If, for you, being tested on vocabulary means answering the exact definition of a word, then you may not necessarily be familiar with how the ACT chooses to test vocabulary. The ACT knows it’s fairly straightforward to memorize words and their meanings, so they decide to take it a step further by testing whether or not you understand how the word is being used and in what specific context.
I am a professional in the ACT preparation field and a question we tend to hear from students beginning their test prep journey is how, exactly, the ACT tests vocabulary and what students can do in terms of preparation to succeed in this area. I am going to explain how the ACT tests your understanding of words based on context and how you can prepare yourself to do well! Continue reading

If you are studying for the ACT or SAT, you already know that there are tons of resources out there (both paid and free) to help you practice section-specific questions that you may see on testing day. I would know. I write a lot of these guides for a living. A question that I often see students asking in comments or on chats is how to improve their score. They don’t understand how they’ve tested lower than expected and are concerned that their composite score will not be high enough to get into the school of their dreams.
As a result to these queries, this article is not set up to be another section-specific studying resource, because hopefully you are already following a structured studying outline either on your own or with professional assistance. Instead, I’m offering an actionable set of proven strategies and tips that will help you improve your score effectively and efficiently in addition to a structured studying plan. Continue reading

Spotting an effective tutor is not as simple as it may seem. Fortunately, there are seven tell-tale signs of such highly effective tutors:
1. Subject Mastery
2. Teaching Experience
3. Preparation of Each Lesson
4. Use of High-Quality Material
5. Monitors the Effectiveness of Her Own Teachings
6. Constant Professional Development
7. Excellent Soft Qualities
This is a list of teaching qualities only. It disregards other selection criteria such as the hourly tutoring rate, gender-preference, driving distance, age, availability or learning disabilities of the student. While these criteria are certainly important, they are outside the scope of this article. Just one more note on these needs and criteria: They are different for everyone! So, be sure to know who you are, what is your budget and on what criteria you can make compromises.
