Rachel Flynn is a graduate of Harvard University, where she received a B.A. with honors in the Study of Religion. While at Harvard, she performed in and directed over 25 theatrical productions, participated in the Institute of Politics, and helped to run the school’s Freshman Arts orientation program. A proud New Englander, hailing from the beautiful Berkshires, Rachel now lives in New York where she is pursuing a career in theater and film. Her love of teaching (with a background in both private tutoring and classroom education) is only eclipsed by her love of Beatles trivia. She remains staunchly neutral in all matters concerning ‘Boston vs. New York’ sports team loyalty.
I think A-List is a great organization. My tutor was positive and tailored the material to my learning style. She made learning each subject fun and presented new topics in an engaging fashion. Thank you so much to A-List for helping me achieve my personal best!
A-List gave me more than just practice tests and test-taking tips, though these were invaluable. My tutor connected with me on a personal level and helped me understand that I was capable of getting the score I wanted. Suddenly, I viewed my test-taking experience as a challenge, not a burden. I walked into my ACT with the confidence that I knew exactly how to conquer every aspect of the test.”

Both my children had an amazing experience with A-List! Steadily, she worked hard to improve her test scores. Taking the practice tests allowed her to gain confidence and learn to manage her time during the tests. Then a college advisor helped her write her college essays. She was an amazing guide who helped Phoebe focus and streamline her supplements and essays. Now she will be attending her dream college, Rice University, School of Architecture!
