Session Summaries by HSPT Tutors

HSPT Tutoring review by Carolyn in Los Angeles, CA
We reviewed what we talked about last time. We went through the questions on the reading section and talked about strategies such as going back to the text to find the answers. Then we practiced on a few excerpts. We also talked about several math concepts (circumference, percentage, dividing fractions), which we touched on briefly when we went over the questions on the math portion. She remembered how to do most of them from that first walk through.

HSPT Tutoring review by Nora in Los Angeles, CA
The student and I focused mainly on the Verbal Skills section, with particular attention on the logic skills problems. We practiced diagramming the first two statements so that she could better evaluate whether the third statement was true, false or uncertain. We also explored some traps to avoid with odd word out questions.

HSPT Tutoring review by Charles in Los Angeles, CA
This was our last session together. We continued his work on the entrance essay. I am confident that some of the key phrases he came up with for the essay truly capture his essence and meaning.

HSPT Tutoring review by Kia in Los Angeles, CA
Since Reading Comprehension was the student's highest score, we spent this session on test-taking skills for that section. He did very well on the quizzes and drills I gave him, and should be able to get a high score on the actual test for that section.
