How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
If your goal is to have your child attend a private school, then you may need to have them start preparing to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). This exam is only given twice a year (once in the fall and once in the spring) and is required for admission to many private schools. A private tutor may be an option to consider to help your student prepare for exam day. Varsity Tutors can help you find an HSPT tutor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who can help your child prepare for exam day. Your student's tutor may also help them in person at a time and place that is convenient for you, or face-to-face online.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, HSPT tutors can walk your student through each section of the exam (language, math, quantitative skills, reading, verbal skills, and any optional sections). By going over the entire exam with your student, their tutor can determine where the problem areas are that they need to focus on. This also allows your student to see the structure of the exam and understand the layout they can expect on test day. Test anxiety is often a big component to consider for large exams. Seeing what the exam will look like ahead of the big day may help ease the fear of the unknown and the resulting anxiety. The timing factor of the exam also contributes to this, and to dispel this, their tutor can time each section as your student takes a practice exam. This can allow them to experience a mock test day with only 25 minutes to complete the language section, 30 minutes to finish quantitative skills, 45 minutes to complete math, 25 minutes to complete reading, and 16 minutes to finish verbal skills.
