For the time being, we are leading test prep sessions online via Zoom. They will last as long as our usual in-person test prep sessions and will also cost the same.
Now, the student will not study within a group, but he or she will study from home. Instead of meeting me in person, he or she is going to do so virtually.
Students are still able to schedule a session the same way like before at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
When students schedule their appointments all the details needed for accessing the Zoom meeting will be sent along with the confirmation notifications.
When needed practice tests will be taken at home and evaluated in our test prep classes.
You are going to be billed through e-mail.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. In the meanwhile, stay safe and calm amid these challenging times.
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!

Mr. Test Prep offers amazing tutoring skills and provides a safe and great place to study and explore college options. Before going to him, I had never studied for SAT or ACT, neither did I know about my options for the test. Mr. TestPrep gave insight to me about each test and my options for what I might do best in to take. Once we decided on the test he personally sought to it that I improve upon the skills I needed to do the best I could. I have many friends who are seeking to take standardized tests soon and I have recommended each of them to seek the help of Mr. Test Prep because of how great of an experience I had with him. Instead of looking back at the SAT and having it be a test that I had to take, I look back and thank CollegeBoard that it was created because I was fortunate to meet such a kind teacher in a welcoming environment. Thank you, Michael!

I am so convinced that the Mr. Test Prep program will help almost any student increase their scores to the level he or she is looking for, that I offer my students a score satisfaction guarantee. What does this mean? In case the students are unsatisfied with their scores, they will be able to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep without any additional costs.

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.

Mr. Test Prep is the BOMB! For any teenager looking for a way to boost test scores, don’t hesitate, this is your guy! I cannot believe I am saying this, but I actually enjoyed going to test prep because Mr. Romano was funny, engaging, and always pushed me to be my best. The format of the sessions was really unique and allowed me to focus on what needed work. I legit wish that Mr. Test Prep was my teacher for all my classes at school. Happy to say that my solid score helped me get into UC Berkeley, go bears!!
