Prepped and Polished are a very professional and effective team with excellent tutors, clear communication to parents and wonderful results!

Michelle P. (Natick, MA)

What a great experience! Our son’s tutor, Michelle, was excellent. While she covered all the material in depth, the approach was highly customized based on areas that needed extra attention. She was able to take what seemed like mundane tasks and made them manageable and easy to complete, ensuring he was completely prepared by test day. Alexis was super organized and always updated us on progress. He even sent our son cookies on his birthday! Of course, results matter- and Prepped and Polished delivered. I’d recommend them without hesitation.

Corinne F. (Wellesley, MA) SAT Preparation Feedback

I can’t thank you enough. Our daughter came home with a new attitude towards the SAT’s last night and felt the 2 hours she spent with you topped all of the other tutoring she has had thus far. All of a sudden her confidence is through the roof. Thank you!

1. Avoid idiom errors by memorizing sets of words that must go together, usually involving a verb and preposition.
