MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin is hosting a one-day workshop on test-taking strategies for the ACT college entrance exam from 8 a.m.-noon, Aug. 26, at the UT Martin Jackson Center.

Students will learn to boost their scores and improve test performance by practicing test problems based on question frequency, difficulty, substantive knowledge, curriculum and alternative test-taking strategies. Alex Beene, college and ACT advisor for Fayette County Schools, will direct the course and offer quick, efficient tips for test-taking.

He has been named one of the top forty under 40 leaders in West Tennessee by the Jackson Sun, and his work can be viewed in various publications throughout the Southeastern United States. He received bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Mississippi, and has recently published his first book, “Lessons from a Southern Mother.”
