Alex graduated cum laude from Yale University with a double major in English and Theatre Studies, then earned an MFA in Acting from the Yale School of Drama. During the past four years, when not pursuing acting and writing, Alex has been gaining expertise teaching individual students and small classes; she tutors the ACT and SAT, two exams on which she scored in the 99th percentile. She was a National Merit Scholar and high school Salutatorian. Alex enjoys demystifying standardized tests for her students so they can test with confidence, ease, and maybe, just maybe, a sense of enjoyment. When not tutoring, Alex continues to act, write, and take pride in her home state of Colorado, the greatest state in the nation.
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!
