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.
Michael Romano is the best. No exceptions. My first experience with SAT prep was with a not-so-great company, so I was at first reluctant to try Mr Test Prep. Boy, was I wrong — I should have started with him from the beginning! In the first half hour of the trial session he told me that I was probably better suited for the ACT. I tried my hand at that instead, and scored significantly higher. Mr Test Prep also helped me prepare for the PSAT, and now I am a National Merit Scholar. I definitely could not have done it without him. Michael is relaxed and funny, but don’t let that fool you! He is a class A++ tutor. Thank you!! – Maxwell “M-Bizzle” Bernstein ( Palo Alto ), Palo Alto High School, ’14, Tufts University, ’18
Unlike the other tutoring centers where having a good tutor is the luck of the draw, you know what you get with Mr. Test Prep. Michael is very experienced and patient with the students. He focuses his conversations with the student based on their mistakes on the practice tests and customizes with the particular sections that each student needs to work on. Doing many of the practice tests at his home without distraction is a more realistic measure of the students ability versus doing the practice tests as homework at home. It also trains the student’s ability to stay focus for an extended period of time, mimicking the real test environment. We also liked Michael’s flexible make up schedule. Even though the student is supposed to sign up to a particular time & day, Micheal is very good about make up lessons which we found very helpful with the chaotic schedule of our teenagers these days. Several occasion when my daughter was sick or have a conflicting activity, Michael is very accommodating, allowing her to attend at a different time. With all the high stress preparing for the tests, Michael also taught my daughter “meditation” techniques to use prior to the exam which is so valuable for the rest of her life. The ability to calm the “nerves” will come in handy before any exams, presentations, job interviews, etc. that our children will face. – Karen Yuen, Los Altos
Our son Matthew began his Test Prep Journey with Michael in the Spring of 2015. We came across him from another family whose son also had great success with Michael’s help. Matthew is a great student but needed help with strategies on taking standardized tests. With Michael’s patience and enduring qualities his ACT score went up by 22% from the original Plan score from his sophomore year. Matthew is now sitting on 7 college acceptance letters out of the 8 universities he has applied to but we are confident that final acceptance is just around the corner for his overall ACT score exceeds the college’s minimum requirement for acceptance. Michael is patient and kind and really understands how to streamline the testing process while building up his student’s confidence in the process. Michael is a great mentor, role model and loves basketball. We would recommend Michael to any parent working with their High School child in the college application journey. We will see you again in four years with our second son. Thank you Michael. – Barbara A.
