For the time being, we are holding test prep classes via the online platform Zoom. They are going to last as long and cost the same as our typical test prep sessions do.
Instead of working in a group setting, each student will work from home. Instead of sitting with me in the same room, he or she will connect with me online.
Sessions will still be scheduled at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
The Zoom link and instructions will be provided in the scheduled appointment confirmation emails.
When it is time for a practice test, it will be taken from your home and assessed in our test prep classes.
You are going to be invoiced via e-mail.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. In the meanwhile, be safe and calm in the midst of these challenging times.
Working with Michael was probably the best decision I made in my college preparation process. While many of my friends were stressed out with homework and impersonal tutoring at other test prep sites, Michael helped me improve only what I needed to improve, with no homework to add on to the already stressful year at school. Michael teaches you how to think on the tests, and gives you confidence going into them, which I think is crucial to success. He helped me greatly, and it is definitely worth the price.

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 increase his or her score to the level he or she is aiming for with the Mr. Test Prep program, that I provide my students with a score satisfaction guarantee. What does that mean? The students will be able to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep free of charge, if they are unsatisfied with the results.
Trial Sessions in the Coronavirus Pandemic
We are currently holding all our free trial sessions and test prep classes online.
Once someone has scheduled a trial session, we will be meeting using the online platform Zoom.
To be able to get the most out of the trial session, each student will need a place to work where he or she can remain undisturbed for two hours.
When you book a free trial session, the Zoom meeting information will be provided.
I will be in touch within the first 15 minutes of the trial session.
