John Oh Testimonials
“Our son was tutored by John Oh last school year. John was able to make the learning sessions fun and entertaining while getting the work done. He absolutely got our son motivated to work hard and perform at his best. The results speak for themselves, his test scores steadily increased throughout the process and he achieved outstanding results.”

“The techniques and tricks that I learned from John Oh were unmatched. Between the tutoring sessions and practice tests on the weekends, I was prepared to succeed for the SAT. The free SAT’s offered on the weekend helped greatly and are essential to ones success on the real test.”

“John Oh was the most amazing tutor. Without him and the A-List tutoring practice tests there is no way I would have been as successful as I was. John Oh always found a way to make studying fun. In addition, being able to take a practice test every week was very helpful. Without practicing weekly, I would never have been as prepared to test. Both my son and daughter used John-O at A List and their scores exceeded all expectations. His tutoring style had my children looking forward to each session with him. I have and will continue to recommend your company!!!! Now if you can just convince my kids to go to dental school I’ll be really impressed!”

“After not doing so well on the March SAT, I received help from John Oh, particularly with the math section. From March to June, through John Oh’s incredible guidance, I improved 170 points on the math section of the SAT. Each time John Oh came to tutor me he not only brought with him his extraordinary intelligence, but also an enthusiasm that always motivated me to do my best and work my hardest. I was so pleased by his assistance with the SAT that I even asked him to help me with my college essays. John Oh agreed without hesitation, and from September to December he guided me through this very difficult process. From our meetings, I feel that I have learned to analyze my writing in a more sophisticated way as well as utilize the many techniques John Oh had taught me in order to improve my essays. Having John Oh as my tutor for the amount of time I did was a rewarding experience, and I am grateful to have learned from such a remarkable teacher. I highly recommend John Oh to any student who is hoping to grow as a test-taker, problem solver, and intellectual.”

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!
