How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

Private schools across Portland administer the High School Placement Test (HSPT) to prospective students. If your child is preparing for the nearly 300-question, 2.5 hour exam, they may be quite anxious. There are multiple subjects covered during this time, spanning years of topics they've learned. Some topics may need freshening up. Your child may need to overcome some subject weaknesses before they may work to reach their goals on this test. Varsity Tutors may help your child find Portland, OR, tutors to help hone their HSPT skills and raise their chances of success on the exam.

Sure, there are classes to try to help your student prepare, but they don't offer the individualized, one-on-one instruction that tutoring does. A personal instructor may target each lesson to your child's most frustrating areas of confusion. At the same time, they may apply one of various teaching methods based on how your student goes about learning. Numerous teaching materials and tools may be integrated to solidify your child's understanding of key topics such as geometry, vocabulary, synonyms and antonyms, analogies, and reading comprehension.

Session Summaries by HSPT Tutors

HSPT Tutoring review by Carolyn in Portland, OR
We practiced percentage problems including percent increase, decrease, and word problems; finding factors and multiples; solving multi-step algebra equations; and word problems for finding averages. We then talked about how to effectively estimate when doing long division and practiced. We've worked on all these concepts before, and she remembered most of them with very little prompting, doing much better with all of them.

HSPT Tutoring review by Kylie in Portland, OR
The student and I continued to work on the language arts section of the test. He is very concerned about the time limit, so I have timed him on all of his practice exercises. He's working on slowing down and not worrying that he will not finish in time.

HSPT Tutoring review by Kia in Portland, OR
The student took a Mathematics practice test, and scored right where we want him to be. I noticed that he really focused on skipping the harder questions, and answering the ones he knew first, which greatly increased his score. He then took a usage practice test, which he scored lower on. He needs help to not just change the sentences, instead of identify the actual grammatical errors.

HSPT Tutoring review by Megan in Portland, OR
First, the student and I went over Greek and Latin root words to help with vocabulary. Then we reviewed math tips and tricks for the test. We discussed strategies and timing for each part of the test. Then I had the student go over 4 practice sets on the website, to continue practicing his use of testing strategies. Some things to note were the fact that the student is paying attention to the timing and seems to be confident about the test. I left him with the homework assignment of more practice test sets online. I had no concerns for this session.

HSPT Tutoring review by Marline in Portland, OR
Today we went through the packet I had on numbers sense. We finished all of the multiple choice questions together and after a little struggle with some of the word problems, I thought it was necessary to go through percent change, markup, and discounts. We spent about half an hour going through some examples together before we went back to the packet. We were able to complete two more word problems and I gave her the last two for homework. She struggled with percents but we were able to work through them together and she understood it when we were finished. She's a great student and always tries her best!
