Mobile ACT Test Tutors
OUR TUTORS COME TO YOU!
Our goal is for your student to be in the most comfortable learning environment possible. Students can either choose to do tutoring in-home, at a local library, at a college/university, or Online. Students should start our tutoring by taking a practice test if they have not recently taken a test. Tutors should review the practice test results and students can give feedback on their weak areas of the test. This way students have the ability to master each possible topic (math/verbal). Our mobile private ACT tutors record each level of progress as each topic as it gets mastered.
Our ACT Prep Courses
The ACT consists of four multiple-choice tests and an optional Writing Test; each test is designed to measure academic achievement in a major area of high school study: English, mathematics, reading, science, and writing.
Math- Arithmetic, Algebra 1 & II, Geometry, Trigonometry
English- Usage/Mechanics, Rhetorical Skills
Reading Comprehension- Prose Fiction, Humanities, Social Studies, Natural Sciences
Science- Biology, Chemistry, Earth/Space Sciences, Physics
On the ACT English Test, you have 45 minutes to read five passages, or essays, and answer 75 multiple-choice questions about them – an average of 15 questions per essay. The ACT is designed to measure your ability to accomplish the wide variety of decisions involved in revising and editing a given piece of writing. You will not be tested on spelling. Grammar, usage, and vocabulary are tested only within the context of the essay.
You may be assigned 2 tutors that specializes in either the Math, Science and Verbal sections of the test or in some circumstances, you may receive 1 tutor that specializes in all sections of the test. Most of our tutors are certified teachers or have at least 2 year of professional teaching experience. Lesson plans are always flexible according to students’ needs. Our lessons comprise of face to face instruction in which your tutor will first teach strategies and techniques to master the ACT and will then review your student’s mock ACT. The tutor will guide the student in practicing questions out of The Real ACT Prep book and will have the opportunity to do more interactive practice online. We prioritize our lesson plan based on the students’ performance on the initial proctored Mock ACT or previously completed ACT. We look at what topics and areas he/she scored lowest in and schedule the sessions accordingly. Topics that the student performed below 80% require immediate attention and topics that were above 80% will still be covered in later lessons. The instructor will do her best to address all topics within the time frame given before the actual test. We assign students homework from the ACT Prep Book and expect the student to complete the assignment before the next tutoring session with the assigned tutor.

A Word From Our Students!
Learning the way the ACT works and the different types of passages really helped me to improve my efficiency during testing. In a test where time is so valuable, this training helped me improve my speed and therefore my science score went from a 25 to a 36 and my overall ACT score from a 30 to a 34. I couldn’t have asked for better results even with the limited time we had to prepare for that test.
Tutoring times were so flexible considering my busy schedule which I so much appreciate! I’ve recommended Asha and the program to my friend, Allison, and I believe she has already contacted y’all about tutoring for her after she heard about my success.
