If you are looking to start your Omaha ACT prep, Varsity Tutors can help you out. There are many options available for students in the Omaha area who are studying for the ACT. It is important to prepare properly for this exam. Many students in area high schools, such as Creighton Preparatory School and Millard North High School, opt to take the ACT as their college preparation test of choice. It is one of two possible options.

Studying with a professional, either in a class or during private one-on-one tutoring sessions, is a great way to make sure that you are as prepared as you can be for the ACT. Colleges look at your scores on the ACT to determine whether you will be a good fit for their programs and whether you are a serious student. Your scores can show whether or not you will be able to keep up with the pace of studying that is expected of students at that particular college, and how well you paid attention during your high school classes.

What should I cover during my ACT preparation?

The ACT has four sections. In total, you will have two hours and 55 minutes to complete all of the sections, not including any breaks. The four sections are Math, Reading, English, and Science. There is a fifth section, Writing, but this section is optional.

The Math section will take 60 minutes. It will have 60 questions. Problems will touch upon issues that you should have learned up to the beginning of the twelfth grade. You will be tested on various math topics, such as algebra, trigonometry, and geometry.

The Reading section will take 35 minutes. There will be 40 questions. You will be presented with various reading materials. The level of the reading materials will be more or less on the same level as you what can expect during your first year of college. You will be tested on your ability to properly comprehend the reading material and answer questions based on the passages presented to you.

The English section will take 45 minutes. You will have a lot of questions on this section - 75 in total. Again, you will be presented with passages and multiple choice questions. However, here you will be tested on your knowledge of the English language. Your writing skills will be measured as well, as you will be tested on how well you can correct sentence structure and choose the answer with the proper grammatical structure and spelling.

The Science section will take 35 minutes. You will have 40 questions to answer. You will again be presented with passages, this time on scientific topics. You will also be presented with various viewpoints or perspectives on the issue. You will then have to write your own response, which should contain your own perspective in a way that is related to at least one of the three perspectives provided to you.

Finally, there is the Writing section, which is optional. You will have 40 minutes to complete this section. Again, you will be presented with a prompt, along with three different perspectives on the issue. Again, you must write your own response, which must contain your own perspective as it relates to one of the provided perspectives. Here, you will be tested on your writing skills.

What kind of Omaha ACT prep should I choose?

We mentioned that there are two options when it comes to preparing for your ACT. You can opt to take an Omaha ACT prep class, for one. There is a new class starting every week. You will not have to wait long to start. Your class can go on for either two or four weeks, depending on how much preparation you feel you need.

You will take your Omaha ACT prep course online, in an online setting. This gives you the ability to take courses from the comfort of your own home. At the same time, you get the opportunity to interact with the other students, as well as the instructor. You can take the course on the weekends, the weekdays, or whenever you have free time. These courses provide an excellent opportunity to review all of the sections of the test. Learning with other students allows you to share ideas and help each other out. You can also get some private time with the instructor to ask any questions about things that you missed during the courses.

Another option is reviewing the ACT with the help of an Omaha ACT tutor. A private educational mentor can study with you privately. This gives you a lot of flexibility as you can schedule these sessions at any time of the day. You can schedule as many or as few sessions as you would like. In addition, you have flexibility when it comes to the location as well. A private mentor can come to your home to study with you so that you do not have to spend time commuting.

With private mentoring, you can study at a pace that feels comfortable for you. Some students may find that they need more help for the Math section than the Reading section. It all depends on your individual needs. A private instructor can focus on the areas in which you need help the most. You can develop a rapport with your mentor, and this can help you look forward to your mentoring sessions.

Of course, a third option is doing a combination of the above two options. One possible strategy would be to take a two-week or four-week course in order to make sure that you review all of the four or five subjects. Then, you can get private instructional sessions in order to focus on the specific areas with which you need additional help.
