A-List offers the very best in home, customized tutoring for the ACT. Beginning in 2012, the ACT was actually taken by more students than the SAT and its edge has continued to grow. We have developed our own extensively researched materials that demonstrate the essential elements of mastering the ACT such as timing and question strategy. Note that for many students who have prepared for the SAT with us, it only takes a few additional tutoring sessions to transition to the ACT. Learn more about these tests and our test prep program below.

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!
