How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

If you're the parent of a child in 8th grade who is looking to enter a private school, they could be required to take the High School Placement Test, or HSPT. This is a standardized test used by many institutions, especially Catholic schools, to help make judgments regarding admissions and level placement. It is given twice a year and assesses one's knowledge on topics like quantitative skills, mathematics, reading, and verbal skills. Preparing for the test can be overwhelming, as there is a lot of material to memorize. Fortunately, Varsity Tutors is able to help make the learning experience efficient and enjoyable. Call us today to find professional HSPT tutors in Tacoma, WA, to try to help you develop a study plan that is catered to your student's skills, abilities, and learning style.

Session Summaries by HSPT Tutors

Tacoma, WA HSPT tutoring
In a change of pace, the student and I worked on biology as it took precedence over her SAT. She's been struggling in school in terms of having such a full weekday course-load, so she and I decided to do a little bit of SAT and a little bit of schoolwork. We went over her biology class for her test the next day, and it was over mitosis and meiosis. She had trouble distinguishing the 2 at first, but upon using relevant analogies and getting her to think of the broad picture of what was happening in between the steps molecularly during the M phases, she was able to grasp the concept of what exactly was happening when a somatic cell (mitosis) and a sex cell (meiosis) replicate. We also went over mutations and how they transfer over, but it was primarily over mitosis.

We powered through several sections from the SAT guide, mostly focusing on math and writing. She is wary of the more difficult problems, but we practiced through these concepts and stressed the importance of paying attention to the question stems. She was getting much better at the writing portion, and she just needs to brush up on more obscure vocabulary.

We went over the practice SAT that the student took for homework. She did well--about the same as her last practice test, and a little over her score goal of 1800. We went over each of the sections together. She also wanted to be clear on when she should guess vs. skip questions so we discussed that as well.

The student and I focused on certain SAT-test-taking strategies, such as when to guess and when not to guess, and focused on a few math sections, reviewing concepts that will most likely come up on the test.

The student is in a great place for the upcoming test, so we're now focusing on taking the pressure off the clock, so to speak, and reviewing strategies. Just to get more comfortable with time and to get a better sense of it, we're also doing "drills" and practice sections but without the pressure of the test itself.
