How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
Is your child preparing for the High School Placement Test (HSPT)? If you're unsure how to help them prepare for this important exam, you may want to think about finding a tutor for help. Varsity Tutors can help you find a Chicago HSPT tutor, who can help your student prepare for this 2 hour and 20-minute exam. The tutor can work with your child either online or in person, at a time and place determined by you. They can be flexible to your family's hectic schedule, avoiding the added stress of you trying to coordinate schedules.
Perhaps your child excels at the verbal skills section (synonyms, antonyms, vocabulary, etc.), but needs some help with quantitative math section (geometric numbers, non-geometric comparisons, etc.). No matter which areas your child needs extra help with, their private tutor can work with them. HSPT tutors in Chicago can go over study guides and practice exams with your child to help pinpoint their weakest test sections, be it verbal, reading comprehension, writing, or quantitative math. They can then go over these areas with your student at a pace that is most comfortable for their learning needs. Your child can ask as many questions of their tutor as they need and slowly go over concepts that confuse them. On the flip side, they can breeze through areas they understand for a quick review, making their tutoring time as efficient and effective as possible. Their tutor can also help them with the timing aspect of the test (30 minutes for math and verbal sections, 40 minutes for reading, and 25 minutes for writing).
Your child's tutor can also work with them in a style that they understand. The tutor can adapt their teaching style to whatever style your child learns in best. This may change throughout the session based on the concepts being covered, but their tutor is flexible and can adapt to this as well. Chicago, Illinois, HSPT tutoring is focused on the individual student's learning goals and needs. This means that your child's understanding of concepts covered on the HSPT is the main focus on the sessions. Your child's private tutor is also experienced and can help make studying a fun time. Some students are not excited about the prospect of studying for a large exam, and therefore, are not fully engaged in the learning process. Because their tutor works with them one-on-one, they can get to know your student's interests and personality. This allows them to relate lessons and topics to real-life scenarios and the personal interests of your child. By doing so, they can help your child stay engaged in the material and enjoy their studying time.
