Tutors & Test Prep Partners

Mr. Test Prep

Michael Romano is... “Mr. Test Prep”: Elevating more thanjust a test score.If one thing is true for every student who comes through mydoor, it's that there is never enough time. With classes, teams, rehearsals,internships and after school jobs, no high school student is eager to take onone more painful and tedious responsibility. And the same goes for parents.

With the unending list of sign up dates, no parent wants onemore occasion for argument, one more difficult decision. Unfortunately, thetruth of the modern day college application process is that preparation iseverything. That's why after 14 years in the business I have come to realizethat I have two main jobs:

First and most importantly, I must build my studentsconfidence and improve their test taking skills. Second, I must take the burdenof motivation and planning off parents. Call or e-mail and find outmore!!!!
