This review is long overdue! I have been a repeat client of Alma Mater (and Paul) for proctored testing over the past year. As a student of UC Berkeley Extension, I found myself in need of a proctor for each of my exams over the course of several semesters. A Google search led me to Alma Mater, and I called and gave my information to a very friendly receptionist. Not long after, Paul contacted me by phone to set up my exam date. He was professional, thorough, and incredibly friendly! He was also available any time or day that worked for me!
We agreed to meet at a location not far from either of us (a public library) on my exam date, and he arrived early, prepared with my printed exams and all of the necessary documentation from the school for me to complete – I didn’t have to worry about a thing! We found a quiet space and after I had signed my forms, he explained the procedure, and allowed me to begin my exam. He sat quietly, working on his laptop until I was finished, and reviewed my work to make sure it was ready to be submitted.
The next few times we met were exactly the same; consistently perfect! We ran into several issues of distractions from other library patrons, and Paul was determined not to let those distractions impact my exam performance. He kindly asked others to lower their voices, and in one instance, requested assistance from a librarian to enforce the rules when some teenagers were being extremely loud and obnoxious.
I can’t say enough good things about Paul. He goes out of his way to make an unpleasant task (exams, ugh!) stress-free and comfortable. He is punctual and fully prepared each and every time, doesn’t reschedule, doesn’t cancel, just makes it easy from start to finish. On top of that, he’s kind and funny, and the process is just like hanging out with a friend, which definitely helps the nerves go away! Thanks to Paul and AMT for many pleasant experiences!
