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 improve their grades and test scores. While tutoring for several small and large commercial test prep companies, Alexis envisioned growing his own independent educational services company run entirely by educators, for the love of education.

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 supportive, patient, and enthusiastic, Alexis has helped students and adults gain confidence, maximize their academic potential, and achieve dramatically improved grades and test scores.

Personalized tutoring locally in Massachusetts, throughout the USA 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 test preparation for SAT, ACT, AP exam, graduate school entry exam, ISEE, SAT subject tests, and SSAT. Prepped and Polished’s founder, Alexis, has made it his mission “to provide the best tutoring and test preparation services available anywhere.” We accomplish this by offering both in-person tutoring sessions at our Natick and Wellesley, Massachusetts locations as well as national and international one-on-one tutoring, locally or remotely from anywhere in the United States and around the world.

In addition to SAT and ACT prep we work with students of all ages, learning styles, and levels of experience to drastically improve their academic performance in specific subjects like math (arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, statistics, and more), science (biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, physiology, anatomy, and more), languages (Spanish, French, Latin, German, Korean, Chinese, Farsi and more), history (US, world, sociology, psychology and more), English (writing, essay editing, critical reading, grammar review, vocabulary, literature, and more).

Transcripts and test scores can have a lasting impact on the trajectory of your student’s academic path and career. Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about the SAT, ACT, or any particularly difficult course or subject. Our combination of targeted review, study skill workshopping, and professional insight will allow your student to take on their most challenging subjects and impactful tests with confidence and produce successful results. Our staff is comprised of a diverse range of industry professionals with a passion for education. Our tutoring team members bring their enthusiasm, academic accolades (many with Masters’ and Doctorate degrees), and years of experience to every tutoring session. Give your student the professional edge with our proprietary individualized tutoring system from our elite team at Prepped and Polished.
