Justus tutored my daughter for her second SAT attempt. She took the test untutored the first time and ended up with 690, 770 and 780 in reading, writing and math. She felt she needed tutoring help with reading and writing (particularly the essay), as she had plateaued in the days leading up to the test, and wasn't improving with any added effort. I found Justus on Thumbtack, and even though he was a tad more expensive than most other tutors, we instinctively felt he was the right fit based on how he described himself, and a conversation we had with him over the phone. While we had heard that tutors could help a lot, we also knew that it is much easier for a tutor to help with pushing the score from 500 to 600 or from 600 to 700 than from 700 to 750. However, Justus was outstanding – my daughter found him to be very systematic, calm, measured, knew exactly what she needed to work on, and what she needed to do to get better. He identified all her weak spots in the first couple of classes and went about methodically helping her improve. He gave her a ton of practice tests, homework to get specific sections right, a great selection of examples to use in essays, and a well-compiled list of vocabulary words. My daughter just took the test for the second attempt today, so while we don’t know the results yet, all the practice tests she took leading up to the test showed her consistently getting much better scores – 750-800 in reading and 770-800 in writing. While admittedly we do not have experience with any other tutor, we strongly recommend Justus as we found him to be just what the doctor ordered, at least for us. Best of luck!

      My motto is: "With each concept I did not know, there's always a journey." Even if I don't know something, I will strive to learn it. This motto has proven to be very invaluable even early on throughout high school, as I received a full-academic scholarship to a well-respected and prestigious university. It's an important quality for someone to know a lot, but I find that the most important quality is an undying motivation to help a student get better and to find a common ground so that a student can relate and retain the information. This is what I bring to the table. As a graduate of Transylvania University, I understand the struggles that school life presents. Either the teacher doesn't explain things in a way the student understands, or the student happens to lack the motivation necessary to be successful in that class. Keeping this in mind, I will provide the best structure, information, and strategy(ies) possible to give your student ultimate success in their math class. I have tutored various levels of math at various ages/abilities. My tutoring first started when I was in high school in an after-school program. Mainly, I would help with Algebra 1 and 2 and geometry. Occasionally, I would venture over to the adjacent middle school to help with pre-algebra-related issues. When I entered college, I sought purpose. I decided to continue tutoring. After that, I have been tutoring for college students at Transylvania University, helping with more and more subjects, as I progressed through my major (mathematics). Currently, in addition to high-school-level subjects, I can help with Calculus I, II and III, linear algebra and most mathematics topics in general.

      Customized, 10 hour ACT preparation program is completely tailored to the student. Average score increase across 87 students, over the past 11 years, is 6.2 points. I only take on a very small number of students total per testing cycle, never prepped together, to maximize results for those students. I currently have 2 openings for the October ACT preparation, which would have 10 hours disbursed between now and the test date. Cost is typically $200 per session for all 10 sessions.

      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.
