How can a tutor help your child master the HSPT?

The High School Placement Test (HSPT) is administered by individual parochial and private high schools. It is offered to students in grade eight and is used as a part of many private schools' admissions processes. The HSPT takes approximately two and a half hours to complete and consists of 300 questions. Working through this many questions can be difficult for students, but they can study with the help of an Arvada, Colorado, HSPT tutor.

The HSPT is traditionally broken down into five sections, including language, math, quantitative skills, reading, and verbal skills. The language section focuses on capitalization, spelling, punctuation, and grammar. The math section is similar to the quantitative section, but it consists of algebra in addition to arithmetic and geometry. The quantitative skills section consists of arithmetical numbers, geometry numbers, geometric and non-geometric comparisons, and number series. The reading section is made up of reading comprehension and vocabulary. The verbal skills section covers verbal classification, logic, analogies, antonyms, and synonyms. It is also possible that the school your child is applying to may add additional sections. If this occurs, the extra sections may include Catholic religion, mechanical aptitude, and science. If these additional sections are added, your child could have more time to complete the exam. If you want to strive to help your child prepare for the HSPT, you should connect them with a private tutor. The educational directors at Varsity Tutors can help connect your child with brilliant HSPT tutoring in Arvada.

HSPT Tutoring review by Connor in Arvada, CO
We specifically reviewed testing strategies for verbal and reading, as well as geometry theory. We covered a range of various practice question so that I could gauge progress. I have no other concerns or remarks.

HSPT Tutoring review by Pallavi in Arvada, CO
Today the student and I reviewed radicals (square roots) and solving equations in which there is an x to the second power or a square root of x. We also reviewed critical reading passages from the test he took on Saturday. The student needs to be careful when he reads the questions and needs to practice looking back at the text before answering the question.

HSPT Tutoring review by Margaret in Arvada, CO
After a quick overview, the student and I decided to focus on the math sections of the test today. We touched on the arithmetic concepts, and reviewed algebra and geometry problems. We also spent time translating word problems into proportions and equations. We will go over the verbal and language sections next time.

HSPT Tutoring review by Janine in Arvada, CO
Today the student and I worked on timing and pacing for the verbal and reading comprehension sections for the assessment. We went over some practices. He worked on answering his responses on the test paper. This is the first time I administered a timed subtest to him, and he now knows what he needs to do to increase his speed while still remaining accurate in his answer choices. We finished the session by reviewing reading comprehension strategies to answer implied and inferred questions on reading comprehension sections. The student practiced looking at context clues at the end of the reading/paragraph to help anticipate what information would logically be presented next in a reading passage. The student is going to work independently on some of the diagnostic tests for verbal qualitative skills, and complete them within a set time.

HSPT Tutoring review by Zachary in Arvada, CO
The student and I started by going over the language section that we began reviewing last meeting. She needed help on the usage portion of the section but did very well on all spelling and composition. We identified some concepts to look for as she works through the usage portion, focusing on subject-verb agreement, pronoun antecedent agreement, and mid-line punctuation. She has an additional practice language section with answer explanations in order to reinforce these concepts. Since our last meeting, she completed a practice verbal (90%) and quantitative (86%). We went over the few problems that she missed and completed similar practice problems. She had also completed the vocab portion of a reading section (90%). We finished by reviewing all general test strategies and going over some math formulas that have given her difficulty in the past. She knows to focus on the math and language sections this week as she finishes preparing. Great work!

HSPT Tutoring review by John in Arvada, CO
We concentrated on three ASVAB sections -- Mechanical Comprehension, Electronics, and Assembling Objects -- by working through a few of the problems from the student's prep manual. We reviewed long division and multiplication at his request. We reviewed test taking strategies for each type of problem and the process of elimination common to all multiple choice assessments. Toward the end of the class, we looked together at some ASVAB prep questions online. He is scheduled to take the ASVAB on March 24th. We have one more session before then.
