How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
The HSPT, or the High School Placement Test, is a comprehensive exam for eighth graders. The HSPT may be required if students plan to apply to certain private and parochial high schools. It is offered every fall and spring, and it is administered by individual private schools. Is your child beginning to prepare for the exam? Have they already started preparing? Are they finding it difficult to focus on the material? Varsity Tutors can help match them with a tutor. San Francisco, CA, HSPT tutors can help to guide your child through their test preparation.
There are five required sections on the exam: language, math, quantitative skills, reading, and verbal skills. There are also several optional sections that may be added to the test. HSPT tutors in San Francisco can help your student study more efficiently for the exam. Your child's personal tutor can plan sessions to focus strictly on the areas where your child most needs help. For example, if their trouble areas are language and reading, their tutor can give them customized study materials for those parts of the test. They can, at your student's pace, review common grammar issues, spelling, how to identify themes in a story passage, and vocabulary. They can also provide practice versions of the exam so your child will know what the real test looks like.
