Customized Test Preparation & Bootcamps

The A-List Approach

Standardized tests dominate the process of applying to colleges. Between SATs, ACTs, AP Exams, IB Exams, IELTS, and A-Levels, high school can be a very stressful time. With more than 3 million students competing for spots in the world’s best colleges, the SAT and ACT are the focus of families around the world.

A huge part of being successful on these exams is having the right preparation program. This is where A-List comes in. Our instructors help students develop their problem-solving and critical thinking skills, which are vital not only for the SAT or ACT but also for their academic careers in university and beyond.

Built around customized, one-on-one tutoring, our comprehensive program takes a personalized approach for each student. A-List works hard to match the student’s learning style with the tutor who we feel best complements their personality, goals, academic needs, and interests. For most students, this initial step is the most important. Once we find the right match, we begin the student’s program with weekly lessons, individualized homework assignments, and regular practice exams.
