A-List Online

No matter where you are, we can help! A-List has online tutoring, application and essay advising, and teacher training options available to families and educators.

Watch A-List senior tutor Sherwyn Fullington work with a student online.


A-List began to offer online sessions to students in New York many years ago as a practical solution to a yearly problem – snow and bad weather. We quickly realized that online is more than a band-aid, it’s an incredibly powerful means of interacting with students and families from all over the world. We utilize the most advanced conferencing tools that allow us to record our sessions, share our computer screens and pass notes to students. So, no matter where you are, we can help!

Online tutoring is a great option for students that attend boarding school, or live in areas A-List doesn’t traditionally serve, or during circumstances where traditional in-home tutoring isn’t feasible (for example, during inclement weather). Each of our instructors is trained to effectively hold tutoring sessions using online programs. These allow students and tutors to share work, write on screen and engage collaboratively in a setting that’s familiar and comfortable for kids in the digital age. While these online tools can be beneficial to international students and students outside of the Metropolitan New York area, they can also be extremely helpful for any students looking for an extra edge.

Advantages of online tutoring include:

  • No risk first online session – if a student completes a session online and is unhappy with it, we will not charge for that session
  • Keep their regular appointment to ensure continuity, communication and confidence—especially as they approach real exam dates
  • Online sessions can be scheduled to supplement in-person sessions to maximize potential
  • Schedule online sessions for students who are away for the summer or on school vacation

As a supplement to in-person or online tutoring, A-List has a suite of online resources available to assist with the test prep process.

SAT/ACT Teacher Training

A-List also has online ACT/SAT teacher training options available. Our webinar training may be the best option for you if:

  • Hosting a professional development or attending an A-List seminar is not feasible
  • You are already well-versed in the ACT and/or SAT and only require supplemental or topic-specific training

Our webinar training format involves one-on-one or small-group training with a member of our senior staff. Online training can be customized to meet teachers’ specific needs and provides an accessible forum for educators to ask their specific questions.
