We hired Jocelyn for test preparation and writing services for my daughter's college admissions. We are also exercising options for Spanish classes with this company. There were a couple of reasons we hired Jocelyn. 1. She is knowledgeable about the ACT and what we could do to help our daughter succeed through the use of strategies 2. My daughter felt at ease and comfortable with Jocelyn the first time she talked to her over the phone. 3. We liked that Jocelyn and her team have more than one service avaliable. We don't have to hire out seperately for writing, ACT and Spanish classes. What puts the icing on the cake is that the work is quality and not mediocre.

Our student said, after her third appointment for ACT prep with Mr. Marquette, "I wish he'd been my math instructor all along!" She looks forward to their sessions and is making great strides in knowledge, skill and outlook. Darryl humbly but correctly identified his gifting: he CONNECTS with his students in a unique, personal way that makes them rise to the challenge and believe they can succeed. His tips, strategies, and approach are highly beneficial - we are so happy we made this choice!

Mr Gathany worked with my daughter on test prep for the SAT. He communicated with me every step of the way on the areas that needed improvement and also gave the work to build those areas. Mr Gathany was always there and I do consider his work very helpful to my daughters overall score. I highly recommend Mr Grathay if you are looking for someone to help get you grades or scores up.

My son is in 10th grade and a bright boy. However, with ACT tests coming up, we wanted him to reach his highest potential. Through the Chelsea International Getting Into The Ivys test prep program, my son has excelled so much so that he is up to go to Stanford. After doing 6 weeks of private tuition with Dr. Michelle, her patience, understanding and encouragement, has driven my son’s greatest results. He scored 34 on his first time taking the ACT and he had no prior ACT testing experience. I am so impressed and so thankful for the professional experience of Chelsea International.

I enjoyed the ACT tutoring course because I was given the same about of effort from my tutor, Mrs. Hypolite that I put into the lessons. She helped me increase my composite score 4 points. We set a goal, and focuced on each subject and where I needed to improve it. Our lessons were never rushed and I met each of my sub score goals successfully.

I was looking for a tutor for my daughter Danielle who is a senior in high school. Having taken the ACT for her first time with a score of 23, I wanted to help her improve off of that score. After extensive internet research for a tutor I found Matt Choi. After speaking with him I knew he would help my daughter improve. Matt had 4 weeks before my daughter was going to take the ACT for her second time. A total of 5 lessons over 4 weeks = 10 hours and my daughter just received her score of 29. If you want to help your child taking the ACT or SAT call him now, he is unbelievable.

I signed up for Tutelage Academy when I finally realized that I needed to do something about my SAT/ACT scores. Within two weeks of working with the teachers there, I saw progress in my scores. Within the span of one month, I went from a 29 on the ACT and a 1800 on the SAT to a 33 on the ACT (2200 SAT). The teachers at Tutelage Academy adapt to every student's individual style of learning, and I genuinely enjoyed learning in the environment they have created. Because of their help, I was recently accepted into UGA, NYU, and the University of Michigan. These are colleges that would be out of my reach without the help of Tutelage Academy, and I cannot thank the teachers there enough.

I recommend In-Home Tutors, as our experience was fantastic. My son was tutored for SAT Prep for the verbal/writing sections, and the tutor was experienced, knowledgeable and professional. The tutor communicated well with us, had great suggestions for improvement and was always on time. If we need a tutor again, I will definitely contact In-Home Tutors.

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.
