How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

If you wish to get your child into a private school, there are many challenges. First, many schools accept a limited number of students per year. Also, the entrance exams can be difficult. The High School Placement Test, or HSPT, is a commonly administered test in the U.S., but your child may not be familiar with its format. Although there is no nationally standardized score, the HSPT has all the hallmarks of a typical standardized test. It covers topics in a particular test format. It is also long, covering roughly 300 questions in 2.5 hours. Your child has less than a minute to answer each question. Time is also an issue with preparing; a student must prepare well in advance, but studying can be more time-consuming for someone without the right focus. Varsity Tutors can find your child an expert HSPT tutor in Scottsdale, AZ, to optimize their study time.

With a test such as the HSPT, it is better to study smarter, not longer. A tutor could help your child see what they already know, so they don't have to spend time reading and practicing those topics. The personal instructor will quickly identify their weaknesses and target these during customized study sessions. These are structured based on your student's abilities, learning style, and even personality. Better yet, there's help for finding such tutors. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors are experienced at connecting students in Scottsdale with HSPT tutors, so your child can receive help brushing up on arithmetic, algebra, reading comprehension, vocabulary, or any other subject.

Today the student and I focused on 3D geometry and sequences and series. She was comfortable with all the material but I think the exercises were useful because they forced her to look out for tiny mistakes. For sequences and series I also spent a little bit of time on qualitative properties (such as definitions and necessary conditions for convergence). Tomorrow we will focus on matrices and vectors, which should be fun and should wrap up our coverage of material.

The student and I powered through another practice SAT, touching on every section save for one reading and math section as well as the essay. He only missed a few of the most difficult questions, and he is well on track to scoring a 700+ in each section. With further practice, the errors will decrease, and if he continues to read, he will be even more prepared to increase his speed/accuracy as well as to create a well-written essay.

We spent the entire session going over the essay portion of the test. We first read over sample essays, and then I went over how to prepare an outline and thesis statement.

The student and I completed the practice test he had been working on. I estimated the scores at a 640-690-690 (total 2020) which shows improvement! There is probably not even so much more I can teach him... he no longer makes small mistakes on the math sections. The remaining focus will be on challenging math questions, review on writing sections, and essay work.

The student and I worked on difficult problems from his CLEP Calculus packet. Topics covered included separation of variables, area under a curve, and inverse functions. He will be taking the exam on Monday. I've left him with extra problems from the practice test question bank.
