Byrd Scholarship, and the Harvard Book Award. While at Harvard, Alex also founded the Fantastick Theater Company, serving as Musical Director and as President, and earned the Arthur Smithies Prize for Outstanding Contribution to Kirkland House. Even before entering Harvard, Alex was celebrated for academic excellence: he was a National Merit Finalist, an AP Scholar with Honors, and Salutatorian of Staples High School. He has been a classically trained pianist since the age of seven, winning many awards throughout his musical career, including top honors in the Renée B. Fisher Competition and the Greenwich Symphony Concerto Competition.
As a tutor, Alex has instructed nearly 1,000 students from all over the world. He is deeply committed to the idea that all students can become better thinkers; whether learning the content of a standardized test or deciphering a complex differential equation, his students have discovered that learning can be rewarding and enjoyable. Alex reaches students of all backgrounds by tutoring several pro bono students every year and volunteering in Advantage Testing’s partnership with the LEDA Scholars Program at Princeton. In those brief moments when Alex is not tutoring, he enjoys computer programming, traveling abroad, running marathons, playing the piano and guitar, and composing and producing music—not to mention raising his two children, Julien and Théodore. Alex is the head of the GMAT and GRE programs at Advantage Testing, and he is the Director of Advantage Testing of Westport, Advantage Testing of Philadelphia, Advantage Testing of Charlotte, Advantage Testing of Denver, and Advantage Testing of New Orleans.
