Alex Weiner, president of Breakaway Prep’s Westchester office, majored in American civilization at Brown University, suffering much heckling from friends and family's not-so-witty bon mot, "Isn't that a contradiction in terms?" He shrugged off peoples' concerns and continued hobnobbing with celebrity students of that era (late 1980s). Since beginning to work with Westchester and southern Connecticut students in 2001, his team has helped over 1,200 students apply and get accepted to the right colleges. He is a much sought after SAT and ACT tutor and is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), the New York State Association of College Admissions Counselors (NYSACAC), and the Westchester/Putnam/Rockland Counseling Association (WPRCA).While other kids spent their middle and high school years playing baseball or practicing the clarinet, Alex sat in his room memorizing the World Book Encyclopedia and the Oxford American Dictionary. Mr. Weiner also proudly wields an MBA from the Columbia Business School and a Master's of Arts in Teaching from Stony Brook University. He has his Permanent Certification from the New York State Department of Education in multiple subjects for grade levels 7 - 12.
The thing I really appreciated about Breakaway Prep was their flexibility. If there was a track meet or play rehearsal, tutoring schedules could be rearranged. And I think it was the regular practice tests and personal feedback that made it possible for two of my kids to take the SATs once and be done with it.
