What Our Customers Are Saying
“Jennifer helped me hone an art of self-expression that will continue to serve me for the rest of my life. When I think back to Jennifer, I can honestly say I lucked out.” – Kyle
“Eric went more in depth with precalculus than my teacher ever did. He has a great understanding of math and makes learning much easier.” – Charlotte
“I am a freshman in college and have struggled for years in school. I would get different tutors all the time and just kept seeming to not be able to make much progress. When I heard about Alpha College Prep my mom suggested we go and try it and I have never felt more comfortable and understood by someone. From the first time we sat down together, I knew they wanted to invest their time in helping me figure out the best way I learn and the best way for me to achieve my goals. I absolutely love working with these people and could not ask for a better support team when I am struggling with my school work. This is an amazing group of people and I am so happy I get to work with them.” – Nikki B.
“We used Alpha College Prep for ACT prep for our daughter in her Junior year of High School. Robert was incredible, helping her with every portion of the exam. Her scores in science and math went up dramatically and she already had fairly good scores. We were delighted when she ended up with a 34 composite score, including a 36 in the math portion. In addition to working on exam questions, he helped her simulate exam day stress, fatigue, and had her take tests under various different conditions so she was fully prepared on exam day. She was very comfortable working with Robert throughout the process and he was extremely flexible with our crazy schedule. We would enthusiastically recommend Robert and Alpha College Prep and will be using their services for our son next year!” – Casey T.

“The team is great. They helped our son with ACT prep and general study strategies. With their guidance he pulled his ACT up 4 points, and his general GPA at Abany High has risen too!” – Dave W.
“Taylor and Robert were the best! I could not recommend them enough. They helped my daughter improve about 80 points on the SAT during the 2.5 months we saw them. My daughter adored them both. We tried another company prior to Alpha, and we both prefer Alpha.” – Iddee
“Alpha College Prep is the only tutoring service that I will use. My daughter found herself in a jam with half an Algebra 1 grade due to a new program offered at the high school she attended from 2018-2019. She was unable to attend summer school, and needed to complete an online Algebra 1 program before The 2019-2020 school year started. Robert is the tutor who helped our daughter, not only strengthen her algebraic base, but, literally supported her all the way through this intense online math class. She passed with a B+. Taylor, another tutor, is very patient, and helped me set up a schedule throughout the summer that set My daughter up for success. Robert genuinely cares about my daughter’s academic success and even gave up some personal time to connect via Skype to make sure our teen stayed on schedule to insure she would finish the course in a timely manner. I feel blessed to have had someone pass on Robert’s name to me when I was looking for help. I am continuing to use Alpha College Prep throughout both of my daughters high school careers and will definitely use them for ACT and SAT tutoring. I highly recommend their services, and words really can’t describe how thankful and amazed I am for their top notch tutoring service.” – Kristin
“My son has been going to Alpha College Prep for almost 2 years utilizing chemistry and math tutoring with Robert, SAT test prep with Taylor and now college essay writing with Jennifer. Both of us have been quite happy with the tutors and staff at Alpha. Academically, my son has raised his gpa, test scores and equally important, learned the subject matter. The tutors understand how to work with teenagers and my son feels more confident in the subject areas after his tutoring sessions. Lastly, their rates are reasonable and hours are flexible to suit the needs of students. We’ve been to other tutoring centers in Berkeley and El Cerrito, but none of them has produced as great a result as Alpha.” – Lori
“Jennifer is an excellent consultant. She brings out the best of me and inspires me to express my creativity.” – Maggie
“I would highly recommend Eric as the best math tutor our daughter has ever had. With his help, anyone can conquer math with confidence and excel.” – Diane
“Robert is incredible. He is extremely patient, very positive, and genuinely cares about the success of his students” – Kim
“I have two children who have used Alpha College Prep. We were extremely pleased with results. We have one in College now and one who is starting College in August. Alpha College Prep helped us through the College application process and prepping for SAT testing. Could not have gone through this stressful process without their help!” – Toni F.
“First and foremost, Robert is the most flexible, kind hearted, genuine and intelligent person. When he worked with me all summer to ace a chemistry course I never thought I could pass, he was the one who had faith. Lo and behold I received an A and got into nursing school. Essentially, they are willing to drive out to the house of any client and will work with them at any cost to help them reach success. My brother also has used the tutor Eric English for college Calculus and Robert Lee for college Advanced Chemistry. With their help, my hard-partying never-studying brother has only gotten A’s as a result and will likely attend medical school upon graduation. If you don’t use this tutoring service you and or your kid are missing out!!!!!!! These people are down to earth, kind, easy to get along with and overall incredibly flexible yet diligent and efficient. Have been a more than happy client since the opening of Alpha College Prep 🙂 ” – Haley H.
“We used Alpha College Prep for college counseling, ACT prep and private tutoring for my two daughters. Jennifer is fantastic. She is a very knowledgeable, patient, excellent tutor and works well with teenagers. The college application process can be confusing and overwhelming. She assisted my daughter with the entire college process from helping her to figure out what colleges she might want to apply to, navigating the application process to making sure the applications were submitted on time. She was great at making the process less confusing and overwhelming. My other daughter used Robert for private tutoring. Robert is incredible. He is extremely patient, very positive and genuinely cares about the success of his students. He is very good at teaching a variety of learning strategies and explaining things in many different ways until the student understands. I was very pleased with the services my daughter’s received. I would highly recommend Alpha College Prep.” – Kim B.
“I don’t know how we would have done this without them. I did a ton of research on different sat tutors, and I could not have made a better choice. Alpha College Prep is extremely efficient and knowledgeable . Jennifer and Taylor have gone above and beyond with their care of my daughter.” – Samira
“I am still in awe that Felix got a perfect score on the ACT! Jennifer and Taylor, thank you so much for working with him for the last 8 months. You have made a world of difference. I can’t overstate how glad we are to be Alpha College Prep customers. I am impressed with how Alpha College Prep truly crafted an approach that zeroed in on Felix’s weaknesses and worked on those.” – Lucie
“My daughter Emma really struggled with math from the time she was in first grade. We had her tested and she had a learning disability in math around processing information. In 8th grade we started her at Alpha College Prep once a week for math tutoring. Her math grade went up to an A every year in math and she became more confident in math as well. We are thrilled that we found Alpha College Prep! It helped our daughter immensely! Love them!” – Michelle
“My older son did ACT prep at a small Berkeley organization with great reviews. The appointments were at odd hours and the teachers changed all of the time. His scores improved, but I couldn’t help feeling better existed. And I was right. I tried Alpha College Prep for my younger son and have found that it is THE BEST! They are super friendly, personal, flexible, caring, smart, funny, bright… the list of superlatives could go on and on but suffice it to say that I recommend them highly. Oh, and they are affordable! Thank you Alpha College Prep team.” – Dietlind
“After having great success with our daughter, we returned to Robert for our son’s ACT prep and he was again fabulous. After struggling on his first test, Robert worked on test taking strategies and the mental aspects of the exam, along with regular preparation. And again we were delighted with a 34 composite score, including 35 on English, Science, and STEM, which were dramatic improvements over our son’s first test. Robert was incredibly reliable, flexible to our ever changing schedule, and was committed to helping our son meet his goals. After having two kids (and many friends) utilize Robert’s services, we couldn’t recommend him more strongly.” – Casey
