Test prep sessions are now conducted through the online platform Zoom. They will last as long as in-person test prep classes and are also going to cost the same.
Instead of doing work in a group setting, the student will study from home. And instead of sitting together with me in the same room, the student will meet with me online.
Students can still schedule a session the same way as before at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
When you schedule your appointments the Zoom meeting details will be included in the confirmation notices.
When practice tests are recommended, they will be taken at home and then evaluated during our test prep classes.
You will be invoiced through e-mail.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. For now, stay safe and calm amid 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.

When you imagine a test prep tutor, what kind of person do you think of?
I’m the type of person who never worked well with adults who tried to push me or made me feel stupid, and that’s why I was really reluctant to try SAT prep.
But Michael Romano surprised me by defying the stereotype of the traditional harsh, nitpicky tutor time and time again. He never forces students to study or do homework assignments, and because he did not, I felt genuinely inspired to put in the effort on my own behalf. Rather than someone else driving my progress, I felt as though I held the reigns to my own improvement on the SAT.
I won’t talk about how Michael comes up with neat strategies for the trickiest of math and reading problems, how he’s an endlessly patient teacher, or how he made every seemingly impossible question look easy and conquerable. He did all of these things. But I think what truly makes Michael special is the effort he puts into each relationship with his students. He’s always positive, he always makes you feel that you are smart and capable of accomplishing things.
As a high school student, it’s pretty common to get extremely stressed out about standardized testing. But “stressed” is the last word I would ever use to describe Michael’s personality. Stress is contagious, and Michael knows this, so his test prep environment is calming and peaceful. He never gets upset with you for making mistakes; he’s never disappointed as long as you put in the effort. To me, this made all the difference in both my score and my mentality towards life.

I am so convinced that almost any student can improve their score to the level he or she is seeking with the Mr. Test Prep program, that I provide my students with a score satisfaction guarantee. This means the students will be able to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep without any additional charges, in case they are not completely happy with their scores.
Trial Sessions in the Coronavirus Pandemic
All our free trial sessions and test prep classes are currently conducted online.
Once someone has scheduled a trial session, we will be connecting online using Zoom.
To be able to get the most out of the trial session, it is best for the student to stay undisturbed for two hours.
Once you sign up for a free trial session, the Zoom meeting information will be provided.
I will be present for the first 15 minutes of the trial session.
