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. Romano is simply the best. Upon entering Mr. Romano’s test prep, I knew little about the SAT. The knowledge and wisdom that I inherited from Michael is truly priceless. While at Mr. Test Prep’s, Michael helped me zone in and conquer the areas in which I was struggling. Mr. Romano was very encouraging and supportive to me every time I was in his presence. Mr. Romano would carefully evaluate my progress and generously give me tips on any of my consistent confidence shortcomings. Michael’s years of experience and great social skills has enabled him to express his knowledge in ways that would help me better understand any given material. My scores, in all sections of the SAT, had climbed very significantly. Along with my growth in confidence, the appreciation I have for Mr. Romano and all his hard work grew even more. For anyone who has worked with Mr. Romano, it is clear that MICHAEL ROMANO IS THE “GO TO” GUY FOR ANYTHING RELATING TO THE SAT. Mr. Romano goes far beyond that of a SAT prep teacher. Michael has become to me more of a mentor and good friend. Other than being a great teacher, Mr. Romano is also a great person; a likable person. Michael Romano ranks among the highest all around great individuals I have had the honor of knowing. It meant all the more to me that Mr. Romano was always someone I can turn to for valuable insight on things that might be giving me trouble; both in and out of the classroom. I struggled a lot with academics in high school and often worried about my ability to continue education in a college setting, but Mr. Romano made all the difference. After I was taken under Michael’s wing, my academics made a significant change for the better. My grades began to soar hand-in-hand with my SAT scores. Mr. Romano helped me the way nobody else could. I owe a lot to Michael and thank God that He has blessed me in coming to know Mr. Romano. With all that he has done for me, Michael has helped my once far-fetched dream of continuing my studies in Santa Barbara a reality. – Guillermo Lopez ( San Jose, Ca )
Michael Romano is simply the best at test preparation. His winning combination of expert level knowledge of all things college test related and his relaxed manner gives each student a confidence and ability boost. I especially like the individualized sessions with each student so every person is getting the personalized help that they need, not a one size fit all generic test preparation. Even though we moved away from the area three years ago, we continue to utilize his teaching talents and are thrilled with the results our daughters have achieved. – Stacy DiFilippo, Santa Barbara ‘2016
Great tutor! So glad we found him. Made all the difference for my son. He had taken the SAT once and was looking to take it again. We already tried C2, and Kaplan both did not work for my son. So instead of trying to find another large SAT prep class, we decided to enroll him with Michael. Best decision we made for college prep:) I think the Yelp reviews really helped us make the decision. Michael was a fantastic tutor and friend for my son. My son stopped complaining about SAT prep after he started going to Michael. Happy to report that his SAT scores went up by 200 points after taking classes with Michael. My son and Michael got along great and Michael’s techniques really boosted my son’s self confidence. The second time he took his SAT, he was confident and happy. Michael is making a huge positive difference in the lives of so many students, I would highly recommend Michael to anyone that is looking for a SAT tutor. – Tina M.(Cupertino, CA), Student’s School: Monta Vista High School, Class of 2016

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 SAT tutor Los Altos 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.
