Test prep sessions are currently conducted online via Zoom. They are going to last as long and cost the same as our typical in-person test prep sessions do.
Instead of working within a group, each student will work from home. The student will not sit with me in person; rather, he or she will meet with me through the online platform Zoom.
Sessions will continue to be scheduled the same way at http://www.mrtestprep.acuityscheduling.com
Your online ACT/SAT test prep appointment confirmation notices are going to have the Zoom meeting information.
When it is time for a practice test, it will be taken at home and then reviewed during our test prep classes.
You will be invoiced through e-mail.
This too shall pass hopefully sooner than later. In the meanwhile, stay safe and calm amidst these unprecedented times.
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 by the fact that the Mr. Test Prep sessions will assist almost any student increase their scores to the level he or she is aiming for. I am so confident that I offer my students a score satisfaction guarantee, which allows them to continue to attend Mr. Test Prep, without any additional costs, if they are unsatisfied with their scores.
