Alex Hollis, Founder of Beat the Wonderlic
My name is Alex and I am the founder of Beat the Wonderlic.
I have gone through what you are going through now.
A little background on me: I am a Teach For America alum who taught high school physics in Mississippi.
Teach For America takes highly motivated leaders who want to make a difference in education and places them in high-needs American schools. It is a competitive program, but I was fortunate enough to be accepted after graduating college.
I was assigned to teach high school physics, and my next step was to pass a Praxis II Physics exam to become a certified teacher. If I passed the test, I could teach. If I did not pass the test, I would not be certified.
My career was riding on my ability to pass a physics exam (which I had not studied since high school).
I immediately purchased the only Praxis II Physics study guide available and studied it from front to back.
The study guide was terrible. Nothing was explained. There was no proper review of any of the concepts on the test. The exam looked completely different from the practice tests.
I FAILED THE TEST BY ONE POINT. I remember the day I found out – I was on vacation with my family when my score report came in. My family tried the rest of the day to cheer me up, but I was just so disappointed – I felt let down by the study guide I had purchased.
I had one more chance to pass the exam in time to get certified. This time, I grabbed as many physics books as I could and compiled my own study guide. I finally passed.
I understand what you are going through now – the stress of having to pass a test to get your dream job. That is why I am here to help and want to do everything I can to make sure that you beat the Wonderlic test that stands in the way of your dream job.
I have a passion for teaching and a knack for preparing students for standardized tests.
The high school at which I taught at was, at the time, the lowest performing school in Mississippi. My average high school student was on a 3rd-grade reading level. The school would occasionally run out of
One of my goals as a teacher was to prepare my students for the ACT. I issued a diagnostic test at the beginning of the year, and the mean score for my students was a 9 out of 36. We had a lot of work to do.
Just as I had to do with myself to pass my physics exam, I broke down the ACT for my students to make it as simple as possible. After much preparation and hard work, my students, on average, doubled their scores. One student, in particular, absolutely crushed the ACT, earning him a full scholarship to his dream school.
I became addicted to preparing people for their standardized tests and sharing their excitement and pride when passing their exams.
I can’t wait to help you pass your exam next
This is now my full-time job.
After my two-year commitment in Teach For America, I moved back home to Boston and eventually started this business. I now dedicate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to helping people pass their Wonderlic exams, which is why you will almost always see me available for chat on beatthewonderlic.com and why I answer all customer emails within 12 hours or less!
By far, my favorite part this job is connecting with people. If you have any questions or concerns about the Wonderlic, about this study guide, or you just want to reach out and say hello, please feel free to connect with me at any time.
