How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
The HSPT is taken by students in eighth grade who are applying for admittance into a private high school. The test is administered by the individual schools your child may apply to, and therefore it can be different for each school if they are applying to more than one. All HSPT exams have sections on math, language, quantitative skills, reading, and verbal schools. Schools may also choose to add on sections for science, mechanical aptitude, the Catholic religion, or other sections that they design themselves. This is likely to be the first standardized test of this kind that your child could take, and it is important that they prepare so they can get their best score when they take it. Varsity Tutors can find your child an experienced HSPT tutor in Bethesda, MD, with expertise and depth of knowledge about the exam who can try to help students at all levels.
All of the tutors that Varsity Tutors can connect your son or daughter with in Bethesda are skilled in teaching the HSPT. Their specific knowledge could benefit your child as they ask questions and are able to receive immediate answers. This is better than in a classroom setting, where your child may have multiple questions, but only be allowed to ask one or two in each study session.
Varsity Tutors could help your child make their HSPT study sessions more productive by finding a tutor for them in Bethesda. By assessing your child and focusing on their specific needs, their tutor will spend as much time as necessary on the aspects of the exam your child needs extra help in, and will not waste time on subjects your child is already comfortable with. In addition to working on specific content that will be on the exam, their tutor will work with them on the format of questions and how to find a great answer for each type of question, as well as the pacing they will need to keep up in order to get through all the test questions in the time they are given.
Your child's tutor will be flexible in being able to meet you at whatever time and whatever location is convenient for your family. If your child would prefer not to meet in person for any reason, they can work with their tutor face-to-face online using our live learning platform.
