How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

The Scholastic Testing Service High School Placement Test (HSPT) is given to students in the eighth grade who are applying to certain private and parochial high schools. As your child's admission into a top Catholic school as well as their chance at receiving a scholarship award is based on their score, it is important that they score as high as possible. If you would like to give your child an edge over the other students who are also taking the HSPT, then consider letting your child work with a personal tutor who will be hand-selected just for them. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors are experienced at connecting students in Waltham, MA, with HSPT tutors.

Varsity Tutors can assist students in connecting with a tutor in Waltham who could potentially help them understand the concepts of the HSPT. As an expert in the HSPT, the tutor can know just what skills, tips, and strategies your child could need to know and utilize on the exam. They may be able to try to help your child prepare for the five sections (Verbal, Quantitative, Reading, Mathematics, and Language skills) by planning lessons that are engaging and efficient. By evaluating your child's individual learning style, they may be able to teach your child in a way that could make them understand the material easily and without frustration. The relaxed environment could allow your child to converse freely with the tutor and ask as many questions as they need to thoroughly understand the content being presented. You can choose whatever location that you wish for sessions to take place. The Waltham Public Library and your child's study hall are both public options where sessions can take place. If your child is more comfortable meeting in the comfort of their own home, then that can also be arranged, as well as through our face-to-face online learning platform. The choice is up to you! Call us today to find professional HSPT tutors in Waltham to try to help you develop a study plan that is catered to your child's skills, abilities, and learning style.

HSPT Tutoring review by Christopher in Waltham, MA
This was basically just an introductory session for the ACT English, Reading and Science Reasoning sections. The student found the test in general a lot easier than the SAT. We plan to go into more depth in the next session.

HSPT Tutoring review by Raffaele in Waltham, MA
The student and I discussed the format of the new SAT. We discussed how it is completely passage driven, with no more sentence completion, sentence errors, or sentence correction questions. We discussed the fact that there is no longer a penalty for guessing. We discussed the need for and the importance of learning "close reading" of the passages. We also discussed the time frame for each section and the number and types of questions each section contains. We then specifically discussed the Reading portion of the test, the types of questions asked, and what information to look for. We also practiced some of the question types in this session, including questions dealing with the following topics: deciphering statements and implications and applying inferences to new scenarios.
