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.
Hi Michael, Sorry for this belated thank you letter. You helped my son Zachariah Zhang to improve his SAT score from 1890 to 2260 (super score is 2290). That had played an integral part in his college applications. He was accepted by New York University, University of Illinois in Urbana Campaign, University of Washington, Boston University and UC San Diego.He just started last month as a freshman at UCSD. He is very happy there (not just because of the beaches). And I am very happy for him. And we know that we have you to thank. Going to you is one of the best decision we have ever made. Best Regards, – Brenda Zhang
When I first met Michael Romano during the summer heading into my junior year, I had already tried out two other test prep agencies and was in need of a solid foundation for my SAT and ACT preparation. I knew I was at least a decent student in school, and often felt disappointed with my practice scores because I knew I could do much better. Looking back, attending Mr. Test Prep sessions rewarded me in more ways than one. I stopped dreading the cycle of practicing, evaluating, and trying to improve on my performance because Michael engaged with me in a manner that no other tutor had before. It helped that the two of us both possessed a potent passion for basketball, but it’s always been clear that Michael enjoys getting to know each and every one of his students, no matter what their initial practice PSAT score is . I was immediately taken back by Michael’s first individual meeting with me. Unlike other prep agencies who had seen years of students pass through their doors, Michael made an effort to become my friend and even asked me about my life outside of school and test prep. Michael was uniquely skilled in discovering my strengths and weaknesses right from our first week of sessions, and within a few months, my SAT score had jumped over 200 points. In just a few months. The two of us developed and embraced a healthy rhythm to keep me on track for achieving my full potential, attending sessions about twice a week, while balancing my school schedule with my hobbies and interests. Michael has made a huge impact on so many students over his 18 years of dominating test prep, and I’ll remember him for his fun personality and our memorable talks just as much as his great advice and superior knowledge. Thanks Michael, for providing me with confidence, all of our Golden State Warrior debates, and of course, – “DAZZLE ME, DON’T FRAZZLE ME!” Josh Yuen, Palo Alto High School Class of 2016, University of California, Berkeley Class of 2020
We didn’t explore test prep options until the summer prior to my son’s senior year. Although he received a decent score on his first ACT, he was confident he could do better and knew he needed the highest score possible for the highly competitive engineering programs he was interested in. My son felt he would learn more in a one-on-one setting versus a classroom environment so we went with Michael based on reviews. He worked with Michael over the course of two months and was able to increase his ACT score by an incredible 7 points, far exceeding his (and our) expectations. Michael’s guidance allowed my son to hone his test taking skills which will likely prove beneficial throughout college. I feel it was a worthy investment of time and money for our family and would highly recommend Michael to others. – San Jose Parent, Bellarmine High School, class of 2015, Purdue University, class of 2019
