Test prep classes are currently conducted through the online platform Zoom. They are going to last as long as typical in-person test prep classes and are also going to cost the same.
Instead of working within a group, each student will study from home. The student will not sit with me in person; instead, he or she will connect with me online.
Sessions will continue to be scheduled the same way at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
When you schedule your appointments all the info needed for accessing the Zoom meeting will be provided in the confirmation emails.
When needed practice tests will be taken from your home and then reviewed in our test prep sessions.
You are going to be invoiced via email.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. In the meanwhile, be safe and calm in the midst of the chaos.
Michael Romano (Mr. Test Prep) is by far the best tutor I’ve ever had.
Under his guidance I was able to see a drastic improvement with not only my ACT (my 32 became a 35) and my SAT Subject test scores, but also my attitude towards learning and the future. As someone who struggles with anxiety, and who especially dreaded these lengthy tests, I was extremely grateful that under Michael’s guidance I was able to not only ace these tests, but also use the tactics I’ve learned to ace other tests I’ve had afterwards. Michael understands the stresses and struggles that each kid is going through, and his personalized lesson plans allowed for me to work on the subjects I struggled with while learning to not fear the tests. His meditation program taught me a skill that I still use to this day, and it has given me a more positive and confident outlook on life. His friendly nature and the calm setting made me look forward to our lessons each week instead of dreading them. With his relaxed personality, patience and love for teaching, and his contagious positivity, Michael is by far the best guy out there for test prep.

Mr. Test Prep offers amazing tutoring skills and provides a safe and great place to study and explore college options. Before going to him, I had never studied for SAT or ACT, neither did I know about my options for the test. Mr. TestPrep gave insight to me about each test and my options for what I might do best in to take. Once we decided on the test he personally sought to it that I improve upon the skills I needed to do the best I could. I have many friends who are seeking to take standardized tests soon and I have recommended each of them to seek the help of Mr. Test Prep because of how great of an experience I had with him. Instead of looking back at the SAT and having it be a test that I had to take, I look back and thank CollegeBoard that it was created because I was fortunate to meet such a kind teacher in a welcoming environment. Thank you, Michael!

We were referred to Michael from a friend. The time my son spent with Michael was invaluable. After just two sessions with Michael, my son took the ACT for the first time- scoring a composite of 32 (scoring 35/36 in every subject except English). The next few sessions with Michael were spent mostly on English. The second time my son took the ACT he scored a composite of 35 with a 12 on the writing portion. Michael understands how to communicate with this age group and connect with the kids as individuals. He teaches techniques, strategies, and how to lower anxiety, all on an individualized basis. My son felt so confident before the second test. He said he knew exactly what he needed to do to succeed. My son also scored 790 and 800 on two SAT Subject Tests, which he worked on in one session with Michael. Our daughter will be going to Michael in a few years. Highly recommend.
The numbers don’t lie.

My son’s ACT score improved by 7 points and SAT score by 200 points directly from Mr Test Prep’s tutoring. These new scores are absolute game changers for my son’s college list. We looked at other tutors in Menlo Park and Palo Alto and ultimately chose Michael Romano because of his smart and unique approach. These are the three things that make his approach different from others and much more effective:
Michael Romano is the best at what he does.
