Our Leadership

Alexis Avila - Prepped and Polished

Alexis Avila, Founder

Frequently quoted by U.S. News & World Report, Alexis founded Prepped and Polished to help elementary, secondary, college-level, and adult students maximize their comprehension and overall growth in a variety of subjects. While tutoring for several small and large commercial test prep companies, Alexis envisioned founding his own independent educational service run entirely by educators whose passion for education acted as the primary driving force behind its pedagogy.

Alexis and other members of the Prepped and Polished team have collectively traveled one hundred thousand miles to educate students in person, working with well over a thousand families. Described by students as engaging and effective, Prepped and Polished’s teaching philosophy has helped students of all ages gain confidence, maximize their academic potential, and achieve dramatically improved grades and test scores.

Personalized tutoring locally in Massachusetts, throughout the US, and around the world.

At Prepped and Polished, we tailor a customized tutoring program to fit your student based on their specific needs, goals, and lifestyle. We offer a wide variety of services such as test preparation (SAT, ACT, ISEE, SSAT, etc.), academic tutoring, executive functioning development, admissions consulting and more! Prepped and Polished’s founder, Alexis, has made it his mission “to provide the best educational services available anywhere.”

We accomplish this, in part, by ensuring that we develop an effective, comfortable learning environment that meets the needs of each student. We accomplish this by offering in-person tutoring at either one of our Massachusetts locations in Wellesley, Sudbury, and Newton or through in-house sessions where students learn from the comfort of their home. We also offer virtual sessions that have ensured we can effectively meet the needs of local, national and international students.

“Our daughter jumps in the car at the end of her sessions and looks as though a weight has been lifted from her shoulders. She has confidence and this has translated to her performing so well on exams. We are so proud of her but we know she could not have done it alone.”
