Felix A (Mr.”A”)
Mr. “A”s surname  – Alvarado –  both begins with an A and has three consecutive vowels that are a’s.  Most non-Spanish speakers over the years have misspelled his last name as either “Alverado” or “Alvardo”.  To clarify, he would tell them, “straight A’s.”


"I have known Felix Alvarado, Jr. for decades. Not only is he one of the most intelligent people I know, he is a naturally gifted teacher. He is an innovator who has worked directly with his students for over 30 years. So, when he develops new curriculum or programs, you can be sure he has done so with his students in mind. Mr. Alvarado (Mr. "A") has created the first-of-its-kind college Test Prep system that works like a college course which leverages technology and gives your student direct access to Mr. "A" himself. The results have been extremely impressive. Thus, it is with utmost confidence that I highly recommend you connect with Straight "A" today!"
