The University of Tennessee at Martin will offer two free workshop sessions for students wanting to take the ACT.
These online sessions will be offered from 5 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 28 and from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 5. Registration for these sessions is required and can be done at www.utm.edu/actprep.
This two-hour workshop is designed to give students an overview of the most pivotal tips for the test to increase their scores in all four subject areas.
“Whether a seasoned pro on the exam or an anxious newcomer, this class is designed to meet the needs of all high school students who take the test,” said UTM Director of University Outreach Jennifer Cooper. “This workshop is free, but limited to 100 participants. Students must be enrolled in a school in the state of Tennessee to participate.”
The sessions will be led by Alex Beene, the lead instructor at Tennessee Adult Education and a longtime UT Martin adjunct instructor.
Beene is widely recognized for his work in education. He has been helping high school students throughout Tennessee increase their ACT scores for more than a decade. Beene brings the key strategies and tips to each workshop students need to excel on the exam.
He has worked with more than 7,000 students over the last 10 years, helping them to improve their ACT scores and unlock thousands of dollars in additional scholarships.
The added ACT workshop sessions are made possible through a grant provided by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
Since UTM’s ACT Prep program launched in 2013, more than 5,000 students have been served and over $100 million in scholarship money has been earned by its participants.
