Many colleges and universities require students to submit their ACT score with their application, so it is imperative that students do well on the exam. One great way achieve a higher score on the ACT is to prepare ahead of time for the test. This is done through individual studying or study groups, but for some students this is simply not enough.

Session Summaries by ACT Tutors

ACT Tutoring review by Seema in Somerville, MA
We reviewed a practice test that the student had taken and looked at all four sections. I went over how he could approach the reading and science sections. I also went over the different things that are tested on the writing section. Finally, we reviewed all the math questions which he got wrong and I went over the topics that he felt he needed more help on.

ACT Tutoring review by Hillary in Somerville, MA
The student began our session together by working through two English passages. She did very well on those. After that, we spent about 45 minutes discussing the writing portion. We looked at an essay topic and talked about the grading rubric. We wrapped up by working through three reading passages. She got the natural science and social science sections 100% correct.

ACT Tutoring review by Sebastian in Somerville, MA
We finished the math section, did a science section, and did half of a writing section. So far the student is stronger at science and writing than he is at math. I told him to review what we've already gone over and we'll go from there next time.

ACT Tutoring review by Emily in Somerville, MA
We worked on reading and English skills. We discussed pacing for the test and techniques that help raise reading speed. We also worked on reading comprehension and annotating the text before answering the questions. With English, we went over basic grammar skills. The student will be working on the reading and English as her homework this week. She is struggling with reading speed and comprehension, but did really well with her English pace and comprehension.

ACT Tutoring review by Anna in Somerville, MA
Today I got to know the student, determined her knowledge of ACT format and target score. She would like to focus on reading/math primarily. She answered reading questions at approx 70% accuracy. She states she is confident with vocabulary and questions that reference specific pieces of passage, less confident w/ overall tone and feeling. I also offered timing strategies and calculated target time per question.

ACT Tutoring review by Marilyn in Somerville, MA
The student and I used this session time to continue our review for the ACT. He asked to work on ACT Math. We had spent some of our previous session reviewing ACT Math. He took the ACT at the beginning of this month, so our review since then has been primarily in reaction to his experience with the exam. In this session, we reviewed probability, cones and prisms, and finding and creating equations from word problems. As I found in our last session, he is very capable of handling complex math practice work when he knows the formula to use on that particular problem. For homework I have asked him to review a variety of flashcards and practice exams. We will be meeting again on Tuesday.
