The ACT Test is quite different from the SAT - it is more closely related to PreCalculus as far as math goes. The science section is really more about being able to read graphs and interpret reading passages. We also tutor the science section of the ACT.
Like the SAT, the ACT is a timed test and many questions are designed for students that are good with numbers. Test questions often use perfect cubes and squares as well as pythagorean triples such as the 3-4-5 right triangles.
ACT Tutoring only benefits students that put in a lot of time outside of tutoring practicing problem.
We recommend 2 sessions per week for 8 weeks with students practicing a minimum of one full 60 question math section from practice tests per tutoring session. This equates to about 120 problems per week multiplied by 8 weeks to become approximately 960 to 1920 practice problems. Before each session it is absolutely essential for students to do the practice, self correct, and re-try problems that were done incorrectly. This way students become more invested in the problems and much deeper learning takes place during tutoring sessions. When students practice math sections they are strongly encouraged to time themselves.
