“I highly recommend Alexis and his company, Prepped & Polished (P&P), including for students who live many states away from P&P’s headquarters. Our son, a college senior, lives in Virginia. He is in the process of applying to graduate school in English. He is very busy with school and his job so commuting to a fixed location for a GRE-prep course was a daunting thought. I consulted with Alexis, who assured me that P&P could work with our son online using skype and P&P’s internet-based tutorial software. Alexis also identified a tutor that he thought would work well with our son both in terms of her educational background and personality. Alexis was right! Our son worked great with his tutor, Colleen, in preparing to take both the general and subject-specific GRE. They are able to schedule tutorial sessions at different times and days of the week to suit our son’s schoolwork demands and schedule. Colleen is also working with our son on the application process. Thanks Alexis and Colleen!”

“I reached out to Alexis for his advice on preparing for the GMAT test. After we had a discussion regarding where I currently was at (Practice Exam Score) and what my goals were, Alexis set forward a schedule of tutoring sessions and found a tutor that fit my needs. Jason was the tutor that Alexis set me up with and he was terrific. Having been a GMAT 760 scorer, he knew firsthand what it took to achieve a high score on the GMAT. My goal was to earn a 700, a benchmark that most highly-rated schools look for. Over the 10 weeks, I saw gradual progress in my practice score tests. Alexis checked in weekly to ensure that everything was going well. When I took the test, I felt fully prepared for the challenges of the GMAT. I scored much better than the 700 goal score I set – I scored a 740! Thank you to my tutor, Jason! Thank you to Alexis and Prepped and Polished!”
