We are currently conducting ACT and SAT test prep sessions online via Zoom. They are going to last as long and cost the same as our regular in-person test prep sessions do.
Now, the student will not study within a group, but the student will work from home. And instead of sitting with me in person, the student will connect with me online.
Students can still schedule sessions the same way as before at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
The Zoom link and instructions will be included in your appointment confirmation notices.
When practice tests are recommended, they will be taken from your home and then reviewed in our test prep sessions.
You are going to be billed via e-mail.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. In the meantime, be safe and calm amidst the chaos.
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.

Thank you, Michael, for sharing your time and talent for my kids. My two children were counseled and tutored by Michael and I can say that both benefited from his knowledge and expertise. They are different kids with many different goals, and yet he helped each individually and specifically to achieve their own test goals. One child was intent on being admitted to a pre-med program and the other to a top 10 electrical engineering program. Both achieved the test scores to get them into programs that met their goals–one to Cal’s Molecular Cellular Biology program and the other to the University of Illinois’ Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. I am convinced that the kids’ scores gave them the edge they needed to be considered for these top programs. They both were with Michael for over a year working to attain 99% scores that they did indeed attain through the tutoring. BOTH my daughter and son felt that Michael was personable, professional and knowledgable. He related to them warmly and genuinely helped them during an anxious time of high stakes. He is really amazing at what he does! We highly recommend him for test prep and helping your students attain their college dreams!Thank you Michael!!!”

I am so confident that I offer my students a score satisfaction guarantee, which allows them to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep, without any additional charges, if they aren’t completely happy with the results.

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.
