We've gathered some of the most frequently asked questions about ACT tutoring and hope the answers help you determine whether such a program is right for your child. 

Why choose ACT tutoring? The ACT is a high stakes test that assesses your child's ability as a snapshot
in time. Years of hard work preparing for college admissions can be negatively affected by a weak ACT score. Investing in ACT tutoring provides your child with the extra practice, knowledge, and confidence necessary for success on the exam. The content and format of the ACT exam may feel overwhelming if you are working to prepare your child on your own. How do you know exactly what to study? How much emphasis should you place on each content area? What is the best way to prepare for the specific format of the exam? The professional tutors at Huntington Learning Centers are specifically trained to help students prepare for the exam. Through a careful combination of assessment, instruction, and practice your child will gain the necessary knowledge and skills to prepare for the exam. 

What are the benefits of tutoring at Huntington Learning Centers? The main goal of the ACT tutoring programs at Huntington Learning Centers is to prepare students for the rigors of the ACT exam focusing on academic knowledge, test taking skills, and time management skills.

How will tutoring complement my child's high school education? Your child is learning a lot in high school and the mastered skills and acquired knowledge will be incredibly beneficial on the ACT exam. Using careful assessments, we determine what your child already knows and what content areas remain a struggle. We'll work to close the gaps and strengthen your child's academic foundation. The tutoring sessions also expose students to the exam's format and teach successful test taking tips. Many of these lessons are also applicable to other exams your child will take during both high school and college. The benefits will continue to pay off over time.
