How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
The High School Placement Test, or HSPT, is commonly administered by Catholic high schools. Many of these schools heavily weigh the scores of this exam when considering students' applications. The HSPT examines students' abilities in areas such as math, language, and reading. If your student is hoping to get into a Catholic high school soon, it is vital for them to do well on the HSPT. A skilled professional tutor can help your child work toward their goals. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with Boston, Massachusetts, HSPT tutoring today.
The HSPT consists of about 300 questions and your child will be given two and a half hours to complete it. The exam is only given two times a year, in the fall and in the spring, so you want to make sure that your child is ready when the time comes to take the exam. If your child struggles with math concepts that are on the test, including algebra, geometry, and problem-solving, a private HSPT tutor can help them prepare. They will also be tested on things such as reading comprehension, logic, Catholic religion, and spelling. You can help them prepare by finding a tutor to work with them one-on-one. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors are available to help you find Boston HSPT tutors today.
Everyone learns better in different ways. Your child's tutor can provide multiple different techniques and tools to help them learn the material at hand. If your child is someone who feels uncomfortable raising their hand in class to ask questions, they may benefit from having a tutor. The tutor can answer their questions during their session, eliminating the need to feel embarrassed and the potential of waiting in a long line after class to get an answer. You may wonder periodically how your child is doing in school or with test preparation. The tutor can send you frequent up-to-date progress reports that can tell you what areas they need more help in and which areas they are ready to move on from. HSPT tutors in Boston can help you understand your child's progress.
When and where tutoring sessions can take place is up to your discretion. If your child learns better through in person communication, you can schedule the sessions in your home, or at whatever location is the most comfortable and convenient for you and your child. If scheduling in person meetings are too difficult, you can schedule a face-to-face meeting through the live interactive online platform.

I worked through some more math problems with the second student. I asked her to complete another practice test section or two before our next meeting."
