How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?
The High School Placement Test is an exam designed and administered by certain private high schools. Students wishing to be considered for admittance into said schools must take the exam to be considered. The exam covers a wide variety of subjects, including language, math, quantitative skills, reading, verbal skills, and optional or additional sections depending on the school. The exam is typically taken in eighth grade before entering high school. Preparing for such a large exam at that stage can be overwhelming for students, but with the help of a tutor, your student can work through their test prep work. For help finding HSPT tutoring in Washington, D.C., contact the educational directors at Varsity Tutors.
The HSPT is a non-standardized exam, which means that different schools have different versions of the exam and include different sections. Finding study material for a test that varies by school can be difficult, but a personal Washington, D.C., HSPT tutor can create a curriculum and materials that are catered to the exact test your student may be taking. Not many eighth-grade students can be expected to prepare effectively for such a large exam on their own. Staying organized and focused enough to be effective is difficult, which is why a tutor is a great idea. The tutor can create a lesson plan designed to keep your student on track heading into test day. There is a lot to cover before the exam, so having a schedule to cover every subject is important.
