The UTM Office of University Outreach is offering a series of in-person ACT prep courses for students who are preparing for the test at the Martin, Parsons Center, and Somerville Center campuses. Additionally, they are offering a series of online ACT prep courses throughout the winter for students who do not want to participate in person.
The ACT super-score skill-up workshops, part of the ACT success tactics series, will help students define the challenges of individual subjects and give them the tools to efficiently problem solve.
The in-person sessions are four hours long and cover all four topics related to the test. Cost to attend is $50 per person. The sessions will be held on the following dates, from 9 a.m.- 1 p.m. unless otherwise noted:
• Somerville: Feb. 1.
• Martin: Feb. 4, March 4, and April 8.
• Parsons: Feb. 28 (4-8 p.m.), March 11, and June 3.
Online workshops will be held on six separate days, with students having the option of attending math and science or English and reading sessions. The online courses will be held over Zoom, so participants must have access to a computer with audio and video capabilities. The Zoom courses are each $25 and last for two hours.
An ACT algebra and geometry workshop will also be offered online from 5-7 p.m., on Feb. 9 or Mar. 2. Students will review formulas and practice how to utilize them on the test. The workshop also includes a comprehensive review of the types of geometry and algebra problems covered on the exam.
UTM adjunct faculty member Alex Beene will teach both the online and in-person courses. He currently serves as a lead instructor for the Tennessee Audit Education in three counties and primarily works with rising high school juniors and seniors needing academic help with major standardized testing.
