Nancy has been such an incredible ray of light for my daughter. Her skills and knowledge are outstanding. Her style of tutoring works well with my daughter. She not only has been able to increase her skills in reading and test taking, but also has given her the confidence she needs to take standardized tests in preparation for college. She is also very kind and sincere. I would highly recommend Nancy to any student needing tutoring.

Gary has been tutoring my high school senior since last December in preparation for his entrance exams to college. The experience has been an eye opener for me and my son in how much difference a well trained professional tutor has made in the outcome of his test scores. Gary has tackled the challenge of working around the hectic schedule of a high school athlete, the long distance issues of teaching via Skype, and has gone above and beyond to make himself available to my son. By the same token, he has helped with improved study habits and other areas far beyond the test taking help for which we originally hired him. I would strongly recommend Gary as a consummate professional tutor who "gets the new generation" of kids and can manage the most difficult of situations to achieve results.

Rhonda has been a blessing. Our son was really struggling in Algebra II and Rhonda quickly got him caught-up and he is now making an "A". Most important my son loves working with her and we are now focusing his needs towards SAT & ACT prep through Rhonda.

Keith is the best tutor anyone could ever ask for. He is so understanding and considerate and really genuinely wants you to do well in your course and in life. If I was late to our tutor session at my house he would sit in his car and wait for me. He would always be so pleasant and kind. Every course he has taught me in college and highschool, I have gotten an A in. He shows you that you can do it and he gives you the confidence by encouraging you. I would have never thought that I would be able to do math like I am now and it's all because of Keith. He really made me realize that I can do anything and that I can do very difficult math. With Keith you will be able to go above and beyond your goals and he will be right there with you telling you that you can do it. I really am blessed to have him in my life and he is the best tutor I have ever had. Because of him my GPA is amazing and I am not even worried about the classes he tutors me in even though they are very difficult classes. He is the best tutor you will ever find! Hands down! -Sam McCarthy

Michelle is such a caring, and genuinely understanding person and tutor! I went into SAT tutoring scared and now I take the test in November and I'm feeling ten times more confident about it. I can really tell I have improved since the beginning of our sessions and I owe it all to her, she truly is amazing. Over time we really have developed a friendship and I am so excited to see how I do on the test!

Before finding Brittany, our family had gone through six other tutors and tried a few different agencies. My daughter Maggie had not done well on her SAT and had struggled in math as well. Brittany worked with her over eight weeks to cover each section in depth and really helped her to understand the material. My daughter retook the test and her score improved 370 points! Brittany has so much experience and is so great at working with our daughter to get to the root of the problem. We recommended her to all of our friends with children in high school. If you need help with test prep for your students, she is the tutor for you! Brittany made Maggie feel so comfortable and helped her so much with understanding the material, that we kept her on as a weekly tutor for math and chemistry. She is such a bright and compassionate young girl, we feel so thankful to have her in our lives!

Club Z! In-Home Tutoring provides fantastic tutoring at reasonable rates. Highly recommend the SAT prep program, along with math and English classes. Tutors are very nice and helpful. They helped raise SAT test scores by 240 points on SAT and 5 points on ACT. Mark did a great job of listening to my daughter's unique learning style (she has learning differences and math/test-taking anxiety) and customizing the instruction. The team is incredibly smart, warm, and approachable. I would highly recommend Club Z! In-Home Tutoring not only to gifted test-takers but also to students with learning differences.

Ms. Wen is an amazing violin instructor. She has studied violin and piano since 5 years to age and it shows through her knowledge and practice of the arts. My son and daughter love working with her and always look forward to her lessons. I make sure my kids practice at least 30 minutes every day to apply what they learned in their music and build a solid foundation. Wen is very responsive and will be flexible with my schedule if my kids have something come up. Recommend 5/5

About

I can help with the following: * Mathematics, calculus, pre-calculus, algebra (I or II) or geometry * Test prep, SAT math, ACT math, or GRE math I have a B.S. in Mathematics and taught at the high school level for 4 years. After that, I decided to return to school for a Master of Engineering degree for a career change. I am currently a structural engineer working on various projects, ranging from bridge design and inspection to heavy civil structural design. Before teaching, I also gained several years of experience tutoring at UNT's math lab. I love tutoring because I get to see students' "Ah-ha!" moments so much more frequently than as a teacher! It has also been very fulfilling to help struggling students turn their grades around and achieve success! If my availability matches yours, I'd love to help!

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.

How long does the ACT take?

Total time for the ACT is 2 hours and 55 minutes. If students elect to do the optional writing section, the ACT will be 3 hours and 35 minutes. The ACT college entrance exam has multiple sections. The students receive a set amount of time for each section, within which they complete as much of that category as possible before they must stop. For each timed section, there is a five-minute warning before time is up. There is a 10-minute break between the math and reading sections. When tutors coach students in ACT prep, they can provide timed runs to simulate the experience of taking the different subject matter tests. As part of ACT prep, it’s important to take the entire exam at least once as a practice run. Here is a breakdown of timing and number of questions for each section.

  • ACT English test: 45 minutes for 75 questions that test students’ understanding of standard English rules, production of writing, and vocabulary.
  • ACT mathematics test: 60 minutes for 60 questions that test students’ understanding of math skills up to the start of senior year of high school.  
  • Ten-minute break.
  • ACT reading test: 35 minutes for 40 questions that measure students’ reading comprehension.
  • ACT science test: 35 minutes for 40 questions that measure students’ understanding and problem-solving skills in the realm of natural sciences.
  • ACT writing test: 40-minute written essay that will measure students' writing skills.

 

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.

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.
