Perfect Scores: SAT 1600, ACT 36, GRE Quant 170, Chemistry/MathL2 800

ACT English requires two skills: punctuation and vocabulary. It's similar to SAT Writing, but it doesn't have any vocabulary questions, and you get less time per problem. Punctuation is straightforward to learn. The ACT recycles the same kinds of English questions over and over again, and if you practice the rules, you'll eventually get all of the questions right. You'll need to bring in your ACT Reading skills to do questions involving adding/deleting sentences, modifying phrases to make them more relevant, and putting sentences in order. ACT Reading is easier than SAT Reading, so you migh [more]

Harvey Mudd Grad Coaches Mindful Learning

As a professional ACT tutor, I focus on the moment-by-moment experience my students have while doing each specific type of problem this test offers. By noticing where they get in their own way, my students develop their own techniques and learn how to teach themselves. I fully expect, for example, that in the English section, you will discover that you need to apply the Process of Elimination to every single question. I serve merely as a guide for this self-discovery and have seen phenomenal results with this approach. [more]
