It may also be used to determine scholarship awards. It is taken by students in Grade 8 in anticipation of enrolling in their new school for Grade 9. If you feel that your student's test prep could use a boost, working with an HSPT tutor may help them improve their study skills and self-confidence leading up to the exam.

Online HSPT Tutoring review by Carolyn
We reviewed a bit from last time, focusing on arithmetic with negative numbers and her vocabulary words for this week. Then we went over spelling rules and did some practice exercises. Then we talked about reading comprehension strategies and did some practice.

Online HSPT Tutoring review by Danielle
The student completed another timed math section, saw much improvement with his test taking skills. Accuracy and understanding are also much better. Practice test is this weekend, so I told him to practice as much as possible from both books before then. Worked with the student some more on SAT Math. Told him to do as many more problems as she could before we meet again Thursday and bring any questions he may have for me at that time.

Online HSPT Tutoring review by Suzanne
I explained some HSPT test-taking strategies to the student and then gave him a diagnostic quiz to see what areas he needed to work on. We started with the verbal skills section, and I taught him some useful strategies for narrowing down answer choices and guessing the meaning of words he doesn't know. We also made a list of words he doesn't know so I could make him some vocabulary flashcards to study in future sessions. By the end of the lesson, he was getting many more questions right and seemed to be thinking more carefully about his answer choices.

Online HSPT Tutoring review by Molly
Today was our first lesson. We began with a review of the test structure, then jumped into the math section. The student has very strong simple math skills that will help her greatly on the math section. Over the next few sessions we will work through the harder math topics. Next we moved to the Language Skills section. We will practice ways to identify errors that don't immediately stand out.

Online HSPT Tutoring review by Mary
Today we went over the verbal section the student did for homework, and we went through a language section and part of a mathematics section. I am having him finish the mathematics section for homework. Math seems to be his strength, so we will focus more on language than anything else as we prepare for his exam, but we will hit every subject at least a little bit.
