We want a one-tail test value in the student's t-distribution such that the area to the left is .05 with degrees of freedom 6.

See the attached table:

First scan down the column for degrees of freedom 6.

Next scan across to the column under the one-tail value of .05.

The number in this row and column is 1.943
