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
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
After getting a score on my PSAT that was below my potential and being crushed by my twin sister’s perfect 36 on the ACT, I felt very determined to augment my score. Michael Romano helped me improve my SAT score by over 200 points, and through his unconditional support, friendliness, and encouragement, Michael instilled in me a sense of confidence that I hadn’t had before. He taught me lots of useful tricks and tips. But after the “either is always singular”, etc, my favorite thing he taught me was how to meditate. He offered to have my stay an extra hour after my session one day and taught me a routine of meditation and mental relaxation. The habit of meditation was crucial to my success because it allowed me stay focused and be confident; it went such a long way for me that I ended up writing about my utilization of meditation for my common app college essay. Michael’s well-rounded style of teaching proves that he is so much more than just an SAT-prep teacher; he is a friend. – Claire Chevallier (Palo Alto, CA), Paly, Class of 2015, UC Davis, Class of 2019
