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 is a godsend. Honestly, I was way behind on getting ready for the SATs when I found Mr. Test Prep. I came to him only a month or so before the SAT I wanted to take, unsure of how to study and what the test would be like. After meeting with him once a week for about six weeks, I felt confident and prepared going into my first SAT. Mr. Romano reminded me that it was only a “practice” run, and that we’d see how I did and plan for future tests accordingly. The clear-headedness and confidence that he exuded helped me remain grounded and focused during my exam. After that test, we met another four times to get ready for the “real” one. Once I received my results for my second SAT, I realized that in those FOUR short meetings we had to prepare, Mr. Test Prep had increased my math score by 90 points. 90 POINTS! And I’m not a fan of math so if that isn’t a miracle, I don’t know what is. Just a word about the man behind the magic; Mr. Romano is amazing. He is truly one of the most genuine, funny, and charismatic people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not once did he ask me about my grades or college plans in a way that was anything other than supportive. That means a lot. I’m not a bad student, so talking about grades doesn’t give me anxiety in that way, but usually when an adult mentions my academics, it stresses me out because it makes me feel like my grades are the most important way for them to define me. The fact that Mr. Romano never made me feel like that instantly made me feel more comfortable working with him. On top of that, he also makes test prep more fun by sharing humorous tidbits and brief anecdotes during the “check ins”. The connections we were able to build off of those really made our relationship more of a friendship instead of an awkward, distant tutor-student relationship. When I feel more connected to my instructors, I feel more motivated to do well. And Mr. Romano always motivated me. I could talk for ages about all the ways Mr. Romano has proven himself to be the best SAT/ACT tutor out there, but I don’t think there’s enough space for me to type it all out. Basically, he will change everything in the best way possible. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to work with him, because you won’t find anyone else who can even come close to him. – Julia Shaver, 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
