DOES YOUR CHILD NEED TO IMPROVE HIS OR HER STANDARDIZED SAT TEST SCORES?
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A MASTER SAT TEST TUTOR IN THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA BAY AREA WHO REQUIRES NO HOMEWORK AND GUARANTEES RESULTS?
I can help. Working with high school students for over 18 years, I have developed a philosophy supported by skills and techniques proven to result in superb SAT Tutoring and ACT test results.
We all move through the world with a self-image that sets what we believe we are capable of. This self-image often under serves our potential because it has been formed by a hodge-podge of experiences, some encouraging and affirming, others anything but. The sense of self is malleable particularly in young people.
I work to expose their doubts and fears as more imagined than real and to convince them that they are much more capable than they realize. This serves the all-important self-image in a very powerful way. It not only results in vastly improved standardized scores but also recalibrates the belief in what’s possible.
As I work with my students, I never lose sight of my real objective. I may be helping them ace their standardized tests, but ultimately I am elevating more than just a score.
My program is not a traditional “one on one” tutoring situation. I have learned from my almost two decades of experience that there is a better and less painful way to prepare kids for these tests. Over the course of each 2-hour session, students meet with me for three private, one-on-one conferences (totaling about 20 minutes per student, each session),
The value of each 2 hour session is multi-faceted:
- Self-timed sections in a group environment similar to the actual testing environment
- Immediate correction of mistakes and tutoring to specific content or errors
- Test taking strategies given as they arise during test taking, making them more relevant and easier to remember and apply
- Confidence building with every interaction
- Session by session readjustment of areas of focus based on observable progress
Investments of time and money vary from student to student. Regardless of ability, students that complete the number of sessions we agree to upfront have a great chance of meeting or surpassing their test prep objectives.
Mr.Test Prep is all dazzle and no frazzle! It would be disrespectful to regard Michael as anything other than a master at what he does. He has been successfully mentoring successful people for over 17 years and his experience, as well as love for his work, shows. Michael works WITH you instead of just giving you work. There’s no way I would be able to get as far as I have without him as a tutor and mentor. He doesn’t stop at just teaching you test material, but he also makes sure you understand valuable test taking strategies, all the while building your confidence and helping you realize your potential. I came in with an abysmally low math SAT score and the confidence to match. I had gone to tutors in the past but I never got anywhere with them. I had been made to feel incompetent by unenthusiastic tutors when I asked for help so just I stopped asking questions. And when I tried to study by myself nothing made sense and I quickly got frustrated and gave up. Michael gave me back confidence that I thought was lost forever. The laid back atmosphere of the tutoring center and Michael himself made me feel safe to make mistakes and ask questions. He NEVER ONCE made me feel stupid or not worth his time. I learned more during my short time with Michael than I did in any other math class I’ve taken. My math score improved by over 200 points in the short time I was with him, and my other scores also improved! I give full credit, my undying gratitude and immense admiration to the the fabulous Mr.Test prep for making my SAT scores competitive enough to apply to any college that I choose. And more than that; I can’t thank him enough for miraculously lifting me out of my epic EIGHT YEAR math rut. This review isn’t doing him justice, but I urge you to go to him and experience the magic for yourself. It was the best decision I could have made for myself and I know it will be for you too! Nothing I could do for him would be thanks enough for all the life lessons and laughs he’s given me. I’m so happy to have crossed paths with Mr.Test Prep. – Tatiana Mason
Mr. Test Prep was my cheerleader and much needed roadmap to the test taking process. Before I discovered him, I was just copying what my sister had done in terms of testing, not realizing that it’s a completely individual process. He picked up so quickly on my strengths and what I naturally did well, and he capitalized on those things. He gave me the gift of a straightforward and clear roadmap for what tests to take and when, and how best to maximize my skills. This personal roadmap worked so well because he took the time to get to know me. Apart from learning about my interests in school like the fact that I’m an English and History person, he cared about my favorite things to do and how I was doing. He even supported the fundraiser for my choir tour. He’s such a funny, relaxed person that the atmosphere for studying is always fun and productive. He offers so much more than just math tips. Thank you for all your help:) – Megan Schmiesing, Los Altos High School, 2016
Our son Matthew began his Test Prep Journey with Michael in the Spring of 2015. We came across him from another family whose son also had great success with Michael’s help. Matthew is a great student but needed help with strategies on taking standardized tests. With Michael’s patience and enduring qualities his ACT score went up by 22% from the original Plan score from his sophomore year. Matthew is now sitting on 7 college acceptance letters out of the 8 universities he has applied to but we are confident that final acceptance is just around the corner for his overall ACT score exceeds the college’s minimum requirement for acceptance. Michael is patient and kind and really understands how to streamline the testing process while building up his student’s confidence in the process. Michael is a great mentor, role model and loves basketball. We would recommend Michael to any parent working with their High School child in the college application journey. We will see you again in four years with our second son. Thank you Michael. – Barbara A.
