Aug 24, 2021

Ready to learn the history, philosophy, and practice of an experienced professional in the test prep industry?


Meet Alex Robayo, whose background in advanced Physics gave him the tools to break down complex concepts into simple teenage language. Originally working in Bell Labs on fiber-optic transmissions, he transitioned into education after the tech bubble burst of the early 2000s. There he found his true calling. While helping scores of students in extra help sessions, Alex was offered his first tutoring gig. The rest is history!  

Over the past years, Alex has helped countless students improve their study habits, comprehension, and test-taking skills. As a result, these students have earned better test scores, grades, and have grown in self-esteem and confidence. He currently teaches AP Physics and runs Success Prep llc in the afternoons.  His tutoring meat and potatoes are the SAT and ACTs but also specializes in math, physics, and chemistry.
