How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
Many private and parochial high schools across the United States use the High School Placement Test, or HSPT, as part of their admissions process. If your student is heading to private school for their freshman year, they will take the HSPT during their 8th grade year. Your students can expect 300 multiple choice questions on topics including languages, math, quantitative reasoning, reading, and verbal skills. They will be given 2.5 hours to finish the exam. It's also important to note that some schools add more sections, like science or religion to the exam, which also increases the time allowed to finish the test. Varsity Tutors can find you an experienced HSPT tutor in Marina Del Rey with expertise and depth of knowledge in the subject who can try to help students at all levels.
The HSPT is likely the first big admissions test of your student's academic career, so it's a great idea to prepare early. Many of the skills that could help your student succeed on the HSPT could help them stay ahead of the curve in their classes and give them a head start when it comes time for the ACT or SAT as well. Test prep tutoring can help students overcome test anxiety, and it could help them improve time management on timed tests, and it could help them get in the habit of setting aside time to study -- a skill that will become more and more important as high school classes become more demanding.
