Our team of experienced ACT tutors provides expert test prep to ensure your child achieves their target test ACT scores by test date. No matter which stage of the preparation process you are in, our ACT tutors will develop a tailored approach to help your child achieve their target scores and maximize their chances of getting into their dream universities in the US.
Generally, we would suggest our students take a practice ACT no later than grade 10 so we can gauge their starting point on the test. From there we would create a personalized preparation plan on how to get them ready by test date, as well as suggestions on their testing schedule.
Private and semi-private classes are available at our center or online. Whether you need a mock test, want an intensive, drill-heavy prep, or hope to build long-term foundations, our committed ACT tutors have the preparation tools and experience to ensure your child succeeds.
The American College Test (ACT) is one of two standardized exams used for the US university admissions process. It is offered as a computer-based test for students testing at international (outside of the US) test centers.
Like the SAT, the ACT measures a student’s academic level and his or her readiness for college. The ACT is split into four sections: English (75 questions in 45 minutes), Math (60 questions in 60 minutes), Reading (40 questions in 35 minutes), and Science (40 questions in 35 minutes).
|Number of Questions
|Break (10 minute)
|2 hour 55 minutes + 10 Minute Break
|Break (5 minute)
Each section of the ACT is scored from 1 to 36. The four sections are then averaged together to create the ACT Composite Score, which is also scored from 1 to 36. Composite scores round up or down following standard rules, so for example, a 28.3 would be 28 and a 28.5 would be a 29.
The ACT also includes an additional ACT Plus Writing Test, which is an essay that assesses your child’s writing abilities. Students are given 40 minutes to complete the Writing Test. The ACT Plus Writing Test is required by some colleges and optional for others.
