ACT Test Prep Tutoring
Team Tutor’s ACT Prep Program is unique in that there are no long-term commitments required – we make a recommendation based on individual needs. Our private tutoring sessions are very competitively priced and are customized to meet the individual needs of each student in order to maximize the time we spend together. We also provide program materials as well as practice tests, and best of all – our ACT tutors come to you!
Here’s How We Work
Team Tutor understands that everyone brings with them an individual set of strengths and weaknesses – which is precisely why we have designed a personalized one-on-one ACT tutoring program that addresses the individual needs of each student. Our proven curriculum is designed to address the three main score-enhancing modalities: content review, essential test-taking strategies, and simulated test practice.
- The student completes a comprehensive diagnostic test.
- Team Tutor determines the student’s strengths and weaknesses using a computerized analysis of the test results.
- Based on these results, we design a custom test prep program that focuses on those areas in need of the most improvement.
Our ACT Tutors At Work
Our ACT tutors are rigorously screened, highly trained educators who take enormous pride in watching their students succeed. During the tutor selection and matching process, not only do we take into account the student’s academic record, we also consider his or her personality, learning traits, interests and hobbies. We know how important it is both academically and emotionally for your child to feel an immediate connection to his or her ACT tutor.
Nothing is more effective than one-on-one instruction! Our ACT Prep Program instills confidence and gets results! Call today to speak with one of our Philadelphia ACT tutors and be sure to check out our ACT blog.
About the ACT Test
The ACT (American College Testing) is a curriculum-based, standardized entrance exam that colleges and universities use to asses a student’s academic aptitude and readiness to enter college. Introduced in 1959, the ACT is accepted by most colleges and universities, however the weight placed on ACT scores varies from school to school.
Questions on the ACT are based on testing standards developed by national governing organizations, as well as national and state standards for education. The ACT measures a student’s skills in five subjects: English, mathematics, science, reading and writing (optional). Students typically take the ACT in the spring of their junior year and, if necessary, again in the fall of their senior year.
The ACT is composed of four multiple-choice sections—English, Math, Reading, and Science—and one optional essay section—Writing. The test is given at set time periods during the year and must be scheduled in advance. Students are allotted approximately 3.5 hours for the standard exam and just over 4 hours for the ACT Plus which includes the essay writing portion.
