As an author, an English minor, and a communications devotee, I absolutely love the ACT English section. The English section is comprised of multiple choice questions. An essay is optional. Students who work hard and study the grammar, usage, and mechanics review I give them, can look forward to improving their writing score a great deal. We focus on the areas of standard written English that are most frequently tested in the ACT English section, such as subject-verb agreement, ambiguous pronouns, parallel construction, dangling modifiers, coordination and subordination, etc. It’s simple and easy. If the students put in the work, and if they start their review in a timely manner, they can expect to reap the rewards of an improved ACT English score. I recommend starting 10-12 weeks prior to their desired test date, but we can accomplish a great deal in a shorter time window if the student is motivated and devotes sufficient time to study. I give the students a template for writing the essay, with recommendations concerning the amount of time to devote to each area of essay-writing.
