Born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Ari graduated cum laude from Northwestern University with a double major in Political Science and Theatre. In school, Ari held many leadership roles including Peer Advisor, which entailed helping new students with understanding the campus, college culture, and difficult schoolwork assignments. Since moving to New York in 2016, Ari has worked for numerous test preparation companies, working with over 100 students on the SAT, ACT, and SHSAT (New York Specialized High School Admissions Test). In addition to tutoring, Ari is an emerging screenwriter and filmmaker, writing and editing several projects at a time with his production company Means of Productions. When he is not writing or shepherding youths on their paths to college acceptance, Ari enjoys hiking, cheering on his Green Bay Packers, and using Oxford commas.
Ari was a perfect match for my son. His sessions were professional, productive and positive! Ari was very easy to communicate with and knew exactly what Andrew needed to focus on in order to get the score that he wanted! Andrew improved on each ACT that he took! Thank you.

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!
