How can a tutor help you master the ACT?

Applying to college marks an exciting new chapter in a student's educational journey. Though it's an exciting time, it's often also overwhelming. Students have to worry about completing all of the necessary paperwork, student loans, and college visits. The process is made even more complicated when you factor in the American College Testing (ACT). Students are often required to submit their ACT scores with their college applications. The score a student receives on the ACT can have a significant impact on their chances of being accepted into the schools of their choice. That's why it's so important that students prepare ahead of time for the exam. Fortunately, students don't have to study for the SAT on their own. If you're getting ready to take the ACT, consider partnering with a personal ACT tutor. They could help you develop the skills and confidence you need to potentially improve on test day. Varsity Tutors can assist students in connecting with a tutor in Tacoma, WA, who could potentially help them understand the concepts of the ACT.

A professional ACT tutor in Tacoma, WA, can create study sessions to try to help you make the most of your abilities to excel on your exam. Part of what makes one-on-one ACT tutoring so successful is that the entire experience is completely customizable. Your ACT tutor will come to every session with an arsenal of test-taking strategies and resources, and ultimately you get to choose the ones that work best with your learning style. Your tutor will tailor their approach to what works best for you, ensuring that you're studying for the ACT in the most efficient and effective way possible.

Session Summaries by ACT Tutors

Tacoma, WA ACT tutoring
Today the student and I went through an entire science section and checked our answers. We also did half a section of reading and about a third of a section of math. He seemed to be picking up on many of the common math themes quicker than before.

We started by going over the writing and science sections that he had done before we met today. He only got a handful wrong on each section. We talked about each at length to help avoid the pitfalls each one presented. We ended with a bunch of practice math questions. He will work on completing the English and Math section for next week.

We used online ACT practice questions to review Reading and Science sections. She is struggling with reading comprehension and has some difficulties with data analysis, but showed improvement over the hour spent on Science. I instructed her to underline and look up the definition for every word she reads that she doesn't know for the next week, acknowledging how annoying this assignment is. We've agreed to meet again on Tuesday.

Today, the student and I went over SAT math. We spent the beginning of the session going over questions he had gotten wrong or skipped in the assigned practice section. Then, we covered two more sections. He generally understands most of the math sections but sometimes has issues avoiding small mistakes. We went over strategies (like reviewing completed work) to avoid this. I assigned him work for our next session.
