Prepping for the ACT? It is important to make sure that you are prepared for the test, before test day. One of the best ways to get ready for the environment, timing, and questions that you’ll experience on testing day is by taking a pretest. Act pretest’s are available among the many test prep companies, the quality of each is thus correlated with the quality of each test prep company. The degree of variation between the ACT pretests can be quite significant at times. After spending some time looking at the various pretests offered by a proliferation of companies, I stumbled across the Star Tutors website.
Star Tutors provides both on location and virtual test prep, as well as pretests. No matter where you are, a proctored pretest is available through Star Tutors. If for some reason you can not attend a scheduled practice test date (either virtually or in person) there are self proctoring options available. Students should note the following instructions for self proctoring based on the Star Tutors website; English- 45 minutes, Math- 60 minutes, a 10 minute break, Reading- 35 minutes, concluded by Science- 35 minutes.
In an effort to prepare for your ACT pretest and the test as a whole, Star Tutors provides clients with several ways to prepare. Options available for preparing for the ACT pretest are: virtual classroom, in-person, one-on-one, and a self study option. The virtual classroom provides the most flexible option for students preparing for the ACT, each class is broadcast live via Facebook Live. The virtual course option includes 10 class sessions and 2 full length practice tests w/ included analysis and a guidebook for the cost of $399. The In- Classroom option allows students to study in a more typical environment, class room sizes are limited ensuring each student receives any help needed. It is important to note that the in-person class is only available in the Greater Los Angeles area. The one-on-one classes provide the most tailor made test prep for students, this program allows for enhanced analysis of strengths and weaknesses as well as greater customization based on an individual students needs. The self study option is available from the app store, and allows students to prep from anywhere! The StarU app includes 20 hours of free ACT content, along with the ability to receive real time tutoring from a live tutor.
