Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
The students worked on their Chemistry review sheets. They did great other than needing some help on formula derivations, which we covered thoroughly. Another major focus was stoichiometry and balancing complex equations.
Today by the parent's request we continued to review some of the vocabulary the student learned. We went over numbers, days of the week, and animals. He is having trouble learning the new animals so I will I try to bring printed pictures to our next session. I have also been trying to keep him in the habit of forming sentences in French. I have been reminding him to say "je ne sais pas" (I don't know), and "je vois..." (I see...). Today I also introduced "il y a..." (there is...). He recognized "il y a" from a sentence he learned: "il y a du soleil" (it is sunny). Since we will be working together on back to back days, I plan on introducing new words and concepts on Wednesdays and reviewing them on Thursdays.
This session went well. We spent a majority of this session going over how to apply my checklist to the English/writing section. I want him to see how using the checklist will help him ensure that he does not get thrown off by picking the answer that 'sounds right'. Next, I will have him do some practice work in time for our next session tomorrow. Since we only went over English today, I will time and test him tomorrow, but the emphasis will be on reading and math. I want to be sure he gets a feel for the timing of the exam and I also want him to refresh his memory on the way that each section should be approved.
How can a Varsity Tutors tutor help you master the HSPT?
Many students likely do not choose to review for the HSPT, or the High School Placement Test. While this exam assesses concepts that students should already be familiar with, reviewing content is recommended, as it may have been quite a while since students were last expected to answer certain types or problems or use certain skills.
But what to study first? The HSPT is a test with many sections and even more question types—where should one begin studying? With the help of the HSPT tutoring offered by Varsity Tutors in St. Louis County and the surrounding area, you can structure your studying efficiently, without forgetting to review any crucial concepts, and gain expert advice from a person who has scored very well on the HSPT.
No matter which section of the HSPT is causing you concern, your personal tutor can walk you through how to solve each of its problem types. Having been successful on the HSPT him- or herself, your tutor can share helpful strategies for each section and its questions that can really make a difference on test day. Your tutor’s expert knowledge of the HSPT’s format and the content it tests will be complemented by his or her skill at explaining complex concepts so that they seem simple and intuitive. The lesson plans your tutor prepares for each of your HSPT tutoring sessions can be tailored to focus on just the concepts that you find difficult and need to work on. Also, because we know your time is valuable, your tutor can travel to you and meet at whichever location at whatever time best suits your schedule.
Want to prepare for the HSPT with the guidance of a tutor who has already done extremely well on it? Contact Varsity Tutors today about the HSPT tutoring options available in the St. Louis region.
