Frequently Asked Questions About ACT Tutoring & Prep
What Is the ACT?
The ACT is a multiple-choice, college admissions exam used by most colleges & universities in the United States. The ACT is designed to assess a high school student's readiness for higher education, and generally speaking, the higher a student scores on the ACT, the more options they have for college selection and potential scholarships.
How much can ACT Tutoring improve your score?
Multiple sources have identified a significant difference between ACT score prior to tutoring and after. For example, Sexton Test Prep found that 12-16 hours of ACT tutoring resulted in an average score increase of 3-5 points.
What should I look for in an ACT tutor?
First and foremost, you want an ACT tutor who not only understands the ACT, but who is also able to both teach the test and understands your individual academic needs. Additionally, a good ACT tutor will go beyond the basics of the test itself, teaching you the best strategies for each specific section as it relates to your strengths and weaknesses.
What is the best way to prepare for the ACT?
When it comes to preparing for the ACT, there are a few best practices to follow. First, you'll want to start early to ensure that you have ample time to prepare yourself. Additionally, you'll want to make sure that your study fits your specific needs and that you're varying the sources you use and the ways you study. It would also benefit you to familiarize yourself with the test itself by reviewing practice questions and past exams. Finally, finding an ACT tutor will ensure that you're fully prepared to take on the ACT.
When should I start preparing for the ACT?
We recommend that most first-time test takers start preparing for the ACT about three months in advance of test day, but for students who have a difficult time with certain concepts like math, we recommend starting your ACT prep at least six months in advance to allow enough time to be fully prepared. Depending on when you plan on taking the ACT, its best to start your ACT prep journey during the end of your sophomore year of high school.
How long should I study for the ACT?
The amount of studying required for the ACT will vary from student to student depending on their specific academic strengths. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend studying at least three hours a week for three months prior to taking the ACT.
How many times can I take the ACT?
A student is able to take the ACT up to 12 different times, though on average, most students take the ACT no more than 2-3 times. If you've already taken the ACT and are planning on taking it again to improve your score, we recommend enlisting the help of one of our ACT tutors to help ensure you get the highest score possible on subsequent exam attempts.
How much does ACT prep cost?
The cost of ACT prep will vary depending on the type of prep you're looking for. Self-guided ACT resources & materials can cost $10-$30, while enlisting the help of a private ACT tutor can range anywhere from $200 to $1000 per hour. Fortunately, InspiricaPros has a variety of ACT tutors to meet your budget & your specific ACT prep needs.
An Overview of the ACT Test Format
The ACT is a multiple choice exam consisting of five separate sections: English, Math, Reading, Science, and an optional Writing section. The exam takes 3 hours and 35 minutes to complete, and test-takers are given two short breaks between the math and reading section and one just before the writing portion of the test.
|ACT Section||Time Limit||Number of Questions||Topics Covered|
|English||45 minutes||75 questions||Grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, rhetorical skills, knowledge of language, topic development, organization & cohesion|
|Math||60 minutes||60 questions||Algebra, functions, coordinate geometry, plane geometry, volume measurements, trigonometry, statistics & probability, rates & percentages, proportional relationships|
|Reading||35 minutes||40 questions||Finding & interpreting details, comparative relationships, understanding context-dependency, making generalizations, analyzing voice, tone, and style, claims and arguments|
|Science||35 minutes||40 questions||Biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, data representation, research summaries, conflicting viewpoints, evaluating theories & hypotheses|
|Writing (Optional)||40 minutes||One essay||Developing unique perspectives, critical thinking & reasoning, relationships between differing viewpoints, expository writing, evaluating arguments, and rhetorical analysis|
