How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

The HSPT, or the High School Placement Test, is a comprehensive exam for eighth graders. The HSPT may be required if students plan to apply to certain private and parochial high schools. It is offered every fall and spring, and it is administered by individual private schools. Is your child beginning to prepare for the exam? Have they already started preparing? Are they finding it difficult to focus on the material? Varsity Tutors can help match them with a tutor. San Francisco, CA, HSPT tutors can help to guide your child through their test preparation.

There are five required sections on the exam: language, math, quantitative skills, reading, and verbal skills. There are also several optional sections that may be added to the test. HSPT tutors in San Francisco can help your student study more efficiently for the exam. Your child's personal tutor can plan sessions to focus strictly on the areas where your child most needs help. For example, if their trouble areas are language and reading, their tutor can give them customized study materials for those parts of the test. They can, at your student's pace, review common grammar issues, spelling, how to identify themes in a story passage, and vocabulary. They can also provide practice versions of the exam so your child will know what the real test looks like.

Session Summaries by HSPT Tutors

HSPT Tutoring review by Carolyn in San Francisco-Bay Area, CA
We practiced percent change, setting up proportions, and comparing fractions. She did great on all of these. Then she took a practice math test. She's fixed the timing problems she had last time, but she made a lot of minor errors. I'm going to give her next practice test to take during the week at a time when she feels rested and ready to go and see if that helps.

HSPT Tutoring review by Kelsey in San Francisco-Bay Area, CA
The student did a practice test for verbal, quantitative, and reading sections. She scored a 95% on verbal, 87% on quant, and 73% on reading. Overall, she has shown a lot of improvement. Her biggest issues are rushing through the reading and vocabulary. I gave her a list of the vocab words broken down by type to help with sorting.

HSPT Tutoring review by Kia in San Francisco-Bay Area, CA
We began the reading comprehension overview and looked at a few examples. There is a bit of a struggle with general and inference questions, but I am confident the student will continue to increase his scores. He was not able to answer all questions on the timed practice I gave him, so we need to focus on that. We also reviewed mean, median, and mode questions. The student got every one right.

HSPT Tutoring review by Pallavi in San Francisco-Bay Area, CA
The student and I worked on understanding critical reading passages and a little bit of math (specifically about exponents) towards the end of his session. The student did learn how to label statements as positive, negative, or neutral. Next time we will focus on sentence completion and math.

HSPT Tutoring review by David in San Francisco-Bay Area, CA
The student had her exam work packet. She had started the quantitative reasoning portion. We went through them all. Her long division is strong. Faster methods require some deeper understanding but the groundwork is there. Today we talked for while about the clock because it's good tool for calculation because it's ratios are consistently based on multiples of 60, it's a good bridge between decimals, percents, fractions and ratios, all of which she can do.
