Mr. B is an outstanding test prep coach!!! After a few tough SAT experiences my daughter was frustrated and disappointed, and doubted if she would be able to earn the type of score that she had been working so hard for. Mr. B and his son were able to make such significant strides in my daughter's progress from the first session! Right away she proclaimed how effective they are and how much she was able to learn. They have a very comprehensive approach, and offer way more than your typical tutor - they genuinely care about the progress of their students. My daughter considers Mr. B a life coach and he teaches her skills that she will use for the rest of her life. He has taught her how to work smarter as she works harder. She's much faster in the practice tests and her scores increase with every session. Now, she's so much more confident in her test taking skills. I would highly recommend Mustard Seed enterprises to those seeking an amazingly effective tutor or test prep coach!

Audrey is an incredibly smart and patient math tutor who knows how to get the best out of her students. We were looking for a math tutor to work with our daughter who has struggled with this subject throughout elementary and middle school. After spending time with Audrey, our daughter started doing better in class with her assignments, and with her homework, her confidence grew as her grades improved... No more fighting every night about math!!! After working with Audrey for one academic year, my daughter went from a “D" to an “A" student in math. She also did an amazing job on Florida’s math Standardized Assessment test for 8th graders. My daughter is now taking Algebra Honors in 9th grade and we have Audrey on speed dial!! Working with Audrey was one of the best decisions we have made in helping our daughter to accomplish her goals as well as keeping the peace in our home :o) We are looking forward to a great school year.

Ms. Werb is a magnificent teacher. I had her as my SAT/ACT test prep teacher and she went above and beyond. Her expanse knowledge on the subject helped me improve my score dramatically from a 21 on my reading ACT to a 26 in a few months. I am more than glad, I am honored to have been one of her students. I was able to attend a wonderful university and gain many scholarahips because of her and I truly thank her for it.

Academic Advantage was recommended to us by several people. We spoke with Seth and he started preparing my daughter for her ACT/SAT. By the time she was done working with him, her score was up over 300 points and she was receiving scholarship offers. Seth also helped her with her college applications and essays, and was equally skilled at that as well. We also used other tutors from Academic Advantage and they were very professional and really knew their stuff. Now, my son is going to take his ACT/SAT and we will be using Academic Advantage again!

    My personal experience with Ginny's tutoring services are second to none. From my first tutoring session with Ginny I knew how valuable my time with her would be. Ginny is undeniably intelligent and methodical but she is also very relatable and easy to get along with. I had no problem clicking with Ginny and that means a lot to me because if I'm not comfortable in an environment then it makes it much harder for me to learn. In my first couple of months tutoring with her my ACT score went up four points and within four more months my ACT score went up two more points. From talking to friends and other people in my high school I learned that going up 6 points on your ACT score is quite rare. I'm so thankful for Ginny and the knowledge I have acquired from her. Thanks to Ginny I received a generous scholarship to the college I wanted to attend and I am currently completely content at college and forever thankful for Ginny.

    She is very helpful with figuring out what your weaknesses are. She takes the time to get to know you. I like how she is able to figure out ways to help me increase my scores. She has been tutoring me to improve my ACT scores and not only have I improved with my scores but also on English tests at school. Before Madeline I struggled with English but lately I have been doing very well on my tests and I thank her for helping me. She also taught me which reading sections I need to start with because I understand the readings better. I am very thankful to have her as my tutor. I hope other kids get the great opportunity to have her as their tutor as well.

      Nataliya was a wonderful tutor for my son. I was extremely fortunate to find her. We had a good discussion about my sons learning needs and style. I am very grateful that Nataliya was very receptive and accommodating to help my son learn his math concepts in time for his final exam. I definitely recommend Nataliya to anyone looking for at tutor who is both knowledgeable and professional! Thanks again Nataliya for your hard work.

My goal is not only for my students to learn, but to feel comfortable and confident in their abilities. I also focus on test prep to ensure that students know how to utilize common testing strategies during exams.

I am a scientist researching in the biomedical field, and as a result I am also well versed in statistics math.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is ACT test prep?

      The ACT is a college entrance exam taken by students (typically in their junior year of high school) to determine admission eligibility and merit-based scholarship eligibility. The test may be taken as many times as desired and is not limited to high school juniors. Originally the acronym stood for American College Testing, but now ACT is the stand-alone name. ACT prep is a way for students to strategically prepare for test-taking. ACT prep helps students improve scores, practice taking the test, learn test-taking strategies, and improve material comprehension. Students can get help with ACT prep tutors in one-on-one sessions, via group tutoring lessons, in online self-study programs, or online with a tutor in video calls. The ACT test covers:

      • English
      • Science understanding and reasoning
      • Math
      • Reading
      • Writing essay (optional)

      How do you prepare for the ACT?

      The ACT is a universally accepted college readiness exam. There are multiple ways to prepare for the exam. One-on-one ACT prep tutoring is one of the most effective ways for students to ready themselves for the test. A tutor who specializes in ACT prep will coach the student on the type of material they can expect while also working specifically with topics that are more challenging for that particular student. Group tutoring sessions are a more cost-effective way to reap the benefits of an ACT prep instructor; a suggestion is to gather a group of four friends or classmates to share the cost. Professional tutors often recommend that test prep begin approximately three months prior to the exam. Cramming — unfortunately — doesn’t provide the same score results as consistent study, test-related homework, and practice exams do. Weekly two-hour learning sessions are what many pro tutors suggest for their college exam prep students. For top test-taking performance, tutors usually provide work throughout the week and the weekly session is used to cement knowledge and address weak areas. Math is a hard topic for most students, so plan accordingly.

      How long does the ACT take?

      Total time for the ACT is 2 hours and 55 minutes. If students elect to do the optional writing section, the ACT will be 3 hours and 35 minutes. The ACT college entrance exam has multiple sections. The students receive a set amount of time for each section, within which they complete as much of that category as possible before they must stop. For each timed section, there is a five-minute warning before time is up. There is a 10-minute break between the math and reading sections. When tutors coach students in ACT prep, they can provide timed runs to simulate the experience of taking the different subject matter tests. As part of ACT prep, it’s important to take the entire exam at least once as a practice run. Here is a breakdown of timing and number of questions for each section.

      • ACT English test: 45 minutes for 75 questions that test students’ understanding of standard English rules, production of writing, and vocabulary.
      • ACT mathematics test: 60 minutes for 60 questions that test students’ understanding of math skills up to the start of senior year of high school.  
      • Ten-minute break.
      • ACT reading test: 35 minutes for 40 questions that measure students’ reading comprehension.
      • ACT science test: 35 minutes for 40 questions that measure students’ understanding and problem-solving skills in the realm of natural sciences.
      • ACT writing test: 40-minute written essay that will measure students' writing skills.

       

      How many questions are on the ACT test?

      There are 215 total questions on the ACT test. The ACT covers four academic areas and students have 175 minutes total to complete the test. For students who opt to take the ACT writing test, there will be a written essay (in addition to the standard ACT topics), which students will have 40 minutes to complete. For ACT prep, it’s wise to study the material that will be covered within each academic category and take practice tests to become comfortable with the format.

      The English test has 75 questions that must be completed within 45 minutes. The math test has 60 questions with a 60-minute time limit. The reading test has 40 questions and 35 minutes total. The science test has 40 questions that must be completed in 35 minutes. Tutors may recommend taking the test more than once as part of the ACT prep training, with the goal of improving your overall score each time. Official ACT recommendations urge students to answer each question on test day, even if it is a guess, as there is no penalty for guessing.

      What are the subjects on the ACT?

      English, mathematics, reading, and science are the four main subjects on the ACT. Writing is an optional subject students can select when they register to take the test. The subjects were determined as a way to test the sum total of knowledge and comprehension that the students have accumulated up until the start of their senior year of high school. ACT prep breaks down each subject of the ACT test so the student understands what type of questions they will encounter and to provide them with strategies for answering questions. Doing well on the ACT is not only about academic smarts. Learning the nuances of taking a standardized test can greatly improve a student’s test scores. On the ACT, each of the four subjects is broken into subsections to test the students’ understanding in that area. The official ACT website provides free online ACT prep tools for each section, including English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing.
