ACT and SAT scores not only predictor of college success

For admissions offices that are strapped for time, test scores can provide a place to start to identify whether or not a student will be successful, but da Silva also said there has to be a commitment to reviewing each application and reading the students’ stories as well. “At the end of the day, that’s what it’s about: Whether or not the student will be successful within my curriculum, and keeping in mind that you don’t want to shut the door,” she said.

How to Get Higher Reading Scores

Does your high-schooler need better reading and English scores on standardized test such as the ACT, SAT and PSAT? Find a high interest novel or even a magazine and give it to your child to read during winter break. Read the same book yourself and every day ask your child questions along the lines of who what when where why and how about the plot.

About Your Tutor

I am a certified teacher, having taught ACT prep, as well as run my own tutoring business, for eight years. My certification areas are English 6-12 with a reading endorsement, and ESOL endorsement and differentiated learning. I have been trained in AP Lang and Lit. I am also certified in business education.
I primarily tutor in ACT or SAT verbal and science as well as essay. Once students achieve the score they need, they often come back for help in college applications and the corresponding essays.
I also offer homework help, study skills, reading strategies and English, literature and writing tutoring. Additionally, I have had success helping students prepare for AP exams.
Another service I offer is teacher mentoring for struggling and new teachers. I have been certified as a Teacher Leader by my district (in Florida) and by Solution Tree. I now offer these mentoring services primarily when administration sees the potential in a newly hired teacher, but finds they need extra help. I specialize in classroom management, using data to drive instruction, and effective lesson planning.

What’s on the ACT English test?

The ACT English test is 45 minutes long with 75 items. Grammar and Usage makes up 16% of the test, Sentence Structure is 24%, and Punctuation is 13%. The rest of the English test comes under the heading Rhetorical Skills. Strategy (Author’s purpose) makes up 16%, Organization (development, passage structure) is 15% and Style (word choice, tone) is 16%.

I have a proven lesson that I created that teaches the sentence structure and punctuation portions and covers about 30% of the items on the test. This is just one of the lessons your student will master in a 1.5 hour session with me.

We can do Skype and in-person sessions to help your student prepare for the June 4 SAT or the June 11 ACT. 985.234.9184 to learn more.ACT english
