Test prep sessions are now held using the online platform Zoom. They are going to last as long and cost the same as our regular in-person test prep sessions do.
Now, he or she will work from home, as opposed to working within a group. The student is not going to sit with me in person; rather, he or she will connect with me online.
Students will still be able to schedule sessions the same way as before at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
The online SAT/ACT test prep appointment confirmation emails will have the Zoom meeting details.
If practice tests are recommended, they will be taken at home and then evaluated during our test prep sessions.
You are going to be invoiced via email.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. In the meantime, stay safe and calm amid the chaos.
Michael Romano (Mr. Test Prep) is by far the best tutor I’ve ever had.
Under his guidance I was able to see a drastic improvement with not only my ACT (my 32 became a 35) and my SAT Subject test scores, but also my attitude towards learning and the future. As someone who struggles with anxiety, and who especially dreaded these lengthy tests, I was extremely grateful that under Michael’s guidance I was able to not only ace these tests, but also use the tactics I’ve learned to ace other tests I’ve had afterwards. Michael understands the stresses and struggles that each kid is going through, and his personalized lesson plans allowed for me to work on the subjects I struggled with while learning to not fear the tests. His meditation program taught me a skill that I still use to this day, and it has given me a more positive and confident outlook on life. His friendly nature and the calm setting made me look forward to our lessons each week instead of dreading them. With his relaxed personality, patience and love for teaching, and his contagious positivity, Michael is by far the best guy out there for test prep.
Woodside High School 2021
As I was starting to get prepared for the SAT, I knew I needed a tutor to help me improve my skills and reach my score goal. Mr. Test Prep not only helped me reach my goal for the SAT, but he also helped me relax along the way. I came into SAT prep thinking it would be stressful the whole time through, and while it was stressful in some parts, Mr. Test Prep taught me and showed me that it’s just one little tiny road bump. Before one of my test dates was coming up, he taught me some meditation techniques to help me relax. I was never one for meditation before, but I could see how much he valued his students through this one simple act. Mr. Test Prep takes SAT/ACT tutoring one step further by not only improving his student’s academic skills but also providing a human connection. I can fully attribute reaching my SAT goal to the help of Mr. Test Prep. 🙂
I am so confident that almost any student can increase his or her score to the level he or she is aiming for with the Mr. Test Prep sessions, that I offer my students a score satisfaction guarantee. What does this mean? If the students are unhappy with their scores, they will be able to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep free of charge.

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.

My son’s ACT score improved by 7 points and SAT score by 200 points directly from Mr Test Prep’s tutoring. These new scores are absolute game changers for my son’s college list. We looked at other tutors in Menlo Park and Palo Alto and ultimately chose Michael Romano because of his smart and unique approach. These are the three things that make his approach different from others and much more effective:
Michael Romano is the best at what he does.
