This week, I’m chatting with Alexis Avila, Founder of Prepped and Polished, about tutoring and test prep resources for students.
Alexis shares the qualities you should be looking for in a tutor. He also covers some quick tips on how to prepare for test day and I share one of my favorite donut stories.
Finally, we discuss how test prep is different for students with learning disabilities and tricks for them to perform their best on test day.
Like I mention in the video, Alexis is the host of an amazing resource parents: The Prepped and Polished Podcast. Check it out and take a listen to our episode about Why the College Admissions Process Starts After 8th Grade.
Each week, our Founder, Jordan Schanda chats with #collegeprepgurus about planning for college, building a resume, preparing for the ACT and SAT, writing essays, winning scholarships, navigating financial aid and so much more!

Looking for more college and scholarship tips and advice?
Chances are, if you’re like the parents I’ve worked with, you have the desire to help your child succeed but you’re struggling with where to start! You want to do everything in your power to make sure they can afford the college of their dreams, but the amount of information out there is downright overwhelming! What you need is someone to show you a tested step-by-step process to get prepared early, rather than scrambling at application time.
I’m Jordan… and that’s exactly what I do.
I built ScholarPrep based on my own experience applying for college and securing as many scholarships as possible. Through lots of hard work I was fortunate to be awarded nearly $50,000. Knowing my brother was not that type of student, my mom and I carefully outlined and documented the process that had worked so successfully for me. Since we started, we’ve helped students across the country create competitive applications, get into their top choice school and win scholarships to pay for their education.
