Test prep sessions are currently conducted online through Zoom. The length and the cost of the online test prep sessions will be the same as the typical in-person test prep sessions.
Now, the student will not work in groups, but each student will study from home. The student will not have a session with me in person; rather, he or she will connect with me online.
Students are still able to schedule sessions the same way as before at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
When students schedule their appointments the Zoom meeting info will be included in the confirmation notifications.
Whenever it is time for a practice test, it will be taken from your home and evaluated during our test prep sessions.
You will be billed through e-mail.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. For now, be safe and calm amidst the chaos.
Mr. Test Prep, Michael Romano, describes himself as making a “genuine connection with each student”. That’s truly what makes him special. He really ‘gets’ his students. He’s so cool he even hit the basketball court with my son and his friends! This chemistry enabled Michael to be both encouraging and direct with my student, like the best kind of coach. Michael set high but achievable goals, and nudged my student forward when he saw more potential. My son began working with Michael in the fall of 11th grade, prior to the junior year PSAT. As a result of that early practice and confidence building with Michael, my son received a high enough score on his PSAT to qualify as a National Merit Scholar Finalist. His top 1% PSAT test scores, followed by high ACT scores, absolutely and measurably opened college doors for my son. We appreciated that Michael had our son try both the SAT and ACT, and actually take both the SAT and ACT exams. Michael has been doing this long enough to have a data centered approach as to why he has students try both tests; he knows what he’s doing. Ultimately, my son was accepted to his dream school UCLA.

Michael Romano was exceptional at helping me build confidence with the test. After working with him I was able to walk into my test knowing I would be increasing my score significantly. He was great at addressing personal areas I needed to improve on along with giving overall strategic advice. I looked forward to going to my appointment to see my progress each week and talk to him as he is very genuine. I highly recommend him for SAT/ACT tutoring.

I stand behind the fact that the Mr. Test Prep sessions will help almost any student improve their scores to the level he or she is aiming for. I am so convinced that I provide my students with a score satisfaction guarantee, which allows them to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep, without any additional costs, in case they are not totally pleased with the results.
Adjusting to the Coronavirus Pandemic: Trial Sessions Now Online
All our free trial sessions and test prep are currently conducted online.
For the trial session, we will be connecting through the online platform Zoom.
The student will require a quiet place where he or she can work for two hours without getting disturbed.
