Program Coordinator, New York
Columbia University (BA)
Subject Specialties: SAT/ACT, English, Philosophy
Andre holds a BA from Columbia University, where he majored in both English Literature and Philosophy. Shortly after graduating, he began his teaching career as an ESL instructor in Seoul, South Korea. Upon returning to New York in 2014 with a newfound affinity for language education (and kimchi), Andre taught ESL in a variety of contexts and began tutoring academic subjects for several well-known tutoring companies.
Andre joined A-List in early 2015 as an SAT program instructor, and since has taught more than 30 programs and hundreds of students for schools and educational organizations throughout NYC and New Jersey. He makes use of his diverse background of experience daily, appreciating fully how each class and student might benefit from a unique approach or pedagogical technique.
Outside of the classroom, Andre is a devoted guitarist with a wide range of musical interests. He will never say no to a live show, and is known to incorporate what he’s learned from music and the arts into his academic lessons.
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!
