How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is administered by individual private schools to 8th graders trying to apply to their institution of preference. Your student has two-and-a-half hours to complete the roughly 300-question exam, which is scored from 200-800 points. The exam covers a number of subjects. If any academic subject challenges your child, it could greatly affect their score. Being prepared for the HSPT may be time-consuming, since your student needs to understand not just language, math, reading, quantitative, and verbal skills, but in addition working with the test format. For example, they need to complete each question and section in a fair quantity of time to keep on pace. Missing questions will lower their score. In the case of the HSPT, practice makes perfect. Varsity Tutors could help you find a professional HSPT tutor in Pflugerville, TX, who can try to offer your child engaging study sessions to make the most usage of their time.

Fitting in enough prep time with the full set of classes and after-school activities can be difficult. Each tutor is flexible. They can meet after school or on the weekend. In case your child is more content learning at home, the tutor can travel, or meet in just about any other convenient place. Online learning sessions, by which your child and tutor meet face-to-face using a live learning platform, will also be available. A variety of study resources can be found on the web as well.

Session Summaries by HSPT Tutors

Pflugerville, TX HSPT tutoring
The student constantly exceeds my expectations. She wrote a very polished essay. She only missed an average of 3 on her math sections, and only one or two on reading. Overall, she is missing fewer than five problems in every section and finishing her sections well before the timer goes off, and that is an extremely great start! Because she is doing so well on the real SAT practice tests, we will be using different workbooks from now on. These books are significantly harder, and will help her raise her score to the next level. The strategy right now should be to quickly raise her score to above a 2200, and then sharpen some detailed knowledge even more with workshops to raise that final 100 points. I believe she has the potential to score above a 2300, and ensure a 2200.

The student and I went over an essay he had written before our meeting. He is a strong writer, and the essay had very good focus, structure and grammar. During the rest of the session we worked on critical reading passages and vocabulary multiple choice. He is making very good progress with both, and is making reasonable guesses when he is uncertain of the answer. He is going to write another essay before our next meeting and continue to work on vocabulary.

We spent most of our time reviewing two math sections the student had done since last week. He already showed great improvement over his previous SAT scores, though this practice was not timed. We took our time going over missed questions to analyze alternative ways to solve, methods to read each question's call carefully, and techniques to double check answers. We wrapped up by completing a passages section of the critical reading, aiming to get familiar with the different styles of question.

I first checked in with both students about their assigned work from last session and quizzed them on building their vocabulary bank. We spent a good portion of the session going through problems from the last session's practice test, working through the problems and discussing strategies to improve outcomes in the future. We finished by working on strategies for reading comprehension questions, and they will complete practice problems before our next meeting.

We started by reviewing the sentence completions that she had done and then spend a solid amount of time reviewing the math section she had completed. After this, we spent the last hour learning techniques for sentence improvement and sentence corrections. I left her with some sections in especially sentence correction and improvement as these are some of the trickiest parts of the SAT. Also, if she has time, she needs to complete another math section and have an essay written by Tuesday for me to grade and give feedback.

We covered verbal and quantitative reasoning. The student showed an excellent performance on verbal reasoning. I suggested reading at higher grade levels (upper high school) to further improve her vocabulary. The quantitative reasoning section was more difficult for her, but she was able to work her way through and understand each of the problems. She has a very positive attitude and mindset.
