Nancy Steen

Nancy Steen is the co-founder of Orgoman.com and CEO of Romano Scientific. Nancy was first approached by Dr. Romano with an idea to DAT Prep and OAT Prep materials and other science materials to students worldwide. It soon became apparent to her that those students who followed Dr. Romano’s guidance and studied his materials reached great success. Students score high on the DAT Exam, OAT Exam or MCAT exam. After 20+ years as a business professional, she gladly took the opportunity to join Dr. Romano’s mission to help students worldwide gain access to his life work

Prof. Denis Barengolts

Denis Barengolts has been a tutor at Romano Scientific for 14 years teaching Biochemistry, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, SAT chemistry, SAT Biology, A.P. Chemistry and A.P. Biology in groups and individual lessons. He also has worked as a Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Neurovirology Research scientist for 11 years focusing on neurodegenerative disorders and infectious diseases. Denis received his Bachelor’s degree in Bioinformatics from The College of Staten Island and his Master’s degree in Biological Sciences from Hunter College.

“Denis is easily the best tutor I’ve had in my academic career. His ability of breaking down what initially seemed like intimidating and extremely difficult material into simple, comprehensive terms made learning fun and rewarding. I could not recommend him more, and simply cannot imagine doing so well in the course without him.”

– Michelle Weinberg

“Not only does Denis always keep us captivated when he teaches, but he’s become more than just a tutor. He really has extensive knowledge in every topic he teaches, enough to answer all the crazy questions and theories on science I may have. I couldn’t thank him enough because the truth is, that without him, I wouldn’t have received an A in Organic Chemistry I. Thank you Denis for all the laughs and good times, and not just for being an outstanding tutor but a great friend too.”

“After struggling with AP chemistry for the first half of the year, I decided to attend tutoring sessions with a friend who recommended Kerry. Since then, Kerry has filled preexisting gaps while also teaching me new material. Her methods are clear and precise, allowing for maximum retention. I feel ready to tackle college chemistry and the AP exam under Kerry’s advisement.”– Deirdre 

“A friend and I were having trouble with AP Chem until we began tutoring with Kerry. The notes and advice she provides for me help me to study not only during tutoring sessions, but also on my own time. Her methods for problem solving are clearer and simpler than those that I learned in class and help me to understand much more than I otherwise would have.”– Leyla Adali
