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.
After looking around for various folks to help my son prep for the SAT I found Michael Romano and could not be more pleased with the results. He has developed a system that was perfect for my son. I knew my son would never prep on his own – it’s just not in him and he does not have the time. I did not want to pay a lot of money only to have my son not do the work. Michael understands this. He has the kids do the work in his lovely converted garage and then he reviews what they’ve done right then and there. It’s fresh in the kids’ minds and he walks them through the thought process in a way they can understand. Instant feedback – what a concept! My son’s score increased by 310 points after working with Michael. I’m sure he wouldn’t have seen that kind of an increase with a different approach. Moreover, he saw that increase without doing any work on his own time. The only time he thought about the SAT was when he was with Michael. If your child will do work on his own, I suspect the results could be even greater. Michael relates well to the kids and is a joy to work with. I highly recommend him! – MeMe Rasmussen -parent, Saint Francis’15
Everyone knows that the process of studying for standardized tests is a time consuming and not particularly enjoyable experience. However, Mr. Romano’s methods are efficient, effective and actually enjoyable. As a high school athlete, I possessed a full schedule of practices, homework and other extracurricular activities which made it difficult to find time to study for these standardized tests. Fortunately, Mr. Test Prep offered flexible hours throughout the week that made tutoring easy to fit into my schedule. In addition, I could change my hours weekly based on my given schedule each week so I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything by studying. Also, the fact that he does not give homework was quite a relief to me! Another reason why I cannot praise Mr. Romano enough is because of his vibrant personality and all of his experience in this field. He is not only a fantastic tutor but also a great friend. He makes an effort to get to know each and every one of his students and is always friendly and positive. I couldn’t help but smile whenever I saw him humming or singing a different song every week. His positive attitude makes the time spend with him so much more enjoyable. Mr. Romano creates a great environment where students can improve their scores in a way that is personalized to each student’s needs. I studied with Mr. Romano for the SAT, ACT and subject tests and found that he had helpful strategies for approaching each test. I always felt that his feedback was constructive and I definitely improved and was able to get scores that I was very pleased with after working with Michael. I can’t thank him enough for all his help and for making the process so much less stressful for me. – Kelsey Reed (Menlo Park. CA), Menlo-Atherton, Class of 2016, Stanford, Class of 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
