Dedicated Private ACT Reading Tutoring

Varsity Tutors will find you an experienced ACT Reading tutor in as little as 24 hours. We understand that between your classes, getting ready to apply to college, and your responsibilities around the house, you don't have as much free time as you might like.

Our exclusive Live Learning Platform allows you to meet your instructor anywhere with a reliable internet connection, so you don't have to worry about a commute. Here are some of the benefits of our platform:

  • Compatible with most mobile devices
  • Integrated practice problems facilitate collaborative work
  • Video chat allows you to see and hear your instructor
  • Virtual whiteboard makes it easier for you to take notes
  • Study sessions are recorded automatically for future reference
  • Boost Your ACT Reading Score

    The ACT's Reading section consists of 40 multiple-choice questions over just 35 minutes, meaning that you have to work quickly. An ACT Reading tutor can encourage you to read the questions before their corresponding passage so that you know exactly what information to look for.

    Best Ways To Prep For the ACT Reading Section

    We know that there are a lot of test prep solutions on the market, but a live instructor is unique in that they can create a study plan for your specific needs. If you struggle to distinguish between fact and opinion, your instructor can emphasize the differences until it clicks.

    If you're more comfortable defining unfamiliar words using context clues, your instructor can concentrate on other aspects of the exam to improve your study efficiency. Software-based test prep is typically tied to a set curriculum without the same flexibility to adapt to any individual student's unique needs.

    How much does an ACT Reading tutor cost?

    The price of ACT Reading tutoring depends on several different things, including how often you meet your instructor and the specific concepts you'd like to review. For example, you may be charged a different rate for a generic overview of exam topics than you would be for an in-depth tutorial on how to connect one text to another.

    Varsity Tutors also provides a live ACT Reading class if you're interested in studying with other students, and we can arrange group ACT Reading tutoring if you like. Contact us online or by phone to discuss each of these options in further detail.

    How do I choose an ACT Reading tutor?

    Varsity Tutors maintains an extensive database filled with well-vetted instructors, allowing our Educational Directors to plug in what you're looking for and find you a qualified instructor quickly. We actively look for instructors who understand how to identify and address the root cause of any learning obstacles, so your instructor can tackle the problem at its source instead of trying to control its effects.

    Likewise, your instructor will be a certified expert in everything ACT Reading who can answer any questions you have in a timely fashion.

    Are ACT Reading tutors worth it?

    Independent studies suggest that working with a private tutor can improve a student's performance on high school exit exams such as the ACT by 11-12 percent, a huge increase considering how competitive the college applications process can get. Furthermore, research reveals that high-achievers are just as likely to benefit from private tutoring as their peers.

    Online ACT Reading Tutoring review by Joseph
    My assessment of the student's second ACT writing practice prompt resulted in a score of 5, and the practice reading passages he completed only had 2 incorrect answers out of 20. We continued discussing strategies to help his reference skills after that.

    Online ACT Reading Tutoring review by Tarana
    Today we heavily focused on the ACT Reading section. We spent time using ACT notes online to learn about more test-taking strategies and practice with the specific types of questions like details, character inferences, plot inferences, vocabulary, main idea, and comparisons. We found that the student has trouble with inferences and main ideas because those questions require him to go back and reread the passage. We also went through the four different types of stories on the test and found which ones were the easiest and most challenging. As of now, he seems to be doing the best on Natural Science passages and Social Sciences. We went over his new ACT score from a test he took a few weeks ago and he has shown improvement. We will focus primarily on Reading and Science for the next couple of sessions.

    Online ACT Reading Tutoring review by Shannon
    The student and I discussed strategies for the reading section and worked through a full reading section passage by passage, identifying common errors. She often doesn't read a question carefully enough and had several wrong answers because an answer was *mostly* right but hinged on one wrong word. We focused on those and on how to avoid that pitfall. We also spent a little bit of time on English just identifying the most commonly identified grammar errors in that section. We will be working on the SAT tomorrow.

    Online ACT Reading Tutoring review by Chelci
    Reviewed grammar topics and learned about relative clauses and that they are NOT complete sentences all alone, took a practice English test. Reviewed reading topics, discussed the need to get not just a correct answer, but the best answer.

    Online ACT Reading Tutoring review by Lee
    I assigned the student half of a practice test, the reading and science sections. We went through the reading section together, and we worked on the proper type of focus one must have when doing this section. She is showing improvement on the science section and also on math.

    Online ACT Reading Tutoring review by Samuel
    The student and I worked on three entry exam sections yesterday- Reading, English, and Math. This was the first time we had looked at the Reading section and it appears that it may be the most challenging for him. The main challenge in this section will be time management. We will have to focus on learning how to read quickly and efficiently. By retaining the crucial parts of a passage the first time it is read, he will be able to answer a lot more questions without losing time by going back and rereading. I assigned a few passages for him to try with a time limit. I also assigned more Math and English section problems, also timed as well.
