The ACT English section is arguably the section able to be improved the most on the ACT. Its questions are comprised of basic usage including comma usage, compound sentence punctuation, subject-verb agreement, and possession rules as well as stylistic rules such as the rhetorical purpose of a passage, paragraph, sentence, or transition word. I teach your student the critical rules of usage necessary for the ACT and specific strategies for tacking rhetorical questions raised by the exam. Once a student has mastered these topics, there is very little keeping them from scoring very well on this first of the "big four" sections of the ACT. Each student is given a binder which will archive all of the exams taken and catalog the errors they've made with specific notes about the topic like "comma usage" or "rhetoric of a transition word" instead of broad generalizations made by many other tutoring companies. Lessons are given on the topics with which they struggle most and additional assignments are provided to ensure they retain and can use the information they've been given. Their progress can be tracked over time, and their score progression can be a very rewarding sign of their progress!
Daniel has been tutoring my son for nearly one year now, and the results have been transformative! My son had an apathetic attitude towards his studies before he began tutorials with Daniel, but afterwards, he became excited about his performance, earning A's in nearly all of his classes by the end of the school year. We are very happy with our son's success and look forward to continuing to work with Daniel.
