How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is a challenging and important private school entrance exam. If your child could use some help preparing for this critical test, Varsity Tutors could help you make your child's HSPT study sessions more productive by finding you a tutor in Gilbert, AZ.

Many private and parochial high schools use the HSPT to evaluate prospective students. Individual schools administer their own HSPT tests to 8th grade students once in the fall and once in the spring. The standard test includes 298 multiple choice questions that the student has 2 hours and 20 minutes to answer. That standard test has five sections that test quantitative reasoning, language skills, mathematical ability, writing skill, and reading. Individual schools administer the test so they can customize it to suit their needs in a couple of ways. There are optional, standardized sections covering mechanical aptitude, the Catholic religion, and a few other subjects. Schools can also add a custom section they created. The scores on those added sections are not added to the base HSPT score.

Session Summaries by HSPT Tutors

Gilbert, AZ HSPT tutoring
We went over probability, algebra, word problems, angles and lines, triangles, circles, and coordinate geometry. The student did a really good job with math today; my main recommendation is that she be sure to underline *what the question is asking* as she gets to each question, and before she bubbles in her answer, double-check that the answer she got is the answer to the question she was asked. We did a little work on critical reading as well, discussing some strategies for finding the main idea and spotting trap answers.

We discussed the type of critical reading section questions that ask for the best meaning of a word, provided its context. The focus of these questions is to figure out the author's attitude and voice through the passage, and be able to back that up with lines and diction. We went through one critical reading practice section, one writing section, and we went over vocabulary. We compiled a list of comprehensive writing errors for the student to keep as a primer before his PSAT.

Today we focused on reading passages, specifically the longer passage and longer comparison passages. For tomorrow's session, the student should find 15-20 words he is unfamiliar with (from anywhere) and write down each word and definition. Tomorrow will be a vocab review day.

We focused mainly on SAT Essay writing, again talking about including lots of analysis and structure in the essay. We also briefly went over the SAT reading section. Great progress was made in math and writing sections from last time.

The session focused on functions, algebraic substitution of expressions containing multiple variables, and applications of geometric concepts. The student is doing well. I gave him some additional homework practice problems to help him fully internalize the concepts before next week's exam.

We finished covering some of the math from last time, and later moved on to writing. We talked about what to try to do while writing the essay and looked at some sample essays and critiqued them. Then we looked at the grammar section. She is very strong in the writing section. I left her with writing a 20 minute essay, and if this essay is good, I am confident she can score in the 95th percentile or above in writing. There were no concerns for today.
