If your student is currently preparing to take the ACT and they need a little extra help, Varsity Tutors can set them up with Ann Arbor ACT tutoring. The ACT is a standardized test often taken by high school students between their junior and senior years. It is used in college admissions throughout the United States, and students who score higher may be more attractive to many four-year college programs. The number of high school students who take the ACT has increased every year since its inception. It was taken by nearly two million students in 2018. Although students can learn what they need to know to score well on the ACT from regular classroom learning, many students find that they need a little extra help from Ann Arbor ACT tutors to review the material that will be on the exam. They can also give students a good idea of what to expect from the exam format, which can be just as vital as knowing what content will be on the exam.

How is Ann Arbor ACT tutoring different from classroom learning?

The biggest benefit of Ann Arbor ACT tutoring is that it allows your student to receive the undivided attention of an experienced instructor. There is much that can be learned in a classroom, and many high schools do take the time to help students study for the ACT, but that is still a group setting. It often doesn't give teachers the chance to answer an individual student's questions, nor does it allow teachers to adjust their teaching style for one person's benefit. It's easy for students to end up getting lost in the shuffle if they are in larger classes. On the other hand, the best Ann Arbor ACT tutors can focus individually on your student. They understand that every student has their own way of learning, and they can come up with lesson plans and teaching methods to cater to practically any learning style. For example, a student who has trouble retaining information from a classroom lecture might find that they do well with flashcards or other visual learning styles. No matter how your student prefers to study, a good ACT tutor will be able to help them stay on track as they prepare for their exam.

Ann Arbor ACT tutoring can also allow your student to focus on specific subjects that are giving them the most trouble. The ACT consists of a Math Section, a Reading Section, an English Section, and a Science Section. If your student is taking the ACT Plus Writing, they will also have a Writing Section that gives them 40 minutes to write an essay about their point of view on a particular topic that relates to three other points of view. All of this is challenging enough, and very few students will excel at every one of these sections. Rather than sit in a classroom and learn a little bit about each of these subjects, Ann Arbor ACT tutors can spend more time on the one or two subjects that are currently vexing a student. They can still go over the rest of the material, but the majority of the focus will be on the more difficult subjects for your student. For example, the Math Section tests pre-algebra, elementary and intermediate algebra, and trigonometry. Your student may study algebra as part of their preparation for the Math Section, but if they are having more trouble with trigonometry, their instructor can spend more time on that subject while reviewing algebra problems to keep them fresh in your student's mind.

What are the benefits of having my student study with Ann Arbor ACT tutors near me?

An Ann Arbor ACT tutor can assess your student's skill and knowledge and determine where they need the most assistance as they study for the ACT. They can then come up with a lesson plan that best suits the needs and learning style of your student. An instructor can take the time to get to know your student, discuss what they want to get out of their tutoring sessions, and even address any nervousness that they might feel about the ACT. Since Ann Arbor ACT tutors have experience with the ACT, they can give your student tips on how to prepare for it that go beyond being knowledgeable in the proper subjects. They can discuss how to manage time so that your student can complete every section. It takes about two hours and 55 minutes without breaks to take the ACT, and while that does seem like a lot of time, each section has its own time limit and number of questions. It's easy to get caught up on one or two questions and not get to some others, but an accomplished tutor can help you avoid that.

Ann Arbor ACT tutors can also provide your student with instant feedback from their tutor. This is part of the individualized one-on-one sessions that the best tutors provide. Your student will need to cover a lot of information across several subjects as they prepare for the exam, and they need to know how they are progressing so they can plan their future study sessions.

How do I fit Ann Arbor ACT tutoring into my student's schedule?

Another great benefit of Ann Arbor ACT tutoring is that it is often more flexible than traditional classroom learning. The ACT is often taken by high school students who already have a lot on their plate, and they might not have time to stick to a traditional tutoring schedule. That is why we do our best to connect you with an ACT tutor who can best suit your student's busy schedule. Whether your student has a part-time job, extracurricular activities, or they simply are busy studying for their regular classes, we can help you find Ann Arbor ACT tutors who can work with your student either online or in person.

Part of the reason why ACT tutoring tends to be so flexible is that much of it is online. Although students can certainly meet with Ann Arbor ACT tutors in person, the online sessions can be held from anywhere they have an internet connection and a reliable computer. Your student can have sessions with your tutor from your own home, but they can also go online and log onto the Live Learning Platform from locations like the Malletts Creek branch of the Ann Arbor District Library or the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library. This Live Learning Platform gives you and your student access to features such as video chat, a virtual whiteboard, integrated practice problems, and a shared document editor. Most importantly, the Live Learning Platform lets your student record their tutoring sessions so they can be reviewed later.
