How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT Reading?

The High School Placement Test's reading section contains 62 multiple-choice questions given over a short 25 minutes. The test provides passages that students must read before answering groups of questions related to each passage. These questions examine whether or not students have mastered a wide variety of academic skills and language arts concepts, from identifying the central theme of the passage and making inferences to picking up on key details, imagery, and aspects of authorial style. Because of the broad range of skills required for success on the HSPT reading section, some test-takers may have trouble demonstrating their full academic potential on this portion of the test. The vast amount of material that must be reviewed and question styles that must be practiced can leave students feeling lost and bewildered before ever entering the testing room, even if their grades have been high in academic coursework.

If your child is preparing for the HSPT and would like more assistance in learning how to approach and conquer the Reading section of the test, look no further than Varsity Tutors.

After evaluating where your child's HSPT reading strengths and weaknesses lie, your tutor can craft a tailored teaching plan to fit your child's individual needs and goals. HSPT reading tutoring can help your child build upon the foundational skills necessary for success on this important test. From defining words based on their contexts to identifying the parts of a passage's argument, an experienced HSPT reading tutor can help guide your child through practice problems and in-session work geared toward cultivating his or her most essential reading abilities.

Online HSPT Reading Tutoring review by Ishita
Today we focused primarily on the writing section. We went over some ways to approach the essay, and worked through some writing exercises to help him with his sentence structure and descriptive language. We also did some exercises on the correcting sentences parts, reviewing grammar and punctuation rules along the way.

Online HSPT Reading Tutoring review by Zachary
Student 1, 2, and I started studying the ACT Science section in greater detail today. We discussed the different types of passages and some similarities and differences between them, then ran part of a practice test while cleaving to the first-pass/second-pass system.

Online HSPT Reading Tutoring review by Hannah
We spent 30 minutes reviewing vocabulary strategies; I gave the student a packet of SAT words to study and ideas for how to set up flash cards. We then spent 30 minutes on a second critical reading test, going over the 5-step method for the vocabulary fill in the blanks. We spent 30 additional minutes going over the student's practice essay with the idea that he will re-write it with the same prompt for next week, with a strong thesis, topic sentences, and focus on specifics rather than broad ideas. We had 30 minutes left after that so we returned to the reading practice and finished that section of the practice test.

Online HSPT Reading Tutoring review by Chelci
The student practiced with some of the natural science reading passages, and did about average for her. We then utilized a few strategies, such as answering passage questions directly from memory, and these seemed to help her tremendously. We did some basic graph reading skill review and the student was scoring 100% on each science passage after this review. We will focus on reading skills as they relate to both the natural science reading passages and the dueling scientists science passage

Online HSPT Reading Tutoring review by Michael
Introduced the student to the SAT and worked on a few problems from verbal and math to get a baseline for his strengths and weaknesses. He is going to need a lot of practice with the critical reading passages. His math intuition is generally quite good, but he will need to practice SAT style questions so he gets accustomed to word problems and answering the question posed, rather than simply solving for "x." I will also help him review examples from history and literature to incorporate into the essay.

Online HSPT Reading Tutoring review by Joseph
During this session, I reviewed the math and English passages I had assigned the student last week. We went over questions that she found difficult and I noted subjects I would review with her in the future. I then went over basic grammar rules on commas, independent and dependent clauses, and run on sentences. I assigned the student more sections to complete.
