Raving Reviews

The positive feedback from the students we work with and their families built our reputation as the go-to company for an executive functioning coach in Newton and nearby towns. Nicole G. shares her son’s experience in a 5-star Google review, “Our son, who can be quite shy, engaged easily with Jackie and developed a great working relationship with her. Jackie understood our son’s strengths and weaknesses and tailored every session and homework assignment to them. She also helped our son to develop greater confidence with the test taking process. We were able to see the progress in that area each week. Additionally, she was able to support our son in managing his stress while going through the challenging process of applying to private high schools. We highly recommend Prepped and Polished!”

On Yelp, Judi C. describes how our process helped her daughter reach her potential, “When our 6th grade daughter was struggling with executive function and organizational skills, I turned to Alexis for help. Alexis and I engaged in a lengthy, detailed discussion of my daughter’s strengths and challenges. He reviewed data I provided with extreme care and understanding of our family’s goal. Fast forward to the present: our daughter is a sophomore in high school who manages her homework with complete independence; no intervention from us. She is an honor roll student and has found a passion in mathematics and science.”
