I am extremely pleased with Chelsea International. My daughter and I were struggling to find the right tutoring service for ACT prep at the right price. According to my daughter who has had top tier tutoring for most of her high school years, she expressed what an amazing teacher Dr. Michelle was, ...her exact words were...She was the "BEST tutor I ever had. " Naturally I was very happy to hear that. We will definitively contact Chelsea International again. I highly recommend them as they exceeded my expectations.

I have worked with ken for the last two years and I can honestly say he saved my life! I was a Junior in High School that was lazy and unmotivated with a miserable GPA. Ken helped me organize and get my act together. He helped me with study skills, daily time management goals, SAT and ACT prep, all of my high school courses, college applications, financial aide paperwork and so much more. I can now say I am a proud graduate of high school that has been admitted to FIU this summer. I never would have been able to do any of it without Ken's encouragement, patients, dedication and friendship and overwhelming knowledge in so many areas. I look forward to continuing my tutoring with Ken as I go through my college years!! No doubt, I would not be where I am now if it were not for him!!

I have to say that Prep by PAT has done an AMAZING job with my son!! My son was struggling with passing the reading part of the ACT. He's in fact took the ACT a couple of times and was unsuccessful with the reading part oh and forget the science...he bombed it!! It had gotten down to the nitty griddy, the now almost end of the school year, and this ACT is needed to GRADUATE!! There was only one more time to take this ACT and pass It to graduate. This is where Prep by PAT comes in!! They started tutoring my son twice a week for 3 weeks!!! After the first week my son expressed how much he had learned in just that little bit of time in fact he said he was able to use the skills he learned from Prep by PAT the first week on the FCAT! Well my son took his ACT and instead of getting a 19 on the reading which i believe is a passing score, he scored a whopping 33!!!! Yay!! And the science a 23!!! I mention the science because Prep by PAT squeezed in some pointers for passing the science part and my son was able to apply that and do great!!! I thank you Prep by PAT for your patience, and your love for what you do because if you didn't love it there is noooo way we would have seen these amazing results!!! We appreciate you!!!! Love you for life!!!!!

Having taken the ACT a few times before with the assistance of a different company I was not scoring what I was hoping to score. But from recommendations of previous students I deiced to try the Student Den. Barton Charplin, the owner, worked one-on-one with me. He created a comfortable environment, where I felt I could really get the answers I need. He thoroughly explained why I made the mistakes that I did as well as helped me get a better understanding of the test. I really would recommend his work for someone who needs help with the ACT or the SAT. I saw extreme results and am happy with what I got on the ACT.

    David became my daughter's tutor for the SAT for approximately 8 months after having had a tutor my daughter was very unhappy with. A friend recommended him. He was always timely, professional and had a set strategy for her to improve her scores since we were short on time. Her scores indeed improved and she was accepted to almost all of the colleges she applied to. He was also very realistic and guided her towards universities he felt she would get in and be happy at. I would highly recommend him as a college prep tutor.

    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.

    I stand out because unlike most tutors, my services don't stop once the session has ended. I understand how frustrating the LSAT can be, so I would like to help the best in the best way possible, by being available. Students can contact me via Skype or by phone aside from in-person tutoring.

    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.

    What is on the ACT?

    The ACT is made up of a variety of multi-choice questions under four main subject areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. There is also the option for a written essay. For ACT prep, it’s important to study each subject. Each subject area is broken down into multiple parts to provide a comprehensive snapshot of the student’s understanding of the material. ACT prep provides an opportunity to prepare for the subject matter in each area.

    ACT English:

    • Production of writing: 29 percent-32 percent of English score. These questions focus on topic development and organization, unity, and cohesion.
    • Knowledge of language: 13 percent-19 percent of English score. This section examines the student’s use of vocabulary and effective language use.
    • Conventions of standard English: 51 percent-56 percent of English score. These questions address sentence structure and formation, punctuation and grammar, and recognition of grammatical errors and how to improve.

     

    ACT Math:

    • Preparing for higher math: 57 percent-60 percent of mathematics score. These questions cover number and quantity, algebra, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability.
    • Integrating essential skills: 40 percent-43 percent of mathematics score. These questions address comprehension of math learned prior to and after 8th grade.
    • Modeling: less than 25 percent of mathematics score. These questions examine how students use modeling skills in all math topics.

     

    ACT Reading:

    • Key ideas and details: 55 percent-60 percent of reading score. The questions test students’ ability to summarize information, draw conclusions, and grasp central themes.
    • Craft and structure: 25-30 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand an author’s word choice and meaning and analyze various points of view.
    • Integration of knowledge and ideas: 13-18 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand facts and opinions and make connections between texts that share similar themes.

     

    ACT Science:

    • Interpretation of data: 45–55 percent of science score. Students will need to analyze and manipulate scientific data presented in various formats.
    • Scientific investigation: 20–30 percent of science score. These questions will test students’ understanding of experimental tools, procedures and design.
    • Evaluation of models, inferences, and experimental results: 25–35 percent of science score.

     

    ACT Writing:

    • This is a 40-minute written essay that examines students’ competence with ideas and analysis, development and support, organization, and language use and conventions.

    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.

    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.
