Our son Arik took his initial diagnostic test 2.5 months before his HSPT test. His scores went from about 65% to 97% in almost all categories. We are so pleased with our experience at LA Tutors. Not only did we get amazing results, but the personal service and dedication to the tutoring was outstanding. Thank you so much!

My tutor Jeremy was great! I spent 5 sessions with him over 2 months and he gave me a few practice tests which let him pinpoint the areas where I could improve. On the day of the test, I felt prepared and relaxed and scored well above the 95th percentile. Thank you LA Tutors. We’ll be calling you when it’s time to prepare for the SAT.

Adrian worked well today and showed improvement in every section of the exam, except for vocabulary. We are now working for speed, since the ultimate goal is to get through the end of every section, even if he skips a few questions along the way!

We reviewed decimal addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Sam has a great command of these concepts – a quick review of decimal point placement ensured he was solid on this front. We then reviewed conversion of decimals/fractions/percents. Sam again mastered this quickly once we reviewed it.

Jackson and I practiced multiple pages of math problems found on the HSPT. His percentage correct has improved greatly, and he is getting better at showing his work to support his answers. Most of the mistakes he was able to fix on his own, only a few problems involved math concepts he was a little unsure of (which we corrected together).

Had a great session with Miranda today! We focused on applying exponent rules for her upcoming test. She knows and understands all of the rules, but was making a handful of errors by working too quickly and/or doing multiple steps at once. I gave her a few more complicated problems to work on. If she can do those confidently, she should have no problem with the real test on Monday.

Malachi mentioned he was constantly thinking about the time so we talked about timing strategies and not taking too long on one problem. We worked on writing in categories for each answer choice to find which belong together. I checked Malachi’s understanding of the words he was given to study and was very impressed with how well he knew them. Great job on vocab study!

We reviewed each section of the practice HSPT and went over all the strategies and what concepts she should skip for now on the Math. Emily did much better on the Verbal today and has significantly improved in the Mathematics section.
