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

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.”
