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.
My daughter has had pretty bad test anxiety in the past. In her sophomore year of high school I started looking at SAT test prep options. There are many here in Fremont – they are basically factories where they make students take tests over and over for a two week period in rooms filled with dozens of kids. I knew this wasn’t going to work for my daughter. That is when I heard about Michael.
Michael has a method that worked perfectly for my daughter. It was over a longer period of time which helped her build her test taking skills and confidence. He taught her meditation techniques that not only helped with her SAT but with all testing.
In that period of time, my daughter’s SAT score went up 300 points. My daughter was accepted to 9 of the 14 schools she applied to including her #1 choice. We are so grateful for Michael. If you are a parent like me with a child who needs more holistic work, it is worth driving over the bridge (or any distance) to work with him. Tell him I sent you!

I would recommend Michael Romano to every one of my friends and family. Mr. Test Prep taught me the most important skill in test-taking: confidence. When I started classes with him, I knew the math and grammar required for the SAT and ACT, but I wasn’t confident about my answers, leading me to perform worse. Michael not only taught me easier and faster methods of answering questions; he taught me intuition, how to identify and filter the right from wrong. Michael was able to improve my scores by leading me through the thinking process and mindset of the test, something that improved my score significantly. He also coached me on essay composition, how to express my thoughts clearly, a skill which continues to help me post-SAT. Thank you Mr. Test Prep!
