Clay Glad grew up in New York but went to school largely on the west coast, where he studied philosophy, mathematics, and linguistics. He did his graduate work in mathematical logic at Stanford, where he taught classes in logic, philosophy of mind, and ethics, and was certified as a writing instructor.
Not wanting to end up living in Des Moines, Clay opted to become an editor rather than a professor. He has edited textbooks and scholarly works in philosophy, logic and mathematics, religion, and music. His experience as an editor in designing multimedia instructional materials led him subsequently to work in developing courseware for a variety of subjects and to teaching in a wide variety of settings.
Allen Springer grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated from Emory University.
He spent a year traveling after college, and upon his return, Allen was accepted to the MA/PhD program in American Literature at New York University; however, with the change in atmosphere of academics at the time, he left after two plus years of study. While in graduate school, he taught SAT, GRE, and LSAT courses for the nation’s two largest test-preparation companies.
After graduate school, he was briefly an editor for the leading qualitative marketing research company.
Allen then found his niche, blending his business acumen and fondness of education, working for a successful Long Island test-preparation company, where he spent eight years teaching literally thousands of students and directing the company.
While looking for a new experience, Allen was presented with an interesting opportunity to work for the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). As the Acting Director of a non-profit initiative and research center at UCSD, he was tasked to improve the education and training opportunities of information and storage management professionals. The program was a nexus for industry, end users, and academia.
Allen now finds himself happily back in New York, working for A-List as one of its Directors and tutoring students for the LSAT.
While A-List doesn’t tutor for the MCAT directly, we’re pleased to introduce you to few of our trusted partners who do. Learn more about them below:
