My sister and I had Mrs.Griswold for ACT English and Reading tutoring. She met with us every Saturday at my our home for hourlong sessions. From my time with her I have learned many things, Mrs.Griswold is an excellent teacher. I felt that learning with her was not a hassle or struggle, and that she allowed me to progress naturally and comfortably. She has a very kind and light-hearted personality and is very easy to work with. I would recommend Mrs.Griswold to anyone who is looking to understand the material, recognize patterns, and score highly on the test without all of the stress usually associated.

Karissa providing tutoring services to our son Mark in English for at least 18 months to get him through elementary school and then middle school. No easy task due to his defiance. He is now a freshman in high school and has not had any problems in English. During the sommer holidays, Karissa taught all 3 kids typing. Diana is still fully proficient in typing with 10 fingers. Mark is much better than the 1 finger method and Benny may need another course, because he was too young. Karissa is well prepared, takes the job very seriously. Also, she is very flexible. Best of all, she is affordable. We are glad to have had Karissa as our tutor and will hire her again, if the need arises.

I love reviewing my math with Mrs. Raj. I always go the day before I have a test and we go over everything I need to know. She makes you do problems until she knows that you understand. I always feel very prepared when for my next test when I walk out of her house. I would really recommend her to people because I have had other math tutors before and they just do not compare to Mrs. Raj.

We were so pleased with the individual tutoring that Brad gave our son, Tyler. He was so accommodating to Tyler’s busy sports and work schedule, was always on time, and professional. Brad’s positive and patient way quickly helped to establish a good rapport. Brad took the time in the beginning to assess Tyler’s strengths and weaknesses, so that they could make the most of their tutoring time. He knew exactly what to focus on to help Tyler meet his goal. Brad’s expertise regarding the SAT was exceptional. He shared with Tyler the techniques and tips that would make him successful. Tyler went from a 1320 on the PSAT to a 1460 on the SAT due to Brad’s outstanding guidance! It was money well spent! Thanks again! Cathy and Lee S.

I cannot say enough about Ms. Rangel's tutoring of my daughter, Cristina. After explaining to Natasha about the problems Cristina had with reading & comprehension, Natasha has really engaged my unfocused child with her hands on approach and variety of teaching methods which holds Cristina's interest. I see a huge improvement in Cristina's reading, as well as her enthusiasm for reading!

The tutors with tailor made have been awesome! They are all very patient with my three children. One thing I love about Tailor made is that they know each child learns different from the next and they tutor accordingly to that child level. The tutors also communicate & work with my children teachers. My son went from reading a grade level behind to reading at his level in months. That boosted his self-esteem! The last two years Tailor made have been a blessing to my family.

Yelena was an excellent tutor for my son who needed help preparing for high school Algebra. She able to teach him what he needed to learn to be prepared for high school math. She also was able to assess his current skill level and adapt her lessons to fit his needs. She is very professional and able to adjust her teaching style to make sure my son learned everything at his own pace. All her previous teaching experience was very evident and helpful during the tutoring sessions. I'm recommending her to everyone I know who might need math 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.
