How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

If your desire is for your child to attend a private or parochial high school then the HSPT exam, or High School Placement Test, should be on your eighth grader's to-do list. These schools use the HSPT test results to determine admission and also scholarship awards. Preparation is very important because the 200-800 scoring range is compiled, giving your student a percentile rank. This rank is how your student is compared to other students, so that schools can choose the best candidate. An expert tutor can give your student an edge over the other applicants. Try to assure that your child is potentially ready for the HSPT exam by contacting our educational directors in Kendall, FL, to get the help needed today.

The exam is comprehensive and is often the first test of this type your child could take. The test has 300 questions and is timed. Each student is given two and a half hours to complete. There are five required sections and one optional section that isn't figured into the percentile rank. The results of the optional section are forwarded to the schools you request. Varsity Tutors is happy to try to help you find an independent HSPT tutor in Kendall, FL.

Session Summaries by HSPT Tutors

Kendall, FL HSPT tutoring
As this was the first session, we started off discussing and reviewing the student's reading experience and the books he likes as well as his writing with his previous tutor. He has the beginning of a short creative book of fantasy/science fiction that shows an impressive grasp of language and plot. We then proceeded to work through thesis statements, topic sentences, and essay structure before working through three different practice writing questions and then looking at some of the sample responses and scores. The student already has a good grasp of the kinds of questions and responses that will be expected of him. As homework he will choose a practice writing question to respond to. This time there are no time constraints or any other pressures.

I worked with the student on algebra. He likes to try and solve everything in his head so I've been trying to get him to write out problems that require several steps. Then we worked on sentence completion. The student does well with sentence completion unless he does not know the word. We're working on vocabulary and will continue with sentence completion later. For next week, we're starting reading comprehension.

This session, the student and I continued working on some math fundamentals. We covered order of operations, exponents, and prime numbers, in addition to reviewing what we worked on last time--mainly fractions. We also briefly visited geometry with a review of types of angles and triangles, as well as finding the area and perimeter of squares and rectangles. We finished by going over some practice problems online.

Today, we continued talking about the reading section. We went over in detail the types of passages and questions that can be expected on the test, and did some practice questions together so he could see how best to approach the different question types. Then, he did a few practice reading passages to apply these lessons to the test. He did fairly well on these, just needs to work on timing and understanding certain types of passages. His goal this week is to do a full practice reading section, which we will go over next week.

The student and I began by going over his essay. He needed some work on content and consistency, so we discussed that, as well as some strategies for self editing. We followed with vocabulary strategies, including strategies for double-blank questions. We ended by going through a reading passage slowly and methodically.
