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.
After looking around for various folks to help my son prep for the SAT I found Michael Romano and could not be more pleased with the results. He has developed a system that was perfect for my son. I knew my son would never prep on his own – it’s just not in him and he does not have the time. I did not want to pay a lot of money only to have my son not do the work. Michael understands this. He has the kids do the work in his lovely converted garage and then he reviews what they’ve done right then and there. It’s fresh in the kids’ minds and he walks them through the thought process in a way they can understand. Instant feedback – what a concept! My son’s score increased by 310 points after working with Michael. I’m sure he wouldn’t have seen that kind of an increase with a different approach. Moreover, he saw that increase without doing any work on his own time. The only time he thought about the SAT was when he was with Michael. If your child will do work on his own, I suspect the results could be even greater. Michael relates well to the kids and is a joy to work with. I highly recommend him! – MeMe Rasmussen -parent, Saint Francis’15
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
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
