For the time being, test prep sessions are conducted online via Zoom. They will last as long and cost as much as our in-person test prep sessions do.
Instead of doing work within a group, he or she will work from home. The student is not going to have a session with me in person; rather, he or she will meet with me online.
Sessions will continue to be scheduled the same way at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
When you schedule your appointments the Zoom meeting details will be sent along with the confirmation notices.
If practice tests are recommended, they will be taken from your home and then assessed in our test prep sessions.
You are going to be billed through email.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. Meanwhile, stay safe and calm amidst the chaos.
Mr. Test Prep changed my life. I recently graduated from Duke University, and I am STILL thinking about how grateful I am to have had private tutoring sessions in high school with Mr. Romano. It’s a fact that my SATs improved by around 350 points after tutoring, and I believe that this drastic improvement is a large part of what helped me get into my dream school. His Skype sessions were informative and effective. He was a great teacher that intimately knew the material, and he adapted his lesson plan to what I needed most to work on while still reinforcing the concepts with which I was comfortable. I was never bored or falling asleep, and I learned many tools to help deal with not only the test but also test-taking. It’s now six years later, and I know that tutoring with Mr. Test Prep was worth it.

When you imagine a test prep tutor, what kind of person do you think of?
I’m the type of person who never worked well with adults who tried to push me or made me feel stupid, and that’s why I was really reluctant to try SAT prep.
But Michael Romano surprised me by defying the stereotype of the traditional harsh, nitpicky tutor time and time again. He never forces students to study or do homework assignments, and because he did not, I felt genuinely inspired to put in the effort on my own behalf. Rather than someone else driving my progress, I felt as though I held the reigns to my own improvement on the SAT.
I won’t talk about how Michael comes up with neat strategies for the trickiest of math and reading problems, how he’s an endlessly patient teacher, or how he made every seemingly impossible question look easy and conquerable. He did all of these things. But I think what truly makes Michael special is the effort he puts into each relationship with his students. He’s always positive, he always makes you feel that you are smart and capable of accomplishing things.
As a high school student, it’s pretty common to get extremely stressed out about standardized testing. But “stressed” is the last word I would ever use to describe Michael’s personality. Stress is contagious, and Michael knows this, so his test prep environment is calming and peaceful. He never gets upset with you for making mistakes; he’s never disappointed as long as you put in the effort. To me, this made all the difference in both my score and my mentality towards life.

Working with Michael was probably the best decision I made in my college preparation process. While many of my friends were stressed out with homework and impersonal tutoring at other test prep sites, Michael helped me improve only what I needed to improve, with no homework to add on to the already stressful year at school. Michael teaches you how to think on the tests, and gives you confidence going into them, which I think is crucial to success. He helped me greatly, and it is definitely worth the price.

Choosing Mr. Test Prep as my tutor was the best decision I could have ever made. Having taken a SAT bootcamp prior to Mr. Test Prep, I was annoyed that I still couldn’t master the techniques I learned in the bootcamp. After a diagnostic test in my trial session with Michael, I was surprised to find that he wanted me to switch over to the ACT. A great decision. With only a couple of sessions, I managed to score a perfect 36 on the ACT! Unlike other SAT/ACT test preps, Michael’s relaxing demeanor helped me remain calm throughout the testing process and focus on the strategies. What I love about Mr. Test Prep is how he treats each student as an individual by highlighting the strategies that work — and don’t work — for the student. I am so grateful that I was tutored by him and definitely recommend Michael to every struggling student! 10/10

I am so confident that the Mr. Test Prep program can help almost any student get the score increase he or she is seeking, that I provide my students with a score satisfaction guarantee. What does that mean? The students will be able to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep for free, if they are not entirely happy with their scores.
