Everyone throughout the process was helpful, respectful, and encouraging. The tutoring was an invaluable asset in my retake studying plan.”

“Alex explained everything in simple, clear terms. After sessions, he emailed me the detailed review of our meeting and homework for next time. He was also accomodating and flexible. I could email him with questions and he always replied promptly. I could see a sizable improvement in my score at given intervals. Considering that I have not studied for a test with such broad coverage in the last twenty years, I would say that the three months of studying with Alex was definitely a game changer for me.”
