Matt's Tutoring Method

The ACT is broken up into four subjects: English, mathematics, reading, and science. Each subject is very different in style, but high school students can prepare for all of them.

English - this section can be broken down into many subtopics. The ACT is extremely repetitive with their English ACT questions. For example, they will always ask a who/whom question on the exam. Knowing certain rules and strategies can drastically increase an English ACT score.

Math - many students struggle with the math section, but the ACT is extremely repetitive with their math questions as well. They will never ask questions that require an advanced math background, but they will ask simple questions in a confusing way. Matt likes to focus on the content first, then questions later for the math section. Once the content is learned, the questions come much easier for students.

Reading - the reading section is difficult for many students because of the time limit. There are four passages and 40 questions to complete in 35 minutes. One great way to help with timing on the reading section is to increase your reading speed (words per minute). Another way is to focus on reading strategies (skimming passages, writing in margins, etc.). Different strategies work for different students depending on where their difficulties lie. Matt will work with each student to make sure they have the best strategy for their personal needs.

Science - the science section has very little to do with what students learn in their science classes. Instead, the ACT asks questions about tables, graphs, experiments, and conflicting viewpoints. There are different strategies for each of these science sections to save time and to make sure you are getting the answers correct. For example, writing I and D (independent and dependent variables) as soon as you see a table/graph will help you understand exactly what the table/graph is about.

Front Cover

Analyze your ACT is Matt's preferred material for tutoring. It has thorough explanation pages, hundreds of practice problems, and extremely accurate practice tests. Unlike other ACT books, Analyze your ACT helps find exactly where your mistakes lie. With Matt's help, you can solve those mistakes with ease.
