment tests like the ACT. This can be a very stressful time, but Varsity Tutors can help. Varsity Tutors can assist you in finding an experienced ACT tutor in Boston, Massachusetts. Your tutor understands that this exam falls in a time in a student's life that is stressful and busy. That is why your tutor can work with you at a time and place that fits best into your hectic schedule. You can even work with your tutor online or in person.

A private Boston ACT tutor can help guide you through the massive amounts of ACT resources and practice books and exams that are available. Together, you can design a custom study plan and determine which areas require the most focus. Unlike large study groups or test prep courses, a private tutor can work with you one-on-one, allowing for plenty of time for your questions to be answered and for an evaluation of your personal ACT needs. A course or study group will not allow for skipping whole sections of the exam; your tutor can allow this. If you and your tutor feel you are completely capable on certain sections, you may decide to skip them to allow for more time to be spent on the topics with which you are not as confident. Perhaps you excel at grammar but struggle with coordinate geometry. Your sessions can focus on the math portion of the exam, and your tutor can even narrow down the math section to the areas that cause the most confusion.

Session Summaries by ACT Tutors

Boston, MA ACT tutoring
The student had a full test that we went over. Some of the sections she had done previously, and she was able to answer most of them correctly this time around, which is a great sign of progress. We spent some time going over vocabulary words and strategies for building that on her own time in the next week, by using online flashcards.

We went over basic test strategies and format, then did several sets of practice questions. The student seems to have good pacing and strong content skills. The section she had most trouble with was the math, which is what we'll be focusing on during our next session. We also discussed how to make and use effective flashcards, and got started on a set covering root words, to help with the sentence completion and critical reading section.

Today we worked on the ACT English section and math section. We were able to recognize different patterns that the English section utilizes, such as really focusing on whether a singular or plural pronoun needs to be used. With the math, we worked on common techniques and formulas that are used. Trigonometry will be an area that we will practice more.

The student and I got started by discussing his past ACT results and a little bit of general strategy for pacing during the tests. We then began with his main area of difficulty, the ACT English test, studying grammar skills, particularly those relating to completeness of ideas. The student is already showing signs of improved understanding.

As this was our first meting I spent 1/2 of the time going over basic ACT test taking tips and tricks. I also walked the student through her practice test scores. We then looked at math for the next part, because most of the student's mistakes there were a quick fix, most of them tend to be either dropping a sign or inputting the data into the calculator wrong.
