If you're stressed about preparing for the ACT exam and are looking for some extra help for yourself or your student, Varsity Tutors can connect you with the best Phoenix ACT tutors. As a leading college admissions exam, the ACT is designed to test a student's college readiness. The complexity of the exam, the scope of the material covered, and the stakes involved demand rigorous preparation. To understand more about how private instruction can offer just that, read on.

How can Phoenix ACT tutors near me help me prepare for the exam?

One of the more challenging aspects of preparing for the ACT is the amount of material that needs to be reviewed. There are four sections to the exam: Math, Reading, English, and Science. Though each of these sections aims to determine whether a student has developed sufficient comprehension in these arenas to succeed at the collegiate level, the manner in which these assessments are made varies by section. For instance, in the Science section, a student's recall is tested, as questions pertain largely to the topics of biology, chemistry, Earth and space sciences, and physics. Recall is also important on the Math section of the exam, but more as a function of understanding rules and guiding principles related to pre-algebra, elementary and intermediate algebra, coordinate and plane geometry, and trigonometry; you can't very well memorize a set of math problems. On the Reading and English sections, it's an entirely different type of assessment. Here, general rules regarding things like grammar and punctuation are important, but most questions evaluate skills related to concepts like topic development, making connections, and so forth. If you choose to take the ACT Plus Writing version of the exam, you'll be evaluated again in that section on many of the concepts seen on the Reading and English sections in addition to your writing skills, as the assessment is essay-based instead of featuring multiple-choice questions. Phoenix ACT tutors can help students review materials associated with each of these sections and the ways in which that knowledge will be assessed.

Another difficulty associated with preparation can be that students enter into the review at various stages of their academic career. Most students take the ACT during their junior year of high school, but technically it can be taken by sophomores and seniors, as well. Depending on where you live, what your interests are, and what your goals are, you may or may not have studied some of these subjects recently or at all. Phoenix ACT tutors can help you prepare by reviewing your history and prioritizing the preparation process accordingly, recommending additional study materials outside of your time together as needed.

Even if you feel you are adequately prepared for the substance of the exam, such a review can carry substantial benefit. At a bare minimum, it can refresh your memory on particulars you are likely to see on the day of the test. This can improve your recall when it comes time to put pencil to paper. However, it's also possible you may have a blind spot or two in your preparation. The review can highlight areas where you need to focus, allowing you to prepare more efficiently.

Phoenix ACT tutoring can also prepare you for the structure of the exam. While it's always good to be ready for the substance of an exam, it's not going to be of much use if you can't demonstrate that proficiency. Your private instructor can help here by getting you familiar with the wording you're likely to see on the exams so that question phrasing doesn't leave you confused. They can also introduce strategies that make navigating these questions a little easier, like ways to eliminate wrong answers which make selecting the correct answer less difficult and time management tactics that make it less likely that you'll be rushing towards the end. Finally, Phoenix ACT tutors can administer practice exams to get you used to performing within time constraints. This is important because it can help your confidence grow ahead of the test, but also because it can help you track your progress headed up to the big day.

What are the benefits associated with working with Phoenix ACT tutors near me?

The most significant benefit of working with Phoenix ACT tutors is that you get one-on-one attention from an expert. Varsity Tutors thoroughly vets all private instructors to make sure they have the proper experience and the requisite knowledge to guide students through the preparation process. They also evaluate their communication skills. All the knowledge in the world is useless if the instructor can't impart it to their student. Working with your instructor in these individual sessions, you'll be able to ask questions and get answers in the moment, clearing up confusion before it can become a stumbling block, with the confidence that your instructor is a true professional.

The other benefit associated with the individual attention you'll receive with Phoenix ACT tutoring is that the instruction can be customized to your learning preferences. Research has shown that we tend to better retain information when we're feeling engaged. Your instructor can take the time to get to know you and customize their approach to working with you to make sure you're engaged with the material in order to optimize the learning experience. For example, some people are really competitive. If you're one such person, your instructor might introduce timed math quizzes, urging you to beat your top times and scores with rewards for doing so. If you're an aural learner, they might use mnemonic devices to make it easier for you to remember different chemistry concepts. This type of custom instruction can be hard to come by otherwise.

Phoenix ACT tutoring can also be customized to your pace of learning. With other forms of preparation, like a preparation course, that pacing is set. An instructor has a curriculum they have to cover in a set amount of time. They can't speed up or slow down just to accommodate a single student. With Phoenix ACT tutoring, a single student - you, specifically - is exactly what it's all about. There's no need to waste time on a topic you've already mastered and there's no reason why the scheduled shouldn't be shifted if you need a little extra time to solidify comprehension of a different one. Phoenix ACT tutoring is all about setting you up for success.

Phoenix ACT tutors can also help boost your confidence. Getting reading for the ACT can be stressful. In working with a private instructor, you can reduce your anxiety with the knowledge that you've done everything that you could to get ready. They can also teach you mindfulness strategies to calm you down on the day of the exam, helping you to better focus and boosting your performance overall.
