I have been successfully teaching ACT test-taking strategies for the past 6 years. I love the moment when my student realizes that this test is not about studying for hours, but more about the strategies behind taking a multiple choice test such as this one. I assure them that they will be successful if they follow my step-by-step way of answering each question, with success! Please allow me to help your teen raise his or her score to be able to 1) get in to the desired university or 2) get the needed score that save you thousands in student loan dollars. It's worth the 10-20 hours he or she will spend with me!

As a student preparing for college, I scored in the 99th percentile on the ACT.

I have over 5 years tutoring for ACT preparation. I have a vast amount of materials that aid in lessons and regularly review the exam, in order to stay current with any changes in the test format.

As an example, over a Summer session (which, yes, was very thorough and and rigorous), we worked together to raise his composite score by 7 points in a period of just 6 weeks.

I will help your son or daughter achieve their score through a variety of techniques, tailored to their needs, that I have fine-tuned during my years of experience with this exam.

Why TakeLessons?

ACT Lessons

The ACT is now a necessary part of every high school curriculum. Every student in their junior year is required to take this standardized test in order to transition to the next year, making it essentially a replacement for the SAT (though SATs can still be taken for seniors).

Do I Need ACT Tutoring Lessons?

It doesn't matter where a student's strengths or weaknesses lie, or what subject they are in. Having a patient TakeLessons ACT tutor can help ensure the test is as painless an experience as possible. A helpful tutor will assist in:
• Developing math, science, reading and English skills
• Effectively solving common problems appearing on the ACT
• Preparing with practice tests, making students more likely to improve their overall composite score

Being well-prepared for the ACT will alleviate much of the stress of taking the test and, of course, the less stress a student is under, the better he or she is likely to do on the test.

The Benefits of One-On-One Lessons

TakeLessons ACT tutors work to understand the individual needs of each student and determine how they can best maneuver through the tougher areas of the test. ACT Prep tutoring gives every student the confidence they need to succeed, guiding them through the best ways to approach the test so they know what to expect.

Nothing should come as a surprise to a student who goes through extensive ACT Prep tutoring. Students will be armed not only with knowledge about the subjects appearing on the test, but also the way in which the test is administered and structured. Tutoring can also improve the overall learning abilities and test-taking skills of those students who commit to it, making it an invaluable asset in their future education experience, even after graduation.

Some of the benefits of working with a TakeLessons Certified Tutor include:
• Customized lessons to ensure the student is getting exactly what they need
• Safe, friendly, qualified tutors who have completed an extensive hiring process, including education, reference and background checks
• The flexibility of lessons in your home, online, or in a convenient location like a library or coffee shop
• A risk-free 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not completely satisfied

Taking part in TakeLessons ACT Prep tutoring equips students with tools for success, giving them the confidence to master the ACT when the time comes. Call us today to get started.
