How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
Few tests in 8th grade are as challenging as the High School Placement Test, or HSPT. Private and parochial schools tend to be very competitive and selective. Getting your child into one of these takes effort, including readying them for the HSPT, and ensuring they are up to speed on every subject. Success requires months of preparation and studying for this 2.5-hour, nearly 300-question exam. You want to offer your student encouragement, but you can't expect them to be totally prepared by themselves. Varsity Tutors could help make your child's HSPT study sessions more productive, by finding them a tutor in San Mateo, CA.
The tutor's goal is to focus on any weaknesses, and maximize the chances of scoring as close to an 800 as possible. Also, the instructor can focus on the specific version of the HSPT your child is preparing for. The exam covers language, math, reading, verbal, and quantitative skills. There is a lot to cover. Working with a tutor well in advance of the exam can help address any areas of confusion, so your child can be ready and confident when the time comes.
