"Alex Porush is the most amazing SAT tutor I can imagine. Working with him to prepare for my math SATs was fun and inspiring. He is a fantastic teacher and taught me how to approach the most difficult math problems quickly and efficiently. He was always available whenever I had any kind of question. With Alex's help, I went from a 690 in math to a 790 in math in about 2 months. I had met with a couple of other tutors and Alex is in a completely different league. I can't recommend him more highly for anyone needing any kind of math tutoring." 

-Theo, Calhoun '20

"I have known Alex for close to a decade. He worked with my older son Julian on SAT prep when he was a junior in high school. Years later I called upon Alex once again to work with my younger son Aaron, helping him with his academic coursework and ACT prep. Alex quickly transcended the role of tutor for my son Julian and became a mentor and friend that Julian could turn to. To this day, Alex continues to be a great guide to my son, giving him career advice and talking through life issues. My son Aaron was more reluctant initially to work with a tutor, but Alex was able to break through to him and help him improve his grades, ACT scores and find confidence in his abilities. Alex really delivered. Alex was and is truly exceptional. He went above and beyond helping my children and communicating with me and my husband on how our children were doing. He was always accessible and responsive to requests we had in between sessions and did a superb job of making sure my sons were fulfilling responsibilities on their end. Alex is one of the most poised, patient, and kindest gentlemen I have had the honor of working with. I cannot imagine a better tutor."

-Janet R, mother of Julian & Aaron
