BIOGRAPHY

As the owner and founder of MostPrep, Mike is is a test-preparation veteran who has already personally helped hundreds of students in the Las Vegas valley improve their standardized-test scores. Mike also previously served on the Henderson Blue Ribbon Commission on Educational Excellence and Youth Opportunity.

In the five years prior to moving to Henderson with his family, Mike was the senior director at TestTakers, a leading SAT preparation company in New York, where he was not only responsible for the score improvements of hundreds of students every year, but also trained teachers, wrote curriculum and, of course, taught classes himself. Before that, Mike spent three years teaching math at The Knox School, a co-ed boarding school in New York, where he created a year-long course for juniors who had struggled with algebra and geometry in order to get them better prepared for the SAT and ACT.
