THE BEST ACT TUTORS
PRIVATE ACT® TUTORS
The ACT exam is designed to assess a student’s academic achievements in four key areas: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. The ACT also has an optional 40-minute writing test that students can elect to take as well. Besides assessing a student’s current knowledge, the ACT also helps indicate students’ college readiness. Final test scores are based on the number of correct answers provided. There are no penalties for incorrect answers or guesswork.
