We are now holding SAT and ACT test prep sessions online using Zoom. They will last as long as typical test prep sessions and are also going to cost the same.
Instead of doing work in a group setting, the student will study from home. Instead of meeting me in person, he or she is going to do so online.
Sessions will continue to be scheduled the same way at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
When students schedule their appointments the Zoom meeting info will be provided in the confirmation notices.
When recommended practice tests will be taken at home and evaluated in our test prep sessions.
You will be billed through email.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. In the meanwhile, be safe and calm amid the chaos.
I took the PSAT in 10th and 11th grade and found it utterly awful. I’ve never been a big fan of standardized tests, but I knew I’d have to take either the ACT or SAT in college. I was nervous about them because I didn’t score as well on the PSAT as I hoped. In 11th grade, I actually did worse on the PSAT than I did in 10th grade. I thought that this was a clear indicator that I would fail the SAT/ACT and wouldn’t get into a college that I loved. I started with Michael after a recommendation from my college counselor. I appreciated his unorthodox approach, but his encouragement sets Mr. Test Prep apart from other testing organizations. No other company has a Michael, so to speak. Of course, he taught me how to understand the structure of SAT questions, recognize patterns, and learn proper testing strategies. This all helped my score improve exponentially (around 400 points from 11th grade PSAT), but I benefitted the most from his confidence in me. Many of Michael’s students could tell you about how skilled he is at connecting with others, and I think that they would agree that his faith went a long way in convincing them that they actually could do well. In the end, I was accepted to my dream school, Claremont McKenna College. Very happy with the results and grateful to Michael for all his wisdom!

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 convinced that the Mr. Test Prep sessions can help almost any student achieve the score increase he or she would like to have, that I provide my students with a score satisfaction guarantee. What does this mean? The students will be able to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep without any additional costs, if they are not totally happy with the results.
Trial Sessions in the COVID-19 Crisis
All our free trial sessions and test prep classes are currently conducted online.
For the trial session, we will be meeting online using Zoom.
Each student is going to need a quiet place where he or she can work for two hours without getting interrupted.
