San Mateo HSPT Tutoring FAQ

Few tests in 8th grade are as challenging as the High School Placement Test, or HSPT. Private and parochial schools tend to be very competitive and selective. Getting your child into one of these takes effort, including readying them for the HSPT, and ensuring they are up to speed on every subject. Success requires months of preparation and studying for this 2.5-hour, nearly 300-question exam. You want to offer your student encouragement, but you can't expect them to be totally prepared by themselves. Varsity Tutors could help make your child's HSPT study sessions more productive, by finding them a tutor in San Mateo, CA.

The tutor's goal is to focus on any weaknesses, and maximize the chances of scoring as close to an 800 as possible. Also, the instructor can focus on the specific version of the HSPT your child is preparing for. The exam covers language, math, reading, verbal, and quantitative skills. There is a lot to cover. Working with a tutor well in advance of the exam can help address any areas of confusion, so your child can be ready and confident when the time comes.

Not only can an independent tutor immediately find and focus on weaknesses. They can also customize each lesson accordingly, using proven test prep materials that have worked time and again in the past. Alternative teaching methods are available, and the tutor can continuously assess your child's progress through practice tests, assignments, and even homework. In short, Varsity Tutors will match your student with a HSPT tutor in San Mateo, who will motivate them to reach beyond their HSPT goals.

Call our educational directors to find your child an expert HSPT tutor in San Mateo, to strive to ensure they are ready on test day. It's possible to schedule tutoring at the most convenient times. Your child can be prepared through evening or weekend lessons, at their home or other suitable location in your area. Tutors also offer online instruction; meeting face-to-face via a live learning platform is often preferred and productive for many students.

The exam is multiple choice, but grammar, vocabulary, problem solving, algebra, and even simple arithmetic can be topics your student's tutor will need to focus on. We could help your child find a professional tutor in San Mateo, CA, to help them build upon their strengths and potentially eliminate their weaknesses on the HSPT. Whether it's shoring up any trouble spots or offering test-taking advice, the tutor will do all in their power that matches your child's needs
