Until further notice, we are leading test prep classes through the online platform Zoom. They will last as long as typical in-person test prep sessions and will also cost the same.
Now, the student will not study in a group setting, but he or she will work from home. Instead of having a session with me me in person, he or she will do so online.
Sessions will still be scheduled at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
The Zoom link and instructions will be included in your scheduled appointment confirmation notices.
When practice tests are recommended, they will be taken at home and reviewed during our test prep sessions.
You will be invoiced via email.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. In the meanwhile, be safe and calm in the midst of the chaos.
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.

Michael’s methodology is unlike any other tutor I’ve worked with before, and the results I got with him were unmatchable. The group setting allowed me to go back and forth between working on my own just like a testing setting AND breaking down my sections while they’re fresh in my mind. While many other tutors believe in using homework as a studying tool, whenever I would attend my next session with them, I couldn’t remember why I chose the answers I did. By confining my work to my sessions with Michael, I was able to evaluate my thought process for each answer and correct my mistakes MUCH more efficiently.
Rather than most tutor’s standard lesson plan (even for one on one sessions), Michael tailors each session to what that individual student needs. My best sections were tested less frequently, and more time was spent on the sections I struggled with.
Michael understands the interplay between testing and his student’s mindset. As someone who struggles with anxiety, I have had extreme difficulty performing well on exams even when I know the material front to back. After two meditation sessions, I meditated every morning and night about a week preceding each of my SAT exams (as well as actually during my SAT) I felt less anxious, more at ease and extremely more confident.
What it boils down to is Michael truly understands his students and creates a relationship and bond with them like NO other tutor. He creates a completely safe space where mistakes aren’t scrutinized, they’re looked at as a place to improve. I improved my SAT score by about 350, but, beyond that, I can look back at my sessions with him and only have positive memories. Going to Michael was one of the best decisions I made. I genuinely looked forward to my sessions with him, and no other tutor can match that.
I stand behind the fact that the Mr. Test Prep sessions can assist almost any student achieve the score increase he or she would like to have. I am so confident that I offer my students a score satisfaction guarantee, which enables them to keep attending Mr. Test Prep, free of charge, if they are unsatisfied with the final results.
Trial Sessions in the Coronavirus Pandemic
We are currently conducting all our free trial sessions and test prep online.
For the trial session, we will be meeting online through Zoom.
In order 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, all the details needed for the Zoom meeting will be sent along with your confirmation email.
I will be in contact during the first 15 minutes of our session.
