I needed a tutor to help me with some math concepts I needed to pass my Pcat. Jesse was very knowledgeable and thought me fast steps and ways to solve different problems. He is also a very friendly, nice man. Very easy to talk to. I passed my Pcat and must say he contributed to it.

Nick is a great tutor, he helped my Son prepare for his ACT. My Son says he breaks problems down into terms he could easily relate to. My Sons confidence has increased tremendously. Even his teacher at school has stated to me that there is a marked improvement in his classwork. I highly recomend Nick if you need help preparing for ACT or SAT testing or even if you just need help keeping up in class.

        About

        As someone who was very recently a student himself, I have a closeness and familiarity with the particular brand of confusion that ails confused students that most older professional tutors do not. Contrary to popular belief, however, this confusion isn’t a bad thing - quite the opposite, it is essential to intellectual growth, the sweat of learning. Just as well as I know the feeling of not quite “getting” something, I know the immense joy that comes with overcoming it and excelling as a result. Over my 4 years as an instructor, I’ve seen the wonders that giving children a deep conceptual understanding of the basics, and showing them why everything they learn is exciting and interesting, can do. If given the chance, I believe I could help your child succeed with flying colors in academics and beyond.

        About

        I offer academic tutoring services. I have two advance degrees and two undergraduate degrees. I enjoy teaching and helping others learn. Ever since I tutored college students at Franklin University, I have always wanted to pursue education by teaching learners. Now that I have a post master's in college teaching, I understand that every student is unique and have different learning styles. Every educator must know how to hone in on these learning styles to ensure that learning takes place.

        About

        I am currently a 4th-year going a 5th-year student at Ohio State. I'm an industrial systems and physics major, and I want to get my PhD someday. The idea of teaching is a very exciting job for me, and I want to aim to be a professor and do research. I want to tutor because I grew up in a tougher home environment and went to school based on loans, and I know what it's like to lose motivation. I can understand where kids are coming from when they're frustrated with school work, and I am confident the tutoring experience will benefit the person and me in the teaching experience.

        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.
