Dov E.


I attended Harvard-Westlake School here in LA, then went to UC Berkeley and UCLA, where I graduated with Golden Key, Summa Cum Laude, Outstanding Senior and Phi Beta Kappa awards. After college, I earned a Master’s in Writing from USC, and also attended UCLA Law School. You can probably tell – I like school.

I began tutoring for academic subjects and standardized tests when I was in high school, continued through college, and eventually formed my own company, The Prep School, after college. I have worked as a Master Tutor for ISEE/SSAT/ACT/SAT/LSAT/GRE/GMAT exams for more than 15 years, have ghost-written on several test prep books for the SAT, ACT, and have received perfect scores on all but one of those tests (I don’t like to say which!)

With Mulholland Prep, the idea was always to create a place where people who didn’t want any compromises in their kids’ educational journey could come and know they are getting the best.

The formula was simple, but so hard to attain: find unbelievable  tutors, pay them properly, and work hand in hand with parents and families to try to fulfill each student’s unique potential.

I’m most proud of the fact that Mulholland Prep doesn’t sacrifice the quality of our tutors or tutoring to try to grow unnaturally. I always felt that a lot of big tutoring companies are really marketing companies that happen to tutor. We’re a tutoring company. Made up of tutors who care about their students.

When I started, I didn’t have kids. Now I do, but my mantra remains the same – when it’s necessary, this is the tutoring I want to give to my kids.

When I’m not tutoring, I’m playing with my kids, my dog, enjoying a movie with my wife, or crying over the Lakers. Occasionally, cheering about the Lakers.
