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.
Michael Romano…Hail Mary Hero! With only two weeks to the test date and a big score to make, Michael created a great plan, encouraged our son to maximum effort, plus gave him the confidence he needed to believe in the outcome. The end result was a huge win, 330 points!…and…a solid score for Ivy League options as a scholar/athlete. Highly recommend Michael’s test prep style and service! He has the magic recipe. – Kathy Adzich (Cupertino)
Thanks to Michael Romano, I was able to take my standardized tests confidently, and more importantly, feel great about the scores I received. I can honestly say that I had a good time during our Skype sessions, even though that is not something typically associated with tutoring. Michael has a very engaging personality and clearly knows the ins and outs of the SAT reasoning test, SAT subject tests, and the ACT. He encouraged me to take the ACT as well as the SAT, and it was a decision I was very happy to have made while studying with him. I don’t think anyone else could have prepared me better, and I would definitely recommend Mr. Test Prep’s services to anyone who is taking standardized tests in the near future! – Sophie DiFillippo, Santa Barbara High School ‘2016, USC ‘2020
Aside from being a great sat tutor, Michael Romano is genuinely a cool, understanding guy. I never thought I would find myself hanging out with a tutor aside from the time my parents made me spend with said tutor. But Michael and I developed a real friendship over time. He was a regular fixture in my hospital room (completely by his own volition during an unfortunate recent stay). We also watch Warriors games and exchanged regular texts about NBA Happenings. Michael was a great tutor who helped me and my brother maximize our potential and get great test scores. If you go to Mr Test Prep you will get professional well-experienced tutoring which will yield results for you in your testing performance. And if you are fortunate enough to connect with him on a personal level , you will realize that he’s just a true homie. – Frankie Comey (Palo Alto, CA), Paly, Class of 2014, UC Santa Barbara, Class of 2018

I stand behind the fact that the Mr. Test Prep program can help almost any student achieve the score increase he or she is looking for. 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.

Michael Romano has been offering his Menlo Park SAT preparation services for almost two decades. He’s seen thousands of kids and helped with just about every kind of standardized testing anxiety a student could have. This has taught him that increased scores come down to confidence. Yes, you have to understand the material, but confidence is—more often than not—the #1 cause of a student’s trouble with testing. Bearing that in mind, he has created an SAT tutoring program that builds confidence by desensitizing his students to the conditions of the test, while providing them with targeted instruction on both the academic content of the exam and the tips and tricks that make it so much easier.
