My two daughters have worked with Alexandra periodically over the past two years as they prepared to take the SSAT, SAT and ACT tests. She was very thoughtful in determining what content areas needed to be reviewed and tailoring the tutoring sessions to those particular needs. She is knowledgeable about the material on the standardized tests and test taking strategies. She thoroughly explained key concepts and strategies, while providing encouragement and support. She has been an effective tutor as well as being very easy to work with. She is patient, flexible with scheduling needs, respectful, and has a positive attitude. My daughters and I highly recommend Alexandra as a tutor.
