It’s Time to ACT!

Times they are a-changing, and students will soon arrive at a crucial moment in their lives as they weigh several options for post-High School education. Most students will be looking at college entrance exams such as ACT and SAT. From experience, I can definitely say that dealing with these tests, as well as thinking about colleges on my own was a daunting task. Here at Study Hut in Redondo Beach, we aim to make that journey a little easier. So if you’re looking for Redondo Beach ACT tutoring, you’ve come to the right place!

Redondo Beach ACT Tutoring

With our online ACT system and one-on-one sessions, students maintain a consistent weekly program to help improve study skills, test taking strategies, and content review.  We diagnose and focus on areas of weakness through content reviews to help increase the students’ confidence, and most importantly, increase their test taking skills. Many students make the mistake of thinking that mere content review is enough to succeed on these tests, but even the best students are not the best test takers; at Study Hut we strive to make sure that your student knows the tips and tricks to succeed on the ACT. So how does this work? First, we set you up with a free and brief consultation where we determine the Redondo Beach ACT tutoring course that’s right for you. Our packages range from 12 to 16 to 20 sessions total, with each session lasting two hours. After we set up the course that best suits your schedule and abilities, you start meeting with your tutor!

Students, past and present, love coming to Study Hut for a subject as demanding as the standardized testing simply because of the individual attention that they receive from the knowledgeable tutors here. Our tutors come from a variety of training and background from some of the top colleges like UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UC San Diego, and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Not in Redondo Beach? No problem! Redondo Beach Study Hut caters to all the surrounding South Bay and Palos Verdes areas, with students from Redondo Union High, PV and PV Peninsula High, Torrance High, for all the test prep and subject tutoring needs.

Palos Verdes ACT tutoring: Free ACT practice tests

April 10th, 2016

When is the right time to start thinking about college? Long before you apply, that’s for sure! Senior year is already filled with exams, extracurricular activities, volunteering, and AP classes to boost your college application – make sure you’re presenting yourself just as well with your ACT score! Don’t wait until senior year to start thinking about or studying for the ACT. Start your preparation, and then your Palos Verdes ACT tutoring, early with Study Hut Tutoring.

Your freshman and sophomore years of high school should focus on acclimating to the higher level of thinking expected of you at the high school level, but once you get to junior year, you should have this down. It’s then that you should start preparing for standardized testing like the ACT. By preparing with  Palos Verdes ACT tutoring, you can give yourself enough time to study and take (or retake) the test over second semester junior year and first semester senior year to ensure you achieve the highest score possible. By the time you’ve settled into your senior year, you should be relaxed enough about your ACT score to focus on writing stellar college applications.

Before you start your ACT preparation process at Study Hut Tutoring, you will take a free ACT diagnostic test. This test is a full-length practice ACT in a simulated testing environment. Diagnostic exams are given every Saturday morning from 8 am to noon, so there are plenty of opportunities to test alongside like-minded students. After the test is scored, you will receive a result sheet and attend a counseling session that breaks down each section of the test to pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. These two initial steps will give you a good foundation to start your Palos Verdes ACT tutoring if that is what’s right for you. From there, you will be paired with one of our trained ACT tutors for one-on-one tutoring, focusing on making those weaknesses strengths. Good at English, but struggle with Math and Science? We’ll work with you until you know the content forwards and backwards! Know the material, but need to work on how you take the test or finishing in time? No problem, our tutors are experts on test-taking strategy.  All the while, you will be taking more free practice tests to gauge your progress and update your ultimate goal score!

Palos Verdes ACT tutoring is accessible and successful. Fill out the form to the right, call, or email us at justin@studyhut.com to schedule your free diagnostic test!
