The ACT is Just Around the Corner!


Fall testing season is beginning! The ACT, PSAT, and SAT are all just around the corner. With so many students still getting used to standardized testing again post-COVID, these tests may seem daunting! Tutoring can provide an enormous advantage by teaching students how to maintain focus, manage their time and energy for the duration of the exam, and answer questions accurately and efficiently.

The ACT in particular is a difficult exam, but is also highly coachable! It is fast-paced, but includes an additional Science portion which helps students with a STEM focus. Time management and test-taking strategies are crucial for this exam, and many students who come to us after taking the test with no preparation simply ran out of time. 

Not only do our 1-on-1 tutoring sessions focus on time-management and test-taking strategies, but we also deep dive into the specific content that students need to know. For some students, it’s as simple as getting refreshed on certain formulas. For others, they need to be retaught certain grammar rules. Whatever the case is for your student, a 1-on-1 tutor can customize their approach to your specific students’ learning style and test-taking needs.
