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
I had gone to two different tutoring agencies in the Bay Area that didn’t end up offering me nearly as many results as Mr. Test Prep did. I remembered being frustrated with my scores, wondering why they weren’t improving even when I put in the time and the work. Since my older brother loved Michael so much, I decided to try his curriculum. Michael truly changed the testing game for me. I was struggling in the science section of the ACT. He showed me how to take science and tackle it like a reading comprehension problem, making my score raise SEVEN POINTS in a matter of a few lessons. Additionally, he programmed many functions into my calculator that not only saved me an abundance of time on the test, but that I still use in my AP Calculus class this year. These were functions that no other testing agency had offered me. His amazing attitude, outgoing friendliness, and noticeable intellect made me not dread going to tutoring, as I once did prior to Mr. Test Prep. I walked out of this program with amazing ACT and SAT subject test scores, great study skills for my classes, and an amazing resource that I am excited to show to my little brother once he begins the testing process. It is truly a blessing to be able to apply to college and know you did the testing part right. – Luma Hamade, Palo Alto High School ‘2016, UC Santa Barbara ‘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

Mr. Test Prep helps every type of student—yes, even the shy ones—maximize their score potential. A lot of shy kids find the scrutiny of full one-on-one tutoring to be too intense, but at my Redwood City ACT preparation center, I create a safe environment that is perfect for kids who find verbal participation to be stressful. By combining group testing, with targeted instruction, shy kids can get the help they need in a way that works for their personality. No more awkward silences. No more pushy tutors. Just lots of practice and the guidance of an experienced educator.
