Regardless of the learning plan you choose, you can be confident in the preparation and support you receive from Manhattan Review. 

The ACT is intended to reflect what students learned during high school and is composed of four multiple-choice tests—English, mathematics, reading, and science—as well as an optional writing portion. The English section requires a student to revise and edit a provided text; in addition, short essays in various genres offer rhetorical situations that must be considered before appropriate responses are selected. The mathematics section of the ACT assesses a student's knowledge of basic formulas and computational skills. The reading section is designed to measure a student's ability to closely read a passage, engage in logical reasoning about the passage using evidence, and combine information from multiple sources to produce specific answers. Skills such as locating and interpreting details, understanding the sequence of events, determining the meaning of context-dependent words, and analyzing claims and arguments are all assessed. 

The science section of the ACT measures skills required to understand and work in the natural sciences, including interpretation, analysis, evaluation, and problem-solving, to name a few. The score range for each of the four required tests is 1 to 36. A composite score is created by taking the average of the four test scores and rounding it to the nearest whole number. In general, a "good" ACT score is any score falling at or above the 75th percentile, which equates to a composite score of 24. It must be stated that a "good" score is not nearly strong enough to gain admittance into a leading college or university, and among the most selective institutions of higher education, incoming students routinely obtain a composite score in the range of 33 to 35. In order to be considered a competitive applicant among the leading colleges, it is imperative to demonstrate a strong performance on the ACT.

Meet a Beijing ACT Tutor: Ronald R.

Ronald was born in the United Kingdom and moved to Washington, DC, when his father was offered a different position in the company he worked for. "I wasn't excited about moving, but as long as there were still libraries and places to buy books, I decided I'd manage," laughs Ronald. An avid reader from an early age, Ronald was quick to spot grammatical errors, plot holes, or other writing-related mistakes in the stories he read. "I didn't grow up dreaming about becoming an editor," he admits. "But once I learned I could actually get paid for reading other people's writing, I knew I'd found the job for me." Ronald approached his school about creating a peer tutoring program, and he offered to be the first to sign up to help his classmates in areas they didn't feel strong in academically. Through the program he established, he helped fellow students brainstorm ideas for essays, showed them the difference between a first and second draft, and proofread their papers for errors they might have missed. The peer tutoring program was so successful that it grew to include more tutors for various subjects the following year, and Ronald was thrilled to see people getting the additional support they needed. 

Ronald set a goal of becoming a professional book editor and wanted to obtain the best possible education in order to help others bring their creative literary projects to life. After completing practice versions of both the SAT and the ACT, Ronald realized he had performed significantly better on the ACT. He decided to take a group prep course to prepare for the exam, and he loved working with a professional tutor. "I'm so used to being the tutor, it was really nice to have someone else guiding me and laying out the study plan," he shares. "Learning how to interpret and answer questions was a lot like proofreading…you can't lose sight of the big picture, but you have to take the time to focus on details because they ultimately create the big picture." Ronald's hard work and dedication paid off when he scored in the 98th percentile on the ACT. His score, combined with his impressive high school grades and extracurricular activities, resulted in an offer of admission to Columbia University. "Columbia was my first choice because they're in the very heart of the book publishing industry," says Ronald, who loved every moment spent completing his undergraduate degree. After graduating, Ronald worked his way up through the publishing house ranks, starting as an intern and then moving up to an assistant editor before becoming a senior editor with significant freedom to choose and champion various books and literary projects. 

While Ronald loved collaborating with publishers and authors and helping books transform from drafts to completed manuscripts, he also realized he could do his work from any location, and when his wife was offered a job with an investment banking firm in Beijing, he was excited to make the move. "I knew I could help people write, and I missed working directly with students like in my high school days," Ronald shares, "which led me to combine the two. I developed a few ACT prep online workshops showing how important a solid knowledge of grammar was, as well as how to break down tricky or confusing questions so that you understood them." The staff at the Manhattan Review Beijing office were impressed by Ronald's ambition, and he soon joined the team as an instructor. His methodical approach to teaching is a big hit among his students, who appreciate his ability to summarize lengthy paragraphs of information in memorable ways, as well as his knowledge of breaking down complex problems into smaller, solvable questions. When he isn't editing the next international best-seller or helping students prepare for their own ACT success, Ronald can be found attending literary lectures at various Beijing universities, wandering local bookshops looking for hidden treasures, and playing videos games with his friends.
