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.
We are currently using Mr Test Prep for our second child. Working with Mike has been excellent for both our children. His philosophy is to limit SAT preparation to the sessions and this is very important in maintaining the appropriate balance of school work and test preparation in our children’s highly pressured lives. This is a smart approach and Mike’s results are outstanding. We had our first child work initially with a different tutoring service which was very intense and involved of homework. This was not successful and little progress resulted. When we switched to Mike we saw a new approach to the exam and a greater understanding of the nuances of the particular standardized test…and we saw dramatic improvement in scores. Importantly, Mike is an outstanding educator and really understands children and how they are wired and how to get them to put their best foot forward. With our second child, we went straight to Mike. Both our kids really like Mike and were inspired by him. We would unreservedly recommend Mr Test Prep and feel lucky to have found him. – Karen Patou ( Palo Alto, Ca ), Parent of Gunn Junior and Georgetown Freshman
After taking the PSAT at school, I knew I needed help to get my score to a competitive level, and that, like many other students, I just needed practice and a few tips to get there. Mr. Test Prep stood out from the beginning because of the different approach from all other services. Students complete practices during their lessons, and Mr. Romano periodically checks on their progress. The integrated practice and tutoring was so beneficial for me because all the questions were still fresh in my mind during the session, and I was able to understand what I could do differently and then go practice immediately. My confidence (and score) started to increase rapidly after my first session. Another way Mr. Romano sets himself apart is the personal attention he gives to each of his students. He works with them to set a goal, map out a plan to get there, and then supports them through. My final score actually exceeded my expectations. I see my friends working through other programs, which requires them to do lots of outside practice before impersonal lessons. These methods seem like significantly more work for the student, with similar or even not as good results, not to mention the lack of personal attention. Overall, Mr. Test Prep’s personal and focused approached was ideal for me, and helped me earn a SAT score I can be proud of. I would highly recommend his program over any other service. – Anna Garverick (Los Altos, CA), Los Altos High School, Class of 2017
What’s different about Mr. Test Prep is that it’s more of a one-on-one session which helps tremendously especially with SATs, ACT’s and other standardized tests. I strongly recommend him for anyone because no matter what place you are at, Mr. Romano will work with you on it and help you to improve with many great strategies and tips. He not only tries to help you with testing, but he also does make an effort to get to know you as a person, which helped me gain a lot of confidence to confide my weaknesses in him and ask for help. He is very efficient and on top of things all the time and always had a positive and comforting attitude throughout. I’m very satisfied with everything he’s helped me with and the environment I come to every time has been so motivating and beneficial to me. Mr. Test Prep knows what he is doing and will help you. – Riyana Patel (Cupertino, Ca), Monta Vista High School, Class of 2016

I am so confident that I offer my students a score satisfaction guarantee, which allows them to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep, free of charge, if they aren’t fully satisfied with the results.
