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!!!!

Brooke Green, Founder

M.Ed., Harvard University

B.A., University of California, Berkeley

Brooke has been successfully helping high school students with the college admissions process for over fifteen years. She has worked in Undergraduate Admissions at UC Berkeley and Harvard University where she learned invaluable lessons on how to coach applicants and their families.

Through her own experiences as an undergraduate at Washington University in St. Louis (where she spent her freshman and sophomore years) and at the University of California at Berkeley, (where she transferred and spent her junior and senior years), Brooke learned invaluable lessons on the unique differences between the admissions process and the college experience at two very different types of schools, one being a small private institution and the other being a large public university.

After earning a B.A. in English from UC Berkeley, Brooke experienced the other side of the admissions process when she read and scored applications for UC Berkeley’s freshman class in 2003, 2005, 2009 and 2016.

In 2005, Brooke earned a Masters in Higher Education from Harvard University. While at Harvard, she worked in the Harvard University Undergraduate Admissions Office, where she observed the Harvard College application process firsthand.

In addition to admissions support, Brooke provides the emotional support that many families need during such a stressful time. She gracefully balances the parent-student relationship and uses humor and kindness to put families at ease.

Mark Salisbury, Ph.D.

Co-Founder and CEO

TuitionFit pulls back the curtain on college prices by creating a crowdsourced dataset containing tens of thousands of anonymized financial awards that colleges have offered in the last three years. We enable every student and family to find the best financially fit colleges for them in a simple and straightforward way, whether they are just starting to build a list of college options or they are trying to negotiate a better offer from their final top choice colleges. Instead of relying on estimates, anecdotes, or a hope and a prayer, TuitionFit gives everyone the ability to go right to the source and see real prices from real financial aid offers.

TuitionFit is completely free when students or families contribute the financial aid award offers they have received to our dataset. Students and families early in the search process can access basic TuitionFit data for free or can upgrade for a small fee to see more detailed pricing information.
