ACT/SAT Professional Development Seminars

If you are an individual teacher, tutor, homeschooler OR from a small school or organization that can’t take on an institution-wide professional development program, we have a solution for you: attend an A-List professional development seminar!

We host two-day ACT, SAT, and ACT/SAT training seminars in our NYC office on numerous occasions throughout the year. The cost to attend a 2-day NYC seminar is $1200/participant with an early bird discount of $999 if you enroll two weeks in advance. If you only attend one day of training (Math or ELA), the cost is $600/participant or $499 if you enroll two weeks in advance.  

We have also recently introduced regional seminars. In an effort to help schools lower their professional development costs, our partners have been hosting professional development seminars at their schools and offering several spots in their trainings to surrounding school and nonprofit partners. This allows the cost to be split between a variety of organizations, lowering the per participant/school fee dramatically. Please contact us for pricing for regional trainings.

If you are interested in attending any of our seminars or scheduling one in your region, please contact our Professional Development team. There are also group discounts available. See the available seminar dates below, and register for one of the two-day seminars by clicking the REGISTER button below.

Gary graduated with honors from University of Colorado with a Masters in Mathematics. He first discovered his passion for teaching as an undergrad at SUNY Geneseo where he was selected as a student mentor, TA, and tutor. While pursuing his double-major of Mathematics and Physics, Gary became involved in undergraduate physics research and later had the privilege to join a select group to conduct particle & nuclear physics research at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California. It was, however, the many hours he spent teaching and mentoring his fellow students that became his passion.

He’s taught a wide variety of subjects including all levels of math, English language and arts, physics and chemistry to students of all ages for the last 14 years. After earning his MA, Gary moved back to his home state of New York to pursue a career in education. He’s spent the last 8 years helping hundreds of A-List students achieve their dream scores, analyzing tests, writing curriculum, teaching in the classroom, and training teachers. Gary is known at A-List not only for his unparalleled math skills but also for his encyclopedic knowledge of the many species of shark and the foes of Godzilla.
