How We Do It

Every summer, we counsel our rising seniors on navigating the Common App and ApplyTexas, helping our students shape a narrative of their progress through high school. Work intensifies when it’s time for the main essays – we coach students through conceptualizing, drafting, editing, and finalizing essays that portray them in the best light possible. Once main essays are complete, we work with students on each supplemental information section to ensure a clear, consistent message. As deadlines approach, we work with students to make sure every application, recommendation letter, and transcript is sent out early to the correct institution. After managing the application process, we stay in touch throughout senior year, advising on interviews, Letters of Intent, and scholarship opportunities. 

I can’t say enough good things about Alexander! Excellent tutor. He helped my son through AP Chem II and AP Stat. What amazed me most was that he could begin teaching in a clear, understandable way as soon as he was given the topic. Highly intelligent Johns Hopkins grad who can communicate effectively with high schools students. Polite, encouraging and fun. My son really enjoyed working with him. We tried a couple of other tutors only because they were more convenient to our home and both were bad experiences. After that, we realized even more how much we appreciate Alexander.
I would also recommend Alexander for college application assistance. He reviewed some of my son’s essays and had great feedback. He has been successful in helping many students gain acceptance to selective schools.
