1-on-1 ACT Tutoring

College Admissions offices consider an ACT score on par with an SAT score. That is why we often recommend trying this alternative option before creating a plan for our students to maximize their results. Some students naturally score higher on this particular test, giving us a head start in the test prep process.

What are common reasons a student may do better on the ACT?

How is the ACT Different than the SAT?

✔️The ACT has a Science Section
✔️ Math is 1/4 of the composite score
✔️ Time per question is less than SAT
✔️ Math contains some pre-calculus
✔️ Test is still in a paper format
✔️ Test is longer (3.5 hours vs. 2 hours)
✔️ Score is out of 36 instead of 1600
✔️ Questions are more straightforward

After a 15-minute consultation, we will provide our new student with a diagnostic ACT to determine if their baseline is higher than their SAT baseline. We use a concordance table to make this comparison. If the student scores at least 50 points higher on the ACT, we recommend prepping for the ACT instead. If the student's scores are similar, then we perform a qualitative analysis and choose the test that the student feels more comfortable with.
