How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
They may be excited about the prospect of applying to a competitive private high school, but your child may be unsure how to study for the High School Placement Test, or HSPT. The exam is administered by individual schools, so there's no nationally standardized scoring. As if standardized testing isn't challenging enough! Varsity Tutors' educational directors in Tempe, AZ, can find a tutor for your child, who can work with their learning style and abilities, to help them do well on the HSPT. One-on-one help can avoid the common pitfalls of test prep courses, and focuses on your child's individual needs. In fact, an experienced HSPT tutor in Tempe, AZ, can present your student with multiple teaching approaches until they find the one that works best for them.
Working on your child's level is important to learning. It also prepares them for this difficult test, and the challenges that lie ahead. To start, the exam has nearly 300 questions. Your child has 2.5 hours, which seems like ample time, but it comes down to a limited amount of time per question. To succeed, they cannot stumble on the format or the content. A tutor can therefore incorporate grammar, spelling, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and reading exercises into the study plan. Practice tests help your child understand the format and time their performance. These also make it easier for the tutor to track progress and adapt their strategy if needed.
